One Month After Australia's Un-Losable Election: Dissecting What Happened

"It's been a month since the federal election and the live apart. And the commentaries they remained in a state of disbelief and despair. This was, we will told the unlivable election. So just how did the pundits get my so badly? Roan is it fair to just blind? The polls will the coalition scare campaign as if scape campaigns never happened in politics. What do you think was this election reminder that many commentators, especially in the camera? Chris gallery. They really do. Leave in a bubble. Well, one veteran columnist consistently believed that the coalition had a pathway to victory and he's my guest today. Jared Henderson, now you've no doubt seen him as a regular guest on the inside, as you can read these call them every Saturday in the Weekend Australian, and he publishes a Wally read blog called media watch dog. Now, jeff. Rod is one of the leading historians of the liberal party. He's books include Menzies child, liberal party of Australia and Santa Maria. A most unusual man as published by immu p the Papp's Jared's. Mine work is executive director of the Sydney institute. Jared, it's great to have you on between the lines. Thanks for the invitation to them. Now, what are the punditry get the election so badly? Wrong, what I think you've got to look at brief contemporary history here. We know that the polls go to wrong with Trump's victory. The polls got it wrong with bricks and the penetration Australia should have been aware that Paul's aunt, who is reliable. But in a in a sense, I think must of the commentators in most of the journalist wanted the coalition defeated, and there was a sort of projection onto the electric of their own views. They didn't believe that the coalition was worthy of government. They didn't believe modem timbale should have been overthrown. They wanted the. Coalition replaced, and I think they projected onto the electric debuts day held without checking out what the views the electric hill, and I think biolog-, many of them are out of touch some common title is on the lift such as professor Judith Brit, from Latrobe university shoot. She took to the cover story in the monthly magazine leading up to the my I election. And she said that this was the headline laced self interest groups, the liberal party has little lift, but appeals to the hypocrisy on her lawn was that the liberals must be hoping that enough of it supporters. These are woods hours, morally bankrupt as it has become happy to try the planets, and they children's future for pocketful of Silva. Judas breath is very often wrong on these matters. It's twenty five years ago. She predicted the end of the liberal party that didn't work out too well, and then I saw her piece in the monthly, but it's rather superficial. Peace and innocent Sasol fractious pace because what she's saying is that Australian shouldn't be primarily consumer their economic interests. Now, I always sought before the campaign during the campaign that essentially Australians would those on their economic interest, because that was the only thing that can really determine about others thought that they should vote on perceptions of climate change who perceptions about the liberal party. But that's not how have worked in the past and, and make sense. If, if you'll someone on on modest to listen, modest means you're gonna look look after self. And, and I think it's wise that you do that. It's not simply self. It's also you family. I think there was a tendency of many of the commentariat heated look down on other astray ins they thought privately I thought they wouldn't express it they thought they went as. Well educated today with I wanted us in a sense that as morals with wanting, the real big issues. I mean in, in a meeting, I did very few discussions before the vixen vetted, one, one business Madiun, David Maron, Jennifer Hewett, and David Meyer. Showed me, the whole election was going to be decided on climate change and suggested David that he might drive out to the suburbs. So into some of the regional towns to find out what people really talking about about. He didn't do this and I didn't finish to the MAs of the will that they, they are get out clause now is that, well that would just following the polls and the polls consistently said that the coalition would not win the election and raises the question. And we saw the same phenomenon happen both with Brexit and Trump. And we've talked about the shy Trump factor that people feed and meeting, I'd vote for the Republican nomination, because he was socially unacceptable during the twenty sixteen Brexit referendum Paul's pointed to remind. Find victory millions of. Scheib residencies unite crypt into the Pauling booze. I voted leave you'll saying the same phenomenon heath. Well, we are saying the same here, but there's another factor. It's wrong to blame the Pels in in this insulin, usually, the Pels arrived, this time, the weren't right? But in any event, the magin was fifty one and a half to forty eight and a half. And that's still within the magic mirror. So very unwise for any journalist to say, well, look, the coalition's behind by that, much, of course, look at ninety ninety three when Paul Keating won a come from behind election victory Johnson. That was a classic wasn't it. Well, it was in 'cause pull ditties victory speech out in the western suburbs. And he come into the second eleven of journalists being sent. All the I live in was hanging around waiting for Joan his victory speech, which he, which he never delivered. So in a column, I did the Australian before in the period of the election said, Labour's, he went from a position on three occasions, not seventy two with Gulf with him. He was not a popular figure, but a huge figure then with Bob Hawke, who was both very popular figure, and a huge figure. And with Kevin rod who wasn't a huge figure, but a very popular figure. Now, when you look at it that way, Bill, shorten wasn't at that level. And then there was this fixation among sections of the press. Go raise it, the review among sections, the prescription some other commentators, that's okay for the liberal party to have a later who might win provided his name, Malcolm Turnbull, preps. Julie bishop. They didn't believe that the term should have been replaced, and therefore, they didn't believe that Morrison could win because they predicted they've you of turn belong to the electorate. But the electric didn't have that view of timber all guest is Jared Hinson is a columnist with the. Australia now on election, not the vanquish Tony Abbott. He talked about a political realignment in this country. Let's heave from the former prime minister. There is something of a rail lineman poets going on rolling around this country.

Explainer 166: Was Australias shock election result really that shocking?

"The results of the federal election held in a stray Lee. This past weekend was one delighted the country's bookmakers except the one betting firm regarded the thing as such a foregone conclusion that they paid out on victory by the opposition labor party before vote was counted. Believed in miracles. And tonight we've been delivered in the what. Not for the first time in recent memory, the electorate of a western democracy declining to do as pundits and posters. Had confidently predicted a stray Lia returned to office, the conservative liberal national party coalition, led by incumbent prime minister Scott Morrison, despite more than three years of polling showing a consistent lead for the labor party led by Bill shorten. I, I. And we'll wanting to hold out of the also, it's obviously not all of them. It is, perhaps, tempting four to cast Morrison's, unlikely victory as yet, another populace tantrum thrown by these spoilt, people of a wealthy and orderly nation comparable with the Brexit vote of two thousand sixteen the election of Donald Trump the same year and the handing the reins of power in several European countries and regions to sorted varieties of cowboy. But this is not that the result of the two thousand nineteen Australian federal election is instead, something of a political paradox, being both surprising and predictable. It is surprising inasmuch as nobody expected it, at least not this time, but predictable in the sense that it is the nineteenth occasions since the end of World War, Two on which ustralia has elected, the liberal party and its conservative coalition partners, far from being another furious, incoherent tipping over of the tables, this may have been a rare vote for steady as she goes business as usual looked at like that. When contemplating the global context, it might even be vaguely reassuring. Which brings us to the question of what kind of prime minister Scott Morrison will be not before Saturday question that many thought even worth asking Morrison became prime minister in a party room coup only last August, and it was widely suspected that he was destined to be remembered if at all, only by these setters of pub, quizzes seeking to start arguments among competing teams over the identity of strenuous, twenty fifth florist serving prime minister. Instead Morrison finds himself with a full three year term ahead of him and every chance of being the first Austrailia and prime minister to complete one for more than a decade. This is not just due to the against the odds victory Morrison one at the weekend. But the manner of it Morrison whose pre politics background walls in marketing substantially sidelined, the rest of his front bench and may Delek Shen all about him hoping that he's slightly labored, persona of an awkward Ernest suburban dad would connect of let a few things about the prime minister of the last couple of days of whipped up on this visit that we've both chosen well, in terms of MRs body Miranda, and gin you, and I, maybe punching a bit above are white, but nevertheless, that the tactic worked is self evident, but Morrison will not necessarily find the going easy from here, though his win on Saturday was remarkable. It was also close and on a few key issues. Morrison is comfortably in minority among his fellow Australians. He is a Pentecostal Christian and instinctive social conservative. Not a common outlook in a largely secular and increasingly small l liberal country and Morrison is if not an outright climate change skeptic, then a climate change equivocated who now finds himself leading a people who consistently list the environment among the most pressing concerns. This seems to have been one of the reasons though the list of possibilities on this front is not short. Why the voters of were ringer, a hitherto, solid liberal seat on the proverbially, prosperous, north shore of Sydney dumped their long-serving MP, and former liberal, prime minister and big weirdo, Tony Abbott. It doesn't hurt to lose, but sided I'd rather be a loser and quit. Perhaps more interesting question than how the liberal party and Scott Morrison won this election is the one asking how the labor party and Bill shorten lost the supposedly on lose -able. They may have been an answer. In the notably bipartisan national mourning prompted by the death a couple of days before polls opened of Bob Hawke, one of shortens predescessors, as leader of the labour party and prime minister of stray Leah from nineteen eighty three to nineteen ninety one this government, Mr Speaker has the resources that talent and the skill maj, this dramatic vices better, and stronger, and even more prepared to put the interest of the ordinary threat in the country. Was by any measure, a substantial prime minister, but he was also a supreme political communicator, who understood the country needs to see something potential leader of what it is, or what it wishes to become in a stray Lia the liberal party traditionally offers the status quo labor. The vision Bill shorten in the estimate of a majority of the stray Leah's voters offered, neither his successor as leader of the labour party has both need and an opportunity to think big.

"This is the briefing on, Monaco, twenty four coming up tonight is not about me. It's not a bath. Even the liberal party tonight is about every single Australian who depends on the government to put them. Australia's prime minister clings to power against all expectations. We'll ask how Scott Morrison managed to pull it off. Also ahead, the UK's government is attempting to pass its beleaguered Briggs at deal for a full time, but has any of the detail in it, actually changed. Plus, the latest on a corruption scandal that has enveloped Austria's government and will have a Eurasian bonanza to all that ahead on the briefing live from London. Luster Elliot's conservative coalition as clung to power following a shock election victory at the weekend, Scott Morrison's, liberal party began Saturday night as the underdog with polls, pointing to a labour majority. But by the evenings end Morrison was declaring a miracle as the opposition leader Bill shorten offered his resignation. Let's get more on this. Now with John Huston who led astray lease liberal party between nineteen ninety and nineteen ninety four join the prime minister called his victory a miracle we use surprised by Saturday's result. Well, according to the polls, it wasn't Mary Coolum in the polls actually hitting the numbers, right? To forty eight that the wrong way round. They had toddy winning in the loopholes coming distinct second, and it turned out to be exactly the other way round. So that puts polling into question. But in those two were certainly miracle I don't think the expectation in the government was that they could win although.

The said you know, your voice your vote is on them for me or for Bill show very, very you get Levi for short, you get short shortens always made unpopular in polling negative net satisfaction writing and the government said that he was really focused on that to hold him accountable for what you draw wanted wanted to draw and do and on the back of that. They're in a series of scare campaigns about the tie to retirees income and negative gearing on residential properties and so on which resonated, really in key elements of the electric, it was interesting to hear Scott Morrison's wording, they're really pointing to himself as the central thing to vote for, if you're going to vote for the liberal national coalition because he was, of course, put into the role after our sting, Malcolm Turnbull, the prevail. Ailing wisdom seemed to be that the liberal party simply wouldn't recover from the messy removal of Turnbull. But of course, if we look back in history, we know that Julia Gillard managed to survive her first election after Alston, Kevin Rudd tumble, one in twenty-six off to ousting, Abbott as well, and now Morrison's victory, could it be that voters, simply don't care about leadership spills, the way that we might assume? Well known earlier occasions where the spills were an issue in violations and state elections, certainly the times, the electrodes taken the baseball that to them, but it didn't carry through to this election. I think I looked at Morrison only on his merits. And as you said, he just ran a campaign boy, himself, essentially a number of the senior members of the government had retired and he didn't use to many of the others, the, the reminding members of the government, he basically ran the campaign himself everyday, and just focused on might at a contest between himself and Bill, shorten and then try to risings Audie and concern and fear.

Well, that's more or less been the case since the mid nineties when both labor and the coalition champion what's called the economic reform agenda, or as some of the critics deride the neoliberal consensus deregulation privatize -ation tariff cuts tax cuts leban- microphone all that. Well, my guess says those days are over the may eighteen election. He says could represent an audio logical shift in Australian politics, and that's a good thing. To teams palmesano is professor of practice at the university of Sydney, he's a former rice discrimination Commissioner he's worked as a library vase, and is the author of book called on height. Published by 'em UP, get item welcome to between the lines on now. In your recent Sydney Morning Herald column. Mm USA just quote out political Nassim of monitor Frances that could be coming to an end house. Oh, we're saying perhaps the most ideologically significant election for quite some time here. And it's because we have the lay the pioneer Bill shorten offering a forthright progressive social democratic platform. It hasn't gone about presenting itself as a small target in this election. It's put a quality registered bution back on the Genda. You say this in the fact that it's pushed for capital gains tax reform, negative, gearing reform pushed for higher wages, the childcare policy announcement during this election is another example. So what you're seeing here in some is a muscular rejection of market liberalism assigned that the state is back at least on the lie beside and that you'll you'll saying challenge to the idea that a marketing. Clemmie must also mean a market society. So long gone are the days when you had a lie bellator running for office. Kevin rod describing the stalling himself as an economic conservative precisely and that has been the template in many respects full libero position. Now who's reflect the thinking of a lot of people in the community just how has the power of market liberalism. How is that filed? Let's just look survey at from the global perspective with still saying the effects of the global financial crisis with seeing here. What is a transitional transformation from stable managed capitalism to speculative financial capitalism. And the legacy of this committee described as follows when not saying global growth in in any significant way, you might even say the global economy is in naming with saying ultra-low interest rates with seeing quantitative easing by many central banks, huge jumps in public indebtedness. Also significant increases in inequality and on top of that when not necessarily saying the market operate in the perfectly competitive foam that you would expect of market liberalism, think of the concentration of market power in the new digital Konami the enormous size and influence of organization such as. Google or Facebook, or Amazon, I think these are all signs that market liberalism is not working the way that and that exit Bill shorten is championing this notion of famous, but is income inequality really Rausing in this country. I'll turn to a productivity commission report last g got the quotes. He it found that sustained growth has delivered significantly improved living standards full the average Australian in every income group that the economic mobility is high and quote movements in inequality indexes a slot rather than series in other words, Australia. According to productivity commission is not locked US where we have seen real income inequality Nora, we lock Europe where growth has stagnated for decades. How would you respond to the productivity commission all the productivity commission report still acknowledges that income? Inequality has risen of the past three decades. It's suggest. And here is that they may be a question about the degree to which income inequality has risen. But also, the productivity commission is also clear that when you look at the ends of the distribution on income, it's become in their woods stickier. So you seeing less mobility in some pockets of distribution, and as they put it stickiness is indicative, some entrenched inequality. So thought wholesale repudiation of the rising inequality in some of this is also that up in methodology. So the methodology that the productivity commission us was to look at surveys conducted as part of the Hilda exercise, the household income and labour dynamics in Austria study that is very well regarded, but if you look at other methods of measuring inequality, for example, looking at national accounts, dotterel taxation statistics drawing on the methodology that people Thomas Pickety have developed measuring income inequality. Then does appear that income inequalities at historically high levels going back to nineteen forties or the mid twentieth century. We've not had income inequality at such levels in it straight. And that's based on research done by Andrew Lee. Mentioned Thomas Pickety who Thomas Pickety fringe economists? I think climbed to find on this issue of inequality, but opportune to people have been on this show over the last few Yee's team. Keisha Mahbubani from Singapore. Johan Norberg from Sweden Steven pinker from Harvard met really from London victim Putin in Melvin and nisi that market liberalism, including free. Tried has delivered the single greatest reduction in extreme poverty in human history effect, isn't it? Yes, it is. And imagine if the distribution will equal even see more people having been liberated from poverty or enjoying a rise out of hardship. There's no question about the absolute gains that come from market, liberalism and not rejecting the idea of market economy. We know that the market distributes resources in a much more efficient way than a centrally planned economy does. This is the lesson of the twentieth century in the listen of the failure of of communism. The point here is about whether we want to be a market society is will that we have the logic of the market being applied to conduct government and to add relations between between people see Mahbubani, nog- and Pinkett, they'd respond inside that government policies lie policies, if you like to force inequality down that would incur a cost in lower economic growth, and that would argue low living standards, not just in Australia, but across the world. Well, that would argue that and it's an it's an idea that I believe should be contested. I'm not arguing for a perfect equal distribution of resources. But if we believe, for example, when the idea of Aaquil opportunity, I believe you need to have some redistribution of resources for that to become realizable. No question that socialism is having some sort of resurgence. And you mentioned that in your recent Sydney Morning Herald article, certainly if you look in the United States, you see Bernie Sanders doing very well, politically, Jeremy Corbyn later of the party, and there have been plenty of polls. And we've had guests on this program talking about how socialism is becoming very popular, especially among millennials. Now, you say, quote, what those on the right to cry as the evils of socialism, a good number of us regard as decent common sense. But what about the terrible atrocities committed in the name of socialism in the twentieth century team. What about the? Abject failure of socialism everywhere has been implemented. Let's not get too blunt Tomei to when when when our third to run I refer to those on the right decrying was socially. I was referring specifically to the education minister Dantin criticising. The labour party's announcement recently on childcare policy as an example of socialism, if not communist or words that affects and I think that's a bit of blown somewhat exaggerated when I'm talking about social democracy. I'm talking about an ideology that still exists within the limits of multi-party, democracy, individually Berty and the rule of law that what social democracy means is that the state has a role in regulating markets and in redistributing resources, it's about elevating the value of community and the value of quality beside the value of freedom. Young people who are attracted to socialism. They also distrust government regulations, and they mar on Pinerolo and small businesses. They're disconnected between the two. No, this is this is precisely and it will strike of the point. I'm making about a mock economy. This is a market society. Millennia was understand perfectly. Well, the power of entrepreneurialism and the benefits of of the market what they don't accept is that the market must govern everything in society. What I don't accept his that the distribution thrown up by the market is is something that is necessarily desirable in all cases. So if you look at how millennials are experiencing, the housing market and housing affordability. If you're looking at how they experiencing work and the diminishing job security that they experience all the precarious nature gig economy that many of them are engaged in their frankly, not saying the benefits of of market liberalism market. But you tackling dance. You can't tax a loss. You can only tax prophet and

It was a long speech with hard promises.

I've addressed this academy on previous occasions and for the five years of science Mitch parliament, I've appreciated the opportunity to meet so many of you in so many of the younger scientists and post doc researches to benefit from your expertise and to help informed about the design of the best possible policies for the nation.

"It is eleven minutes past twelve here in London, and we'll have a look at some of the stories making news in Australia. Today I'm joined in the studio by monocle Sydney, correspondent clearest sea bag. Montefiore Clarisa thankful popping in. Now, I think one story that's being across a lot of strategy is media over the past few days seemingly over the past using fact news pulse affecting Malcolm tumbles popularity. Malcolm Turnbull the prime minister, the one who took it away from Tonia that. So famously this is not good news for him as a absolutely not Paul. Now tumble as having a bit of a rough week or few weeks. In fact, a NewsPoll don't done by the strata newspaper, which is the Murdoch national newspaper showed that his personal ratings of fallen sharply and his lead over labour opposition leader Bill shorten had been slashed from nineteen points to just twelve points. So this is particularly look news, bad news, poll ratings of bad news for any prime minister, but this is not. Regularly troublesome full Malcolm Turnbull because of course he used a Tony Abbott's bad rating in the poll as justification full taking over as prime minister, and there was no doubt going to be some difficulty in convincing the public that he had a mandate to lead because that was always the problem that Julia Gillard had when she took over from Kevin Rudd. So this is particularly bad news for Turnbull, isn't it a? Is he still getting that same line that you shouldn't be prime minister now because you getting bad poll results? Well, I think I think the Australian public is a little bit fed up of political musical Chaz, which has happened a lot, and everyone's a little bit embarrassed about the way politics is being conducted. Tony Abbott has not held back in having a dig himself. Of course, I think one of the issues that the coalition is having right now is whether they can maintain kind energy supplies and keep power prices lower, and Tony Abbott. Sort of in a particularly scathing interview with the national broke custody? ABC's said, quote, idiocy is doing more of the same and expecting a different result. Oh, well, he's not missing his words at all. They say it's a bit of a mixed bag of results though. Because on the other side of politics Bill shorten the labour leader, it's no good news for him either. He's still not preferred prime minister despite all the bad news for tunnel. Absolutely not. I mean, Bill shorten still remarkably unpopular considering tumbles lower poll results, and it's worth pointing that the poll showed dissatisfaction with both major parties and that you know, despite tumbles performance, spite the factors nose-dived that he is still considered the better prime minister in the polls than shorten. And just before we move onto a next topic, I just wanted to point out another troubling aspect that we've been looking at in recent days and that is these. The far right in Australia is starting to gain. It seems to be starting to gain a bit of traction, and I've seen some notes here about Pauline Hanson's. One nation party has also been experiencing some gains, and that's got something to do with Turnbull's poor resort. How is that all linked? Well, I mean pulling Hanson leads one nation which is a nationalist right wing populist party accused of racism among other things, and the polls in the wake of the super Sachdeva by-elections which happened two weeks ago and the coalition failed in key campaigns in Queensland and pulling Hansson one one key seats during that campaign which is worrying is a little bit wearing a funnel queens on a bit of the Spurs. You could tell the the wild west, the wild north east, really when it comes to politics. Let's move along to some other political issues making news in Australia at the moment. That's a Great Barrier Reef scandal. I was watching some news about this on the over the past couple of days, and this is also resulting in some bad headlines full. Malcolm Turnbull. There was some four hundred forty, three million dollars. That's been granted to a foundation that some say, should've never got them..
