"Right now, we’re all on a plane, and we've realised the pilot is drunk. The election is our opportunity to get the drunk pilot out of the cockpit and hand over to one that’s flown the plane before and can get us down safely," she said.

What I am REALLY interested in is re-engineering a new kind of plane that doesn't allow drunk pilots to even get into the cockpit. One that requires a new kind of pilot, new kind of pilot training, more fuel efficient and goes longer, feels better etc. You’ll hear a lot from me on this, once #ausvotes2019 is over. Disclaimer - I’ve been a member of the Liberals, Labor, Greens, and have preferenced the Independents and minor/micro parties almost exclusively. I don’t see political colours, but I keep an eye on the actions and try to fight against the dysfunction across the political rainbow.

Charlie Caruso (@CharliCaruso) turns the tables on Margo Kingston (@margokingston1) and explores how No Fibs started, the power and role Twitter plays in the modern Australian political landscape and the contribution of citizen journalists in the elevation of profiles and the conversations around climate change.

This election is so crucial for Australia’s future — and the future of the world — we need to lead the world on climate change.

We need to clean up our democracy. It’s dirty now. It’s corrupt. We need to have a federal ICAC, we need to have donation law reform, we need to have lobbying reform — we need to clean it up.

People from all walks of life are standing up and saying “what can I do?” and to be frank, it’s pretty inspiring.
