Sep 14 2017 - North Korea

This is another dangerous, reckless, criminal act by the North Korean regime, threatening the stability of the region and the world and we condemn it, utterly. This is a sign, I believe, of their frustration at the increased sanctions on North Korea, recently imposed by the Security Council. It's a sign that the sanctions are

It is called global warming for a reason. A tonne of CO2 that goes into the atmosphere has the same impact on the world's temperature, regardless of where it comes from – whether it is emitted in Australia, Europe, China or the United States. So an effective global response is vital. Climate change is a global problem. The planet is warming because of the growing level of greenhouse gas emissions from human activity. If this trend continues then truly catastrophic consequences will ensue, from rising sea levels to reduced water availability to more heatwaves and

The airport will be a major catalyst for jobs and economic growth in western Sydney, injecting more than $1.9bn into the economy during the construction phase alone. It is expected to deliver 9,000 new jobs to western Sydney by the early 2030s, and 60,000 in the long-term. It is a vitally important project for western Sydney, for Sydney, and the nation, which is why the Coalition government ended decades of indecision by committing to the project in

At a time when we need billions in new investment to create more gas supply, any intervention which creates sovereign risk is alarming. This is not saying that all gas prices will be halved as a result of these changes. Wholesale gas, for example, if you're a household, a family, the wholesale price of gas is between 15 and 20% of the cost on your gas bill because the gas company has to get the gas to you. They will be required to outline how they will fill the shortfall of domestic gas as part of their overall production and

If we believe that respect for women and children and saying no to an Australian value, and it is, then why should that not be made a key part, a fundamental part, a very prominent part, of our process to be an Australian citizen?
