Well, much like Highlander, there could only be one… One #AusPol topic this week, that is, as 18C drunkenly steered RMS Political Discourse awry.
With Ivanka having the ear of the President, I do not believe we should focus on nepotism. I believe we should look at her clashing political views.
Yesterday, the Turnbull Government reached peak Turnbull Government, in that they’ve become fluent in doublespeak, using it on multiple fronts.
Turnbull’s changes to 18C have been tabled, but what do you think? We’ve asked both sides of the fence to give their perspective.
The trial of the card that stops welfare recipients from buying “non-essentials” like alcohol is complete. Alan Tudge has hailed it as a success, but almost half of the users disagree.
As a proud and angry leftist, I’ve discovered something: our vociferous criticism of the Coalition has swayed them in absolutely nothing.
Rachel Maddow’s exclusive report on Donald Trump’s 2005 tax returns exposes it for what it is: a deliberately leaked distraction from the real, serious issues within Trump’s presidency.
An unexpected comment, rattled chains beyond the grave and a rather awkies presser. Who musked themselves in #AusPol this week?
Welcome back to TrumpFact, a measure of the administration, sans coloured opinion; just the black and whites of absolute facts. You judge.
Holland’s banding together to deny Geert Wilders prime ministership in the Dutch election yesterday is a bold example of what can be achieved elsewhere.
As it turns out, Pauline Hanson’s WA blockbuster was a bit of a flop. But as Hollywood lore stateth, we shouldn’t worry about it, we should worry about the sequel.
Parting, as a great person said, is such unnecessary sorrow. With Parliament green-lighting the Brexit, expect a particularly messy divorce.
I recently entered into a lively Internet debate with a WA candidate over their proposed changes to the GST. It quickly spiralled out of control.
Despite the staggering results of the WA election, it’d be foolish to think that the growing Right have been bested by one vote.
Tony Windsor this week’s guest on PolitiScope, the new platform where opposing, yet intelligent political discussion lives. Here, Tony discusses the challenges of regional Australians and gives his take on Turnbull.
A baby boomer discovered memes, the English Empire returned and an intern printed some paper. What a week it was in #AusPol. So, who won?
We’re all about objective fact here at The Big Smoke, so each week we’ll bring you TrumpFact: a simple measure of the good and ill the man creates. We won’t judge. That’s your job.
When Malcolm Turnbull speaks, the nation binds together to disagree. But if we took his comments on his energy plan seriously, we might get somewhere.
A Webster’s worthy dose of doublespeak, the re-emergence of the colour line, and a musical interlude all featured in #AusPol this week. But who won? Well…
I’m pro-life, but I strongly disagree with the religious direction the movement is being steered down, as do I the political rhetoric that secured the Presidency.
Yesterday, the news circled around two pieces of little consequence, while the actual news went unheralded. We avoided the recession, and that should be the issue. To the Libmobile!
Just prior to Trump’s inauguration, I travelled to the United States and met Gord, a man who represents the backbone of the 45th Presidency. Desperate for change. Desperate to be right.
