Mr SHORTEN (Maribyrnong—Leader of the Opposition) (19:31): This is a budget and a government that wants to bury its past and rewrite its history. The Liberals want Australians to forget four wasted years in which wages growth has hit record lows, unemployment is up, underemployment and casualisation are at record highs, living standards have stagnated, inequality has widened. This budget is an admission of guilt, a signed confession.

Attenborough takes eugenics to a ridiculous extreme. Hopefully it is just that he is getting doddery and heading for the exits himself.
There is a certain degree of fabrication in all news stories to make them real, but in the current environment, this editing not only makes the reporting ... unreal, but defamatory. Someone needs to be demoted. This is not acceptable. /2

Former Labor Minister and Speaker of the House John Mickel and AIP Executive Director Graham Young preview the 2020 Qld election. Queensland faces the first election for a four year term in its history in just over one month’s time. John Mickel and Graham Young have spent a lifetime watching Queensland elections as well as winning (and losing) a few. They bring theoretical and practical insights to a business which is more art than science. John is presently an academic at QUT, and Graham bases much of his analysis on his online qualitative polling which has proven to be very accurate over almost 20 years. The seminar will cover the seats and candidates to watch, as well as the strategies, tactics and issues, and how they might play out.
