The week that was…

The week started well. Some analyses of the MYEFO mini budget challenged Australia’s continued expectations of middle class welfare. Others called for an end to the surplus charade.

But political commentary descended into farce by the end of the week, with much hyperventilation over the not particularly surprising revelations in McKew’s book.

Meantime, there were some good thinky pieces on Australia’s political environment and what the 2013 election year might look like.

The week that was…

This week’s best political pieces focussed on the commencement of the carbon price (Kelly & Kitney) and fallout from last week’s asylum seeker debate (Mega, Farr and Brent).

The natural extension of the latter was further examination of the Greens. Grog provided an interesting profile on the new Greens Senator, Peter Whish-Wilson, PVO had a scoop on the ALP’s preference deals, and Katharine Murphy talked to Christine Milne.

Also included are two great longer reads: one on the nature of democracy in Australia today, and one on the future of journalism.
