Promotion… Michaelia Cash has been named as a possible new minister in Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s cabinet.
So what is happening down under?
“Leadership changes are never easy”.
“This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to have a Prime Minister that’s passionate about technology but also literate”, he told Fairfax.
“The NFF, therefore, can not support the proposed Amendment to remove (section) 487 from the EPBC Act due to the risk of denying farming groups and individual farmers the right to appeal against government decisions that they believe are going to adversely affect farming communities or individual operations”. And the leadership this time round is a far better gig.
One of the most striking findings of my research is that national leadership challenges are becoming more common.
When Kevin Rudd was sworn in as Prime Minister after he led the Labor Party to election victory in 2007, the S&P/ASX 200 index jumped 2.2%.
This may be because factions (organized intra-party groupings) are more important than they used to be.
But consumers are also likely to enjoy the “Turnbull Effect”. Scholars, such as Francoise Boucek, argue that factions can be a positive force, institutionalizing different opinions and hence stabilizing the party.
Granted, this particular staffer is neither a Turnbull fan nor supporter.
But it’s not just Australia.
This is politics, where deals are done and compromises are made all the time.
Proposed copyright and website blocking legislation has also been on the agenda for Internet Australia, and Laurie Patton has just put the society’s submission to the Senate Standing Committees on Legal and Constitutional Affairs inquiry into the Copyright Amendment (Online Infringement) Bill 2015. William Cross shows that the average tenure of a party leader in Canada has declined during this period from 12 years to three years. Instead, he said he will stick with Mr Abbott’s more conservative positions and will await the new Cabinet before considering changes. He hasn’t overturned the government’s position on same sex marriage or climate change, and he signed a coalition agreement with the Nationals, in which he was required to make some promises to them to maintain their party platform.

“Whereas we’ve had the former PM raise doubts about the contribution of technology to the economy, [Turnbull] sees it as a significant contributor to the productivity of the nation”.
The eduction minister confirmed on Friday that Mr Abbott had his support the day before the spill which resulted in him losing the prime ministership.
After Abbott was brought down, Hadley had a big rant, including a spray about Morrison, referring to his comments.
A WEEK of speculation will come to an end on Sunday afternoon when Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull names his new ministry.
During question time in parliament on Wednesday, the new man in charge was accused of “mansplaining” by Labor deputy leader Tanya Plibersek.
Nick Economou, a Monash University political scientist, suspects that Turnbull has learned from his failure as party leader that he can not afford to alienate colleagues again. Regime change took barely five hours. This is very different from the recent British Labour leadership election that elected Jeremy Corbyn, which took over four months to organize.
