The week that was…
Like clockwork, leadership speculation emerged this week just as Newspoll prepared to conduct its fortnightly audit of voter views. Most #leadershit pieces are not included here, but there are a couple to illustrate the divergence in media views.
Meanwhile, the focus was on the Melbourne by-election: there’s a link from Mumble on the numbers, and one from Elizabeth Hymphrys on the direction the Greens are taking.
By week’s end the Mega-Tingle-Grattan triumvirate delivered considered pieces on policy, while Andrew Catsaras tackled the chimera called leadership. Finally, there’s a interesting piece from Jonathan Green on the value and cost of reader engagement.
