International property news

Netanyahu had a most successful visit to Australia spruiking property investment opportunities on the West Bank.

Labor policy development

The Labor Party is increasingly in favour of a two-state solution which will facilitate Palestine’s pursuit of a one-state solution.

The power of disruption

Uber has disrupted the taxi business, Airbnb has disrupted the accommodation business and Trump has disrupted politics. The difference with Trump however is that it’s taking much longer to discern any benefits.

Possible changes to MPs’ terms of employment

There is growing interest in a proposal to employ MPs on a part-time basis. It’s  most unlikely that their output could possibly contract any further and furthermore it would save billions in pay although comprehensive controls would have to be introduced to ensure a concomitant reduction in travel expenses.

Post PM syndrome

It is a fascinating phenomenon that people like Julia and Tony sound much more like a PM after they’ve been kicked out of the gig rather than when they were in it. If you didn’t know it was Tony talking about the state of things last week you’d swear it was somebody who would make a half-decent PM.
