    Where is Australian Politics Heading?
    Lunch Session | Tue 9 October 2018

    Another day, another Prime Minister. The turbulent events of August that saw the surprise elevation of Treasurer Scott Morrison to the Australian prime ministership gave the nation its seventh PM in eleven years, five of those in the last five.  This poses a challenge for Australia’s international reputation.

    Our speaker argues that as politicians “continue to brawl over the spoils of office, the national interest risks being sidelined”. Voters are increasingly turning in despair to a ragtag of independents and minor parties, many of whom oppose free trade, foreign investment and immigration. Whatever your views, this is a timely discussion on the state of parliamentary democracy in Australia.

    As the expected May 2019 federal election inches closer, and with just five weeks of federal parliament remaining this year, where is Australian politics heading? Join leading Australian political author, journalist and communication strategist Kerry-Anne Walsh as she analyses the trends of Australian politics and the role of Pauline Hanson, leader of the anti-foreigner One Nation party – the subject of her next book.

    About our speaker:

    Kerry-Anne Walsh has been a keen observer of Australian politics for thirty years – as a senior national journalist, award-winning author and principal of her own media consultancy, KA Communications.
