Reforming Senate Voting

16 Mar 2016

I have resisted directly contesting some of the weirder assertions about this bill floating around online. This debate is complex enough so I have not tried to rebut some of these things in 140 characters-apologies if you have approached me directly in the last couple of weeks and not got a proper reply. I am going to try to set out my reasoning here now.

Digital Radio and Community Broadcasting

23 Feb 2016

The Australian Greens support the Broadcasting Legislation Amendment (Digital Radio) Bill 2015 for much the same reasons that Senator Gallagher has just outlined. In fact, the Greens had agreed to let this bill go through in non-contro so it is interesting to see at sneaking into government business. Nonetheless, it is a sensible bill. It is housekeeping but it does underline the importance of digital radio broadcasts in the Australian market.

While the Liberals Fight Negative Gearing Reform, 44000 young Australians are Homeless

23 Feb 2016

Last night it was reported that there are children as young as two weeks old sleeping rough on Perth's city streets and there are more than 200,000 people on the social housing waiting list.
