The ALP has put a timeframe on Indigenous constitutional recognition.
Turnbull’s recent attack on Shorten is symptomatic of desperation.
Election 2016 was a study in two distinct approaches to campaigning; where one leader spoke to the individual and the other to the many. Now that the new Government has been sworn in, what can the campaign style of the major parties tell us about how the 45th Parliament will play out?
Senator Sam Dastyari says he'll push for it in next parliament.
If Turnbull turned up to give a Labor speech, or Shorten to a Liberal function, I am not convinced the audience or the press would notice. They are both saying the same thing and trying to convince us that their way is the best way. But unfortunately, there is only one way being presented.
Labor defiant, confident as election campaign nears end.
It's most likely our leaders are afraid of a mis-step, and that's certainly a risk. Social media accounts give election candidates unparalleled visibility. And that isn't always a good thing.
Malcolm Turnbull said Shorten's comments are 'disappointing'.
'Australia cannot be an innovation nation while ripping the heart out of CSIRO.'
