The Coalition’s worst Newspoll a decade should make it clear. Our brand of self-serving politics is now beyond our tolerance.
Be wary of the trumpeted fears of ‘foreign interference’, as they may be used to control those of our own backyard, not those from over the fence.
While her outburst was deplorable, it seems that Cash might have been on the money. A true cultural change is in order.
Yesterday we lost our minds when George Christensen uploaded a questionable image to Facebook. While it was a silly thing to do, our reaction didn’t fit.
The more things change, the more they stay the same. In the week just gone, Donald crashed through the floor, an actor faced sexual harassment allegations and memes swept in to save us from ourselves.
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.
It’s finally over. While those who supported marriage equality are now basking in victory, I feel that we should not forget the brutality that got us here.
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.
As the Michaelia Cash situation spools out of control, you have to wonder who actually benefitted from this titanic clusterboink.

We seem to be moving from common sense to fear as the national currency. If the Australia of our parents is truly dead, lets spent our inheritance wiser.
One Nation is a polarising force, however, with smart moves with the economy, more swing voters may become endeared to Pauline.
We decide on Saturday, but the voices that grumble “they’re both the same” should know that apathy is a dangerous way to elect a leader.
The apathy of the almost 1 million Australians who decided not to enrol to vote stems from problems within the system, not the system itself.
As #election2016 kicks off here, Derryn Hinch recalls some Hunter S Thompson-type moments on the American presidential election trail.
Malcolm Turnbull kicked off the election with a plea to avoid Labor’s high-taxing, debt and deficit agenda – but history shows that the Libs may not be able to do any better.
We love exposing the weak in the world. This week it included the Pope in the US primaries. Let’s all point and laugh quietly amongst ourselves
