Word from The Hill: More mortgage pain, Labor’s climate legislation nearly done, and Scott Morrison staying put

Michelle & Amanda 06.09.2022.

As well as her interviews with politicians and experts, Politics with Michelle Grattan includes “Word from The Hill”, where she discusses the news with members of The Conversation’s politics team.

In this podcast, Politics and Society editor Amanda Dunn and Michelle discuss Tuesday’s interest rate rise of 50 basis points – the fifth increase in a row – as well as the imminent passage of Labor’s climate legislation though the senate (with minor gestures to crossbencher David Pocock), and the industrial relations negotiations coming out of last week’s summit. They also canvass Scott Morrison flagging he’s staying in parliament for the time being – just as an Essential poll finds a narrow majority of voters want him to leave.
