The US-China trade war is about to enter the end-game. And the outcome will determine whether the US, Europe and Australia go into recession next year.

It seems Morrison and Frydenberg think there’s no big problem with the economy. But the Governor of the Reserve Bank seems not to have got the government’s memo. More signs of growing economic complacency from the government as global storm clouds gather.

Murdoch as predictable as night follows day. On Saturday I attack Murdoch as a cancer on democracy, stating their MO is to delegitimise anybody who dares challenge them. Next day they do precisely that through Murdoch’s Sunday Mail editor @KelvinHealey . Tell Healey what you think

Stunningly good win for Australia in the Ashes. And a stunningly good series for the game itself.

To all the good people of the Sunshine Coast, be safe in the midst of this disaster. Follow all the communications and directions from the emergency services authorities. No heroics. Fires are totally unforgiving.

Vaping should be banned now. Anything promoted by Big Tobacco is bound to be: a) profitable for them, and b) lethal for people.

Dutton was an MP for 7 years and was 38 when he boycotted the apology to first Australians. A grown man, experienced politician who knew what he was doing - sending a dog-whistle to racist sentiment. A question of character.For this reason alone, he should never be Prime Minister

Just went for a coffee in middle of Sydney. Greeted by 100s of screaming school girls. Except I found out it wasn't for me :( #onedirection 

Bob Hawke is a giant of Australian politics. He and Paul Keating internationalised the Australian economy. He established APEC and radically deepened Australia’s engagement with Asia. He established Medicare. Together with Therese and the entire nation, I mourn his passing.

So many warnings to Turnbull about what the postal vote cld unleash. Now my godson Sean has been punched standing up for #MarriageEquality

I've just sat down to watch the test. That was one of the worst cricket umpiring decisions I have ever seen. KRudd
