Quality Australian political writing is thin on the ground this time of year, but not missing altogether. Here’s a few pieces to get you thinking over the weekend.

No Crap App: w/b 16 Apr 2012

The week that was….

Three weeks into the five week break before Parliament resumes, the media swarmed yet again to the story that required the least effort. Some called Hockey’s ‘entitlement’ speech refreshing and encouraging, others called it ‘courageous’ and an unnecessary distraction. Meanwhile, blogger Matt Cowgill’s post showed that big cuts can only be made from safety net welfare payments.

Amongst the quality pieces on the Greens, there are some insightful posts from bloggers with connections to the party.

By the weekend, many writers had turned their eye to the economy and the Government. GrogsGamut’s regular Wednesday post explained how government debt and interest rates have no connection.

There was also an excellent longer read from Mark Latham explaining why suburbanites are climate change deniers.
