Some particularly rough #AusPol discourse, stolen identities and a metamorphosis into an inanimate object. Move over, Juarez, here comes Canberra.
This week, we’ve seen the poltergeist of Tony Abbott rearranging the furniture of the coalition leadership, but I fear the jump scare no longer gets a reaction.
The Coalition tearing down safe schools has revealed an interesting point. It’s not that they don’t understand our complaints, they just don’t care.
The rebirth of a true artist, the selling of one’s soul for sashimi, and the death of tradition, all serious, all present this week in #Auspol. So, who won? No-one you dolts.
A spot of legal vandalism, an incorrect choice of aircraft and a budding buddy movie in the pipe…the week in #AusPol had many things, all of them stupid.
The familiar face of extracurricular parliamentary spending has knocked on our door once more, but who should we blame? The people who take advantage, or the culture that says it’s fine?
Monday. Hooray to you too. What happened while you were asleep? Well, an Australian academic was freed from China, Colombia suffered a murky tragedy and the creator of the Rainbow Flag left us.
Scott Morrison’s appearance on Insiders yesterday drove home a truth. The Coalition is out of ideas, and as a Liberal voter, I feel poorly.
A rom-com fantasy fulfilled, a classic switcheroo and a refusal of a tasty pork pie. The question remains. Who enacted revenge this week in Auspol?

The PolitiScope podcast dissects the next great social question of our time: should we implement a universal income moving forward, or will that push us back?
Hello all, and welcome to this week’s Current Affairs Wrap. We’ve had terror in London, a faint heartbeat from Obamacare and a unique tribute to Harmony Day from our PM.
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.
