If Malcolm Turnbull wins the ballot against Tony Abbott, and whoever else might put their hand up, he will need to redefine the Liberal constituency in order to win an election.

I don’t understand the debate about ChAFTA.
What ChAFTA does is allow Australia more access to China, after we unlitaterally extended that courtesy to China years ago.
It is about levelling the playing field for everyone which will create more jobs all around.
Yet the ALP, true to form under this regime, […] Continue Reading…

Unless the unions challenge Dyson Heydon’s ruling that he does not suffer from apprehended bias they are piling criminality on criminality.
In a statement yesterday ACTU Secretary Dave Oliver said the Trade Union Royal Commission is “terminally tarnished”.
It is a crime to try to bring a Royal Commission into disrepute. […] Continue Reading…

Canning is a marginal seat with a deceptively safe Liberal Party majority due almost solely to the former member, Don Randall. If Labor can’t win this in a byelection there is something drastically wrong with them.
Not only are the numbers their way, but the Liberal Campaign looks decidedly bone-headed […] Continue Reading…

As I understand it, the ACTU case against Royal Commissioner Dyson Heydon is not that he is biased, but that an average person might think he was biased.
Now I would have thought the only reason a royal commissioner should be stood aside is if there is a reasonable apprehension […] Continue Reading…

Australia apparently has met its greenhouse targets, but that’s not good enough for the Greens.
So I’ve done some digging to see what our performance on reducing emissions looks like, and it’s no worse than most, and better than some.
But pay special attention to the worst performing countries. They are […] Continue Reading…

By putting Zaky Mallah to air the ABC made a category mistake. They categorised an existential threat to Australia as being just an ideological disagreement.
They are not the only ones making category mistakes about terrorism and terrorist organisations, and until we sort them out our response to Islamic State, […] Continue Reading…
