After the PNG police stormed Manus, it is now our responsibility to question the government on what their real endgame is. Dutton washing his hands will not do.
With the results official, the real challenge is what comes next. While the postal vote split us, it is our responsibility to return as one, to debate.
It’s been a rather violent week, punctuated by the abuse of Sam Dastyari, assumed peace in the Middle East and the prohibitive standards of decorum.
The latest dual citizenship bungle revealed something vicious. Instead of fronting the High Court, the Coalition decided to cheapen the horror of the Holocaust.
After the decision to ban climbing Uluru got far more attention than the statement of the same name, I’m wondering if the ignorance shown is deliberate.
As the Michaelia Cash situation spools out of control, you have to wonder who actually benefitted from this titanic clusterboink.
Happy Sunday! This week NZ made us look old, a very important bill cleared the first hurdle and one citizen took on the man…with bants!
As a nation, we seem to have a bit of a Tony Abbott problem. For whatever reason, we just can’t stop listening to him.
Charlie Perkins is a name familiar to many, but his acts lesser so. In fact, the man literally spent his life attempting to push us ever closer to equality. A true icon.
Pauline Hanson raising the voting age to 21 makes a certain kind of sense. But, I vote that she missed an opportunity to push it further. Fortunately, I’ve got her back.
Don Chipp was a politician who looked to vote on the issue, not party politics. An unabashed centrist, he promoted the value of remaining true to your station. Oh, how we need him now.
An op-shop formal, a rainbow bullet in the foot and a blunt attempt to hang with the cool kids all found themselves in the pit of #Auspol this week. So, who won?
I’ve voted, had my say, and made my voice heard. However we who vote Yes should not forget that we could easily be ignored, and all the pain and hurt would be for nothing. I hope I’m wrong.
While the ongoing energy issue rolls on, leaving us in the dark, we should know that parties on all sides are powering our disgust.
Welcome back to another week of your life that you won’t be getting back. But don’t think about that, North Korea has launched warheads over Japan.
We made a mistake with Malcolm Roberts: we fought back, and he took that as us legitimising his insanity. Let’s not do the same with Lyle Shelton.
A regional candidate has decided to halt the mudslinging once and for all, penning an oath to promise that he’ll never again unfairly criticise his opponents on social media. Best of luck, bucko.
Hollywood descended on Canberra, an inexplicable promotion and the debut single from Alex Jones. It was a very stupid week in #AusPol.
Despite the obvious failings of the current political system in this country, AusPol has completely lost their minds over where people are from. At least Pauline’s above board. Right?
The left’s vociferous criticism of the coalition-funded response to Get Up! is telling, as they’re criticising something they created.
A missed court date, the death of comedy and a nonsensical sentencing all happened this week in AusPol. Plus Pauline. But we’ve ignored her.
Last week something important was achieved by the Government, but it passed without discussion. It’s not that I blame the left, maybe they’re just hard-wired to pick fault.
