The Left is revolting … and why Bill Shorten is toast

Bill Shorten--unless Malcolm Turnbull falls under one of his beloved trains--will lose this election. Soon after losing Shorten will either fall on his sword or be pushed by the Left, who have long regarded Rudd's succession rule as farcical.

109 Australian Parliamentarians speak, but will Indonesia listen?

Mr Sukumaran and Mr Chan have demonstrated genuine remorse and have become model prisoners, working constructively at Kerobokan not only on their own rehabilitation and reform, but also for that of other prisoners ... we believe it is significant that both Mr Chan and Mr Sukumaran were only apprehended as a result of the Australian Federal Police providing information to Indonesian Police.
