War on business

  • Annabel Hepworth and David Crowe reported, “Bill Shorten has lashed out at Labor stalwart Keith DeLacy over his criticism of the opposition’s anti-business agenda, mocking the former state treasurer as a company director who wants a tax cut, as business leaders called for an end to class-war politics.”: ALP ramps up its war on business.

(May 29, 2016) Day 22 – Women in sport

Labor pledge for women

It’s rare to see women’s sport widely covered across the media. Rarer still to see it raised as an election issue. Labor has chanced its arm today by pledging funds for the national broadcaster to boost the viewing audience of women’s sport across Australia.

ABC News 24: Labor pledges to fund an extra 500 hours of women's sport if elected.

Shadowy figures

  • Gina McColl reported, “Top Liberal ministers raised more than $1 million in 2014-15 through shadowy entities with no reporting requirements, accountability to donors, codes of conduct or independent oversight, a Fairfax Media investigation has revealed.  Where the money came from is largely obscured. Only about a tenth of the $1,045,730 raised by ministers Kelly O’Dwyer and Josh Frydenberg and former ministers Andrew Robb and Kevin Andrews was contributed by disclosed donors.”: Political donations: new fears over shadowy Liberal fundraising groups.

Today’s gotcha

The media has zoomed in on Shorten’s inability to name the captains of the Hockeyroos and Southern Stars. Perhaps it highlights the need for the policy for the ABC to provide more hours of women’s sport.

In 2014, former Prime Minister Tony Abbott famously mispronounced socceroos skipper Mile Jedinak as “Mike”.

(May 28, 2016) Day 21 – Recognition and racism

Entrenched racism

  • Fergus Hunter reported, “Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Opposition Leader Bill Shorten have found a rare moment of unity on the campaign trail, agreeing that racism in Australia persists and there is more work to be done on reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. But just over an hour after the Prime Minister spoke, Finance Minister Mathias Cormann struck a different note, attacking the Opposition Leader’s “very negative” comments on entrenched racism.”: Malcolm Turnbull and Bill Shorten agree racism persists.
