Whilst a television was not one of the perks of an Aboriginal stockman’s life in the Northern Territory in 1966, the story of Vincent Lingiari and […]

Three #auspol independents outside the seat of Warringah: @mattdasilva comments after #WentworthVotes

Grassroots activism is reshaping the House of Representatives as Australian communities discover a talent for winning elections in notionally conservative seats. But the candidate must suit the electorate. Independent Cathy McGowan won the seat of Indi, in rural Victoria, in 2013 taking it away from the Liberal Party’s Sophie Mirabella.
