Research around the depths of loneliness Australians face has triggered a thought in Gretel Killeen: if loneliness was viewed as the economic burden to government it actually is, would they take more action?
While both sides of the government saying sorry to the victims of child sexual abuse, they must now act on it. No longer will the people tolerate a Royal Commission and a speech.
Recently, I was pressed on my views about Manus and Nauru. Having recently seen the other side of people smuggling in Syria, I know that those for Manus are against logic and decency.
The inability to find a park close to their station is something all commuters unfortunately face. Good government means solving this problem.
This week, we saw the people stand against the commercialisation of the Opera House. But one must believe that was a battle, in a war that still rages.
While I applaud the Morrison government for rethinking education funding, this should represent the first step, not the last.
This week, the Coalition announced that they will not be pursuing a renewable energy target beyond 2020. This flies in the face of both logic and the realities we face.
Despite the higher fines and the measures this government has introduced, the responsibility to help our farmers lies with every Australian.
Women are subject to behavioural expectations. If we don’t hold our anger, we’re viewed as “hysterical” or “out of control”, not worthy of what we seek. Serena Williams is merely the latest example of it.

Scott Morrison has vowed to handle it internally, but the bullying during the spill that placed him in power should be openly discussed in the public forum.
I see it every day in this country, in the matter of gender, one invariably blames the other. I suggest we all start being responsible for our own actions.
Our new Energy Minister is the man behind the NEG’s collapse, and a firm denier of climate change. There might be new faces at the top, but the message remains the same.
There has been $9 billion worth of crowd land sold under the NSW government. The waterfront Woy Woy property selling for $38,000 is just the tip of a very questionable iceberg.
Recently, I was asked to spy on a close friend’s close Tinder date. I agreed, but now hope I don’t have a case of Tinder Transmitted Disease.
As our populations grow ever older, our thinking should evolve with it. Ashton Applewhite believes that age is only a number, but it holds infinite value.
The censorship laws in this country do not reflect our modern experience. Instead, our government is making our choices for us.
I applaud the Coalition for standing up for the victims of DV in court. However, the Legal Aid professionals who will take on the task are already stretched to the limit. They need greater funding. That wasn’t part of their announcement.
We need to recognise that the human rights abuses of asylum seekers is our nation’s awful legacy, and Julian Burnside knows who is to blame.
Despite numerous opportunities to change course, the Liberal government continues to fail our schools. We’ll restore every dollar of funding cut.
