A difficult end to a difficult year

switzer.com.au — By David Speers The past week has provided a perfect illustration of 2014 in politics: a disaster for the government on the Budget, coupled with a strong response on national security. The Prime Minister's calm and confident handling of the siege in Sydney has impressed his critics both within the government and on the Labor side.

In defence of Joe

switzer.com.au — By David Speers Some of the conversations going on in the corridors of parliament this week have been frankly ridiculous. Yes, the government is in trouble. It's made big mistakes. The suggestion from some, however, that Joe Hockey should be replaced is simply bizarre. The Treasurer is far from blame-free for the government's troubles.

The week from hell

switzer.com.au — By David Speers By any measure this was the Abbott Government's worst week in office. A week mired in a broken promise, a spectacular ministerial gaffe and the appearance, at least, of the Prime Minister being rolled on a key policy.
