Episode 006: Density, Parking and the future of Philadelphia neighborhoods

phila-state.com — It's not something that jumps to forefront of your mind when you think of Real Estate but the politics and policies of density in Philadelphia are probably the largest factors effecting quality of life and affordability in our ever changing city.

The honeymoon is over

m.switzer.com.au — By David Speers The honeymoon is officially over. The polls may well continue to smile on Malcolm Turnbull for a while, but this week we saw a solid streak of the "old politics" the new Prime Minister was supposed to be leaving behind. He has been damaged as a result.

Thanks for all the lovely feedback re Walkleys & congrats to all winners. Meanwhile, my thoughts on the week: m.switzer.com.au/the-experts/da…

David Speers spot on. The bigger problem for PM Turnbull re Brough saga is that it stains him with the old politics: latika.me/1XDHr4R

Malcolm goes nuclear

switzer.com.au — By David Speers Sir Humphrey might have called it a "courageous" suggestion. Determined to show everything is indeed on the table, the Prime Minister this week floated the idea of Australia storing nuclear waste. Not merely waste from the Lucas Heights scientific reactor, or indeed waste from a hypothetical Australian nuclear power industry down the track.

No place for old politics in the new world order

m.switzer.com.au — By David Speers Labor's half-baked and ultimately unsuccessful attack on Malcolm Turnbull's Cayman Island investments this week revealed much about the opposition's inability to land a glove on the Prime Minister a month after he was sworn in. It was also so old politics.

A game-changing week on Syria

switzer.com.au — By David Speers Would Australia have joined air strikes in Syria three weeks ago had we known how much more dangerous this already diabolically complicated warzone was about to become? It's a question the new Prime Minister may well be pondering after Russia entered the fray this week.

Killing season closes in

m.switzer.com.au — By David Speers This was no ordinary party room meeting. At the end of the week, Coalition MPs are still picking over that marathon gay marriage debate and trying to work out what it all means for the competing rivalries for power and influence in the Abbott Government.

A free vote is the only option on gay marriage

m.switzer.com.au — By David Speers The same sex marriage debate has been simmering for a long time, but after Sky News this week revealed a cross-party push to bring on a vote in the spring session of parliament, tensions escalated quickly. Liberal conservatives came out all guns blazing, led by no less than the Government's Senate leader Eric Abetz.

Make or break time for Bill

m.switzer.com.au — By David Speers I remember listening to Bill Shorten's interview with Neil Mitchell back on June 21, 2013. At the time we were all focused on Bill Shorten. A bunch of Labor heavy hitters had already drifted to Kevin Rudd. If Bill finally moved away from Julia Gillard, it was all over.

All’s not fair in love, war, politics or sport

m.switzer.com.au — By David Speers It was another depressing week on the domestic political front. Joe Hockey again demonstrated his lack of political finesse with his blunder on the Sydney housing market. While Bill Shorten pretended his union past wasn't a problem amid growing questions about how he ran the Australian Workers Union WU in Victoria.

In election gear but no election this year

m.switzer.com.au — Let's clear one thing up. There will be no election this year. There is no mood for a 2015 election within senior ranks of the Liberal Party. Despite a strong reception for last week's Budget, the plan is still to run a full term and continue on the path to recovery.
