The best analysis and discussion about Australian politics. Presented by Eddy Jokovich and David Lewis, we go to all the places the mainstream media doesn't want to go.
||CleanA Victorian Landslide, Men Behaving Badly And Government Survival||Another wipeout for the Liberal Party in the southern state of Victoria means their federal counterparts need to watch out, with their election due by May 2019. Was Victoria a win of the good over the bad? No, it shows winning election campaigns can...||5 12 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanWentworth History In The Making, The Politics Of Asylum Seekers And Selling A Prime Minister||We had history in the making in the seat of Wentworth, a by-election thrashing of the Liberals following the resignation of Malcolm Turnbull, and we now have another independent on the crossbenches – come on down, Kerryn Phelps. The LNP has slipped...||5 11 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanTrouble Brewing For The Liberals And Feeling The Love Of A New PM||The Liberal Party is facing challenges in three big elections – Victoria, NSW and federal – with a few other challenges in the Wentworth by-election. But the biggest issue is money – they haven't got enough to run these elections and, with their..||27 9 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanThe Seven Days Of Madness In Canberra||It's been dubbed the week of madness in Canberra, but it was also a week of gross incompetence and a fine example of the poor political management that has encompassed the Liberal National Party since it formed government in 2013. Why turn up to a...||30 8 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanA Super Saturday And The Big Media Fail||Super Saturday: it sounds so American, but we had it all in our own backyard – Perth, Fremantle, Mayo, Braddon and Longman. A campaign that started with all the pressure on Bill Shorten completely swung around and returned all the pressure onto...||2 8 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanByelections, A Clash Of Western Civilisation And The ABC Of Attacking The Public Broadcaster||Five federal byelections, and we think the more things change, the more they will stay the same. We suggest there will be no change in the numbers on the floor, but politics is so unpredictable in this day and age, so who knows? The Institute of...||21 6 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanA Failing Budget, Gaza Disaster And The Spectre Of An Early Election||The 2018 Budget was a classic ‘here today, gone tomorrow’ Budget. Who remembers any of the key points, aside from ‘personal tax cut’, and ‘surplus’? (** Read the fine print: tax cuts in seven years). Perhaps that was the main and only messag||27 5 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanThe Carnival And Political Circus Act Is Over. #2||A second week for the citizenship drama means the Turnbull government is dying a death by a thousand cuts, and losing MPs on a daily basis. It's torture and painful to watch. To make matters worse, the Uluru Statement was tossed away on the quiet. Why..||7 11 2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanThe Political Week From Hell. #1||Has a government ever had a worse week in Australian political history? A broken NBN, a flawed energy policy, a stuffed-up union stitch up, and the loss of two Senators and a Deputy Prime Minister. It does not get any worse than this. We discuss the...||30 10 2017||Free||View in iTunes|
A solid addition to my podcast library. Thank you.
My only suggestion is I’d like to hear a woman’s voice contributing to the conversation.
