What a week it has been. old enemies have kicked off fresh hostilities, Peter Dutton hit both a new high and a new low, and one man took a train ride he’ll never forget.
With Peter Dutton beckoning South African farmers to step to the front of the immigration queue and ignoring everyone else, who he loves is obvious.
A stupid way to get fired, an offer of participation and a ruined commute stained the walls of #Auspol this week. Welcome to the fun-zone.
As we speak, the Dutton camp is using their expanded powers to reduce the impartial nature of law, looking to install those who follow his rhetoric.
Despite a whole city rising against his rhetoric, Peter Dutton’s tone is nothing new. In fact, blaming the other is a well worn path in Australian politics.
The ongoing crisis at Manus is not just an issue that needs solving, it is also a slash across the face of the Australia we grew up idolising.
To a lot of people, the extension of Peter Dutton’s powers and our increased militarism is nothing more than fear mongering. However, the awful truth is that these changes are needed to reflect the modern world.
The proposed changes do nothing but subject potential Australians to unnecessary financial hardship and a series of uniform tests to prove something unique as their “value”.
Judge Judy fantasies, inadvertent self-flagellation and a footrace to the bottom. Winners, all. However, in the harsh game of #AusPol, who secured their Internet legacy?
Budget impersonations, schoolyard hijinks and tasteful semi-nudes. It’s been a fairly normal week in the rolling seas of #AusPol. Let us wheel out the participation ribbons.
The morning after a public holiday. Why? While you were dreaming of a way out, Marine Le Pen quit her party, Cory Bernardi built his, and M Night Shyamalan returned to form.
Modern day Australia is an increasingly divided country, but there’s one thing we all can agree on. Our rampant dislike of Peter Dutton.
Yesterday, the Turnbull Government reached peak Turnbull Government, in that they’ve become fluent in doublespeak, using it on multiple fronts.
Sunday. The shortest day of the week – and what a week it was – with pettiness ruling, as Sean Spicer got nasty, and Peter Dutton outdid him, before McDonald’s cooked them both.
Forget about the ABCC, the biggest issue befalling the corridors of power this week involves a fenced lawn. I pretended to be an investigatory journalist, but sat at home to file this report.
Morning, all. What happened while you were asleep? Well the nation rose as one to criticise Dutton, Trump announced what his plan is, sort of, and a sunkissed island became solar-powered.
Violence from Russia, posturing from Pete, insanity from Pence, and a Californian city reelected a dead guy. At least someone had the right idea this week.
The return of the Right has been derided, and aided, by a vicious Left. But when I consider the conditions that fuelled our ascension, even I’m uninspired to celebrate.
“This will send the strongest possible signal to people smugglers.” Malcolm Turnbull calls for life bans for asylum seekers, the latest step in his government’s reprehensible immigration policy.
The reanimation of a corpse, a senator dropping bombs and an atomic friend-zoning was all present this week in #AusPol. So, who won?
This week, Bill Shorten’s star has started to rise, the Liberals have fallen from grace and Google’s gotten itself into a sticky situation.
Immigration Minister Peter Dutton has been under fire for his recent comments about refugees. But is he wrong?
