Surplus to climate requirements

Is Coronavirus about to put an end to the Government promised Budget surplus? Has Labor scored an own goal by announcing its climate policy without saying how it'll work? And if that's not enough, the sports funding controversy is never far away. Fran and PK are joined this week by the ABC's political editor Andrew Probyn.

BONUS EPISODE: Why was Whitlam really sacked?

That's a really good question!

On The Party Room this week, Fran and PK wonder what the Government is up to on climate change. A possible new climate policy has been reported in the papers, but the PM is refusing to say if it's actually a thing. Sydney Morning Herald political and international editor Peter Hartcher joins them to offer his two cents on how he reckons China has played Australia on Coronavirus. And why do politicians always say "that's a really good question"? Are they just being polite or is there another reason?

Guerrilla warfare in the midst

Guerrilla warfare has broken out in the Nationals' party room. On Monday, Llew O'Brien quit the LNP and defected to the Liberals. Then in a surprise and embarrassing twist for the Government, he was elected as Parliament's Deputy Speaker with Labor's help. And it's not over for the Nats, with talk of another leadership spill. 7.30's Chief Political Correspondent Laura Tingle joins The Party Room podcast this week.

Nationals tears over climate fears

The year's first week of Parliament has not been as expected. With Tuesday set aside for tributes and condolence motions for those who have lost their lives in the bushfires, the Nationals had a leadership spill. It may have been Bridget McKenzie's resignation over the sports rorts saga which prompted the vote, but it's laid bare "the climate wars" within the Nats and Coalition more broadly. Political Editor for the Australian Financial Review Phil Coorey joins Fran and PK in The Party Room.
