No Crap App: w/b 24 Sep 2012

Rowe, AFR 26 Sept 2012

The week that was…

Normally I wouldn’t give much exposure to the latest leadership speculation stories, arising as they seem to do regularly in the days leading up to the latest Newspoll. But Tanner’s intervention this week was notable not only for its timing but also for the issues that he raises. Not that he proffered any solutions.

I’ve also included some good analysis pieces following the past parliamentary fortnight, and pieces by Tingle and Jericho to remind us about the importance of the economy in all things political. There’s also a link to the AFR Magazine’s annual Power List (which as far as I can tell is outside the paywall.

No Crap App: w/b 14 May 2012

The week that was…

It’s been hard to avoid salacious stories on the Slipper/Thomson sagas this week, but I’ve included a couple of the more thoughtful pieces. The one from Mark Latham on human frailty is a must read. Likewise Tony Wright’s reminiscences about the good ole days. Otherwise there are some great pieces on the budget, the future role of unions and Kelty’s speech at the ACTU Congress.

Lenore Taylor, George Mega and Andrew Probyn look more closely at the Opposition, former ALP apparatchik and Senator Stephen Loosely writes on the media storm that pollies now have to contend with, while John Warhust reminds us what the polls are really saying.

And if you haven’t seen it yet, the 730 interview with Ken Henry is over on the Longer Reads page.

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.
