The Guardian, Friday 22 February 2019

https://www.theguardian.com/au

I am very glad that this independent newspaper, The Guardian, is still around. Just by looking at the headlines I am satisfied they report on all the inportant issues in Australia. There is a lot going on in politics here in Australia right now. Maybe you want to check ot a few things by going to the above link!

I find it interesting for instance that Catherine Murphy says that Julie Bishop had a career playing second fiddle to men. Well, she did go far, didn’t she, but not quite to the top. So far we have not had yet a female Liberal Prime Minister. In the Liberal Party the struggle for the top job is enormous. Prime Ministers change frequently. But it is not much better in the Labor Party.

These items on the front page I find also interesting: An article about bank victims, about health expenses on Manus Island, about the company Helloworld and about coal bans by the Chinese.

  1. Hi Carolyn, you might like to check out this:

    “I will leave this place positive about the future, proud of the service that I have been able to give to my electorate of Curtin, my beloved Liberal party, the state of Western Australia, and my country’, former foreign minister Julie Bishop said as she announced she will quit federal politics. Bishop has held the Perth seat of Curtin since 1998 and was Australia’s first female foreign minister. She was also the first woman to contest the leadership of the Liberal party. The prime minister, Scott Morrison, led tributes in parliament but Bishop had already departed the chamber. ‘She is an incredibly classy individual’, Morrison said, as he thanked her for her ‘tremendous service’. Opposition leader Bill Shorten hailed Bishop as a ‘trail-blazer’ who showed a ‘steely-determination’ in international forums.”

    The items on the front page of The Guardian have changed by now.
