Rubbing in the Albo grease

Australia's must trusted source of election news brings you fair-minded, objective and woke-free coverage of events at home and abroad.

Tim Blair, James Morrow and Nick Cater pick over the alternative Australian prime minister's so-called campaign as he struggles to tell his arse from his Albo.

Greens leader Adam Bandt delivers his economic vision for Australia, a country of wind turbines, electric cars and rainbow festivals where billionaires get fleeced and the government pays for everything.

Peter Fitzsimmons ’s plans to sack the Queen suffer another setback as Labor drops plans for a referendum to turn Australia into a republic

Elon Musk’s bid to democratiser Twitter sends the luvsters scurrying for the cancel button

And the New York Mayor Eric Adams brings back the biffo on the streets and in the subways.

This time a week ago, the smart people in the Canberra press gallery were leading us to think this federal election was a mere formality, and prime minister Scott Morrison was out for the count. They were counting of course on Anthony Albanese being fight-ready, which it’s turned out he isn’t.

Nick Cater is a columnist with The Australian. Tim Blair is Australia's longest serving blogger and James Morrow is political correspondent for Sydney's best selling newspaper The Daily Telegraph and a lone voice of sanity on Sky News Australia's The Outsiders
