The week that was…

The main political events this week had a common underlying theme: craven politics barely hidden behind a tattered moral veil. Whether it was the Slipper/ Ashby saga (no links provided), asylum seekers or the future of Fairfax, those who made the loudest claims to integrity were often the ones most blatantly pursuing political ends.

The links provided this week on asylum seekers cover a broad range of considered pieces exploring the dilemma, while other links explore why Fairfax matters, the tricky concept called public interest, and a media owner’s right to set editorial policy.

Finally, there’s a preview from George Megalogenis on the carbon price, which comes into force on Sunday.

The week that was….

It was Budget week, the political fallout from which is becoming known as the various post-Budget polls are published. The media devoted forests of column inches and Kilowatts of electrons to Budget reportage, analysis and opinion. I’ve collected here links to the best pieces immeditately after the budget and also from the end-of-week analysis.

Also listed are some interesting pieces from Antony Green and Mumble on the permutations of various impending elections. And an excellent piece from Jonathan Green about the changed nature of political debate.
