College of Canberra Skilled Fellow Michelle Grattan and College of Canberra Affiliate Professor Caroline Fisher talk about the week in politics
This week they speak in regards to the new NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet – his relationship with Scott Morrison, and his steps to distinguish himself from Gladys Berejiklian, with some adjustments to the road-map out of lockdown.
In the meantime the hospital wars are again. All of the states need more cash from Canberra as they put together for reopening. Scott Morrison is resisting, insisting they’ve had loads of time and funding to prepare and focusing on Queensland specifically.
After Berejiklian’s resignation, triggered by the NSW Unbiased Fee Towards Corruption’s probity investigation into her conduct, consideration has turned to the federal authorities’s proposed integrity fee. Forward of the introduction of the laws, due quickly, debate is raging over what must be the extent of its powers.
Michelle Grattan doesn’t work for, seek the advice of, personal shares in or obtain funding from any firm or organisation that might profit from this text, and has disclosed no related affiliations past their tutorial appointment.
