In this episode of New Politics, we look at the big week in Canberra, highlighting the continuing issues that have dominated the headlines and the halls of Parliament.
Firstly, we examine the incident involving Barnaby Joyce’s public intoxication in Canberra, which reignites discussions on the standards of behaviour expected from public figures. Joyce’s actions are not just a personal failing but a reflection of broader issues within the political landscape, including double standards, substance misuse within Parliament, and the leniency often afforded to certain politicians.
We also discuss Senator Linda Reynolds’ announcement of her departure from politics at the next election, raising questions about the commitment and effectiveness of politicians who are on their way out but still hold office.
The then explore the passage of the “right to disconnect” legislation, designed to protect employees from work-related intrusions into their personal time. Despite its benefits, the opposition, led by Peter Dutton, signals a contentious political climate, with debates skewed by media portrayal and party politics. Adding to the controversy, allegations against Peter Dutton during his tenure as Home Affairs Minister are scrutinised. Accusations of misconduct involving contracts and audits raise serious concerns about accountability and oversight within government operations.
A surprising development in Parliament saw the success of a motion by independent MP Andrew Wilkie, advocating for the end of the prosecution of Julian Assange—a decision met with resistance from the Coalition, highlighting the divisive nature of political support and opposition in Australia.
Lastly, the episode covers the unexpected call for a snap election in Tasmania by Premier Jeremy Rockliff, prompted by governmental instability and pressing local issues. This move could signify a pivotal moment for the Liberal Party and for Tasmanian politics, addressing or exacerbating existing challenges in health, education, and housing.
Join us as we unpack these developments, offering insights into the ramifications for Australian politics and the ongoing debates that shape the nation’s future. #AUSPOL #assange
