Well, much like Highlander, there could only be one… One #AusPol topic this week, that is, as 18C drunkenly steered RMS Political Discourse awry.
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.
As a proud and angry leftist, I’ve discovered something: our vociferous criticism of the Coalition has swayed them in absolutely nothing.
Lately, it seems that Canberra can only agree to disagree. So, I’ve taken the liberty of forming three policies that could pass without complaint.
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.
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.
Recent legislation quietly passed through the Senate last week that will allow the government to release the private information of citizens they believe to be misleading the public. Proof, is not necessary.
Monday. Get away from her, you bitch. What happened while you were asleep? Well, Bob Hawke returned to the fold, Darwin didn’t get its cyclone and two F-35’s were defeated by a drizzle.
PolitiScope podcast speak to Robin Margo SC and The Big Smoke’s publisher Alexandra Tselios about Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to Australia this week.
We’re taking a week off Trump, but it was still a week to forget. Tony Abbott returned to rock the boat, and a Michelin star was mistakenly awarded. But NASA discovered a system of Earth-like planets, so there’s still hope.
The final form of Malcolm, the re-return of the returning returner and one very sad panda. What a week of #AusPol it was. We survived it. At least until Sunday, you know, when I have to work, yeah?
Yes, while we may blame the Coalition for all things this week, we should wonder why Bill Shorten’s criticism hasn’t been volcanic.
Morn-o. What happened while you were asleep? Well, we saw a new side to Clive Palmer, the same old side of warfare, and a welcome, furrowed brow on QandA. Hooray.
Donald Trump, Brexit, the rise of Pauline Hanson. That’s fine. However, if we continue this path of who’s complaint is loudest, I fear for the next election cycle.
Good Judgement Day to you all. Today, I yearn for the rapture. What happened while you were asleep? Well, the Alt-Right found it’s new Pepe, we have a suspect in the murder of Kim Jong Nam, and the Nokia 3310 is back, for fudge’s sake.
When Bernardi turned his back on the Coalition, a brief pang of SSM optimism was felt: would it now be discussed differently? We quickly got our answer.
Well, good morning to you. What happened while you were asleep? Well the Trump-Trudeau handshake ushered in a new era of journalism, Meryl Streep practiced for her next role and Jacqui Lambie was eviscerated by a TBS alum. Huzzah!
The collective roargasm described by the press gallery post-Turnbull’s volcanic QT spasm was done so in a lazy pursuit of headline, and sans the proper objectiveness.
It was a very shouty week. Arnold vs Trump, Turnbull vs Shorten, us vs the sun. But now that we’ve survived it (sort of), it’s time to go back to the very recent future…
A deflection, a donnybrook and an opportunity for sweet #AusPol merch squandered… We’re wondering who escaped Question Time’s first week with their dignity intact. (Trick question.)
Blergh. Daylight. Time for bed. What happened while you were asleep? Well, Jack Nicholson is back in Hollywood, Donald Trump got some reading advice and Centrelink will be held accountable by the senate.
