Slick media strategies and strong narratives are of no help to a flailing government if its political decisions are flawed and its policies untenable. Weekly column for The Drum.
I was showing someone my blog yesterday and was mortified to realise I don’t post much any more, other than links to my columns and posts that are published elsewhere. This has made my blog a pretty boring place to visit.
Today I’ve decided to rectify this with at least a semi-regular commentary on my week (or so) in politics including published pieces and observations of the discussions that followed, particularly on Twitter.
Lambie doesn’t want to stay, doesn’t want to quit. Column for The Drum.
Abbott’s tough talking comes undone at the G20. Weekly column for The Drum.
Shorten: Do we want another Abbott? Weekly post for The Hoopla.
‘Left-splaining’ to Bishop misses the point. Weekly column for The Drum.
Palmer’s Lambie headache just became a migraine. Weekly column for The Drum.
Polls, damn polls. Weekly column for The Hoopla.
Bishop’s move. For The_Brief.
Nova Peris and our witch-hunt mentality. For The Hoopla.
