"I have a fairly pragmatic approach to political lots. Are As member former stream Prime Minister Paul Keating telling me one day. In politics might not Lancaster bombers, we're not out there sort of lumbering I've the target eventually seeking to drop their ornaments. Spitfire is my we've got limited time get out there and take on the enemy get it done and get out of there. Bring lesson was we don't have much time we've got you have to accept the fact that it's a precarious profession. Kevin Rudd was Prime Minister Austrailia twice from two thousand, seven until two, thousand and ten and much more briefly in two thousand thirteen. He led the Australian Labor Party to a huge victory in the two thousand and seven general election. But was never quite as popular among certain of his own colleagues. As he was with the Australian public, he was overthrown in a party room coup by his former ally Julia Gillard who subsequently appointed him Foreign Minister Rudd Intern overthrew Gilaad shortly before the two thousand and thirteen election which labor lost. My mantra mullahs and Kevin Rudd joined me few months back prior to the descent of the covid nineteen pandemic for the big interview. Kevin Rudd Welcome to the beginning of you could be with you here in London. I. Want to start at the start because it is something this always intrigued me and I think it's a way of explaining you'll beginnings in politics to a global audience but you, of course, labor, prime minister you come up from almost archetypal country party as it used to be known background you grew up tough in rural Queensland you you're a country party family and yet as a teenager. You gravitate towards Labor what was that? I think a couple of reasons. One is I had a mom who insisted I read books. which was in the state I grew up in Queensland in the sixties and seventies was almost illegal. So I read books and I read books about politics in the world. These are the things that I stumbled across. Developed an interest in the Labor Party in an interest in China actually. The second reason was just much more direct and personal. My father died as a kid who was killed in an accident. And then the idyllic world of growing up on a farm in rural Queensland through came crashing down because in those days there was nothing called really now part of Australia a compassionate welfare state. So we're out on our own so that I think much more basic level just caused me to think why and this shouldn't happen to anybody and caused me intellectually and emotionally to gravitate to the centre-left of politics. Your entry into politics as a politician takes a few detours. You initially a diplomat with various foreign postings especially, in China, I had to learn how to Paush. which has been a particular interest. Was Politics always the plan did you think of being a diplomat as an apprenticeship for what you eventually wanted to do? The almost tense is I wanted to be a diplomat. I dreamt one day of maybe being a foreign minister which met of course into politics but I don't think I..

"Not John Kerry's. Ronchi. He sounds just like John Kerry. Put. Mitt Romney rule too. I think what we could make it a rule, but it wasn't a rule. Of this show. Talk a little slower, yeah. That'll help. Well, he's he's not wrong. Of course. K Ball Sagar Miss. This is my name for the now crystal ball and. Say. What's his name? Sammy? Sammy Hagar Sagar just safety Sagar. They had on the authors of he didn't hands exposing how the Chinese Communist Party is reshaping. The world and have a quick three clips here from that interview. I think it's enlightening as we start off with the influence on the bushes, one area in particular that I saw which was cited in axios was about influence operations here in the United States namely former President George W Bush Bush's brother. Neil Bush. Could you detail how exactly he's being influenced by the Chinese? Chinese regime. Yes, we'll neal. Bush was targeted by an organization nine of CPI. If see the Chinese People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries, which has been very active in the United States, mainly at the subnational level, targeting state governors, sister city relationships, and that kind of thing, Neal. Bush seemed to be a prominent target because business connections in China and Hong Kong and he somehow same to tycoon, CCP messaging, and of course, the started to flow into a think tank. That he was associated with and the think tank start to push up credit, badging, messaging, and Neal Bush himself would go to China or Hong Kong for P. sponsored conferences and and really come. Mouth talking points off the ACP. Kind of classic story of a Leak Capture. You know this is going on everywhere. And here's what bugs me. How come we're not getting this treatment? How come no one is approached us. We'd be perfect perfect to show for the Chinese lead. Be Everything but perfect. Here's cable asking how it works quite. Could you give us a bird's eye view of how that influence works? How does it operate and what is the ultimate strategy? Well, what the does is it puts into place a very sophisticated and often very subtle. Process so psychological manipulation may not think it's accurate to describe it as grooming and they they identify and target key members of elite political business academic. As people who might be induced one way or another to. Be Drawn into the circle of CCP influence so very much focus on individuals. It's a very clever and subtle process, and so we track how this happens. Certain individuals such as very prominent academics like Jeffrey Sachs. Like former political leaders like former Prime Minister Paul Keating here in Australia. Who Somehow get drawn into this. View of the world and get rewarded for through sinecures through flattery through makings Jean Pink, and so on some. Listen to this I'm. That's not a big deal. We do that stuff. Everybody does that stuff. I think that. We just do it with hookers. which is probably old old now? You know it's like people want money. They just want cash. They want trips. They want expensive dinners. They want jets. Hookers just doesn't work anymore as we wrap it up with. This question from Sagar. Quite what would you say to people who've cables relatively benign know countries foreign countries do this all the time. They tried to influence political discussion around the world. What's really the harm here? Of course countries, big countries do truck who had influencing other nations, but there's a difference between influence and interference, and there's a NAS definition of it here, strategy which where we kind of threes down the track, most of the countries in understanding this and we define even new law against foreign interference a foreign insurances. Its. Covert. Coerce, corrupt, and so the thing about CCP's influence, and we're not talking about China here or China's People's stress that we told rather China's Communist Party. Is that it's secretive. It's coercive. And it goes on behind the scene, so it's hidden the way it works. This is why. Waste Morocco and I for example now book call people out. become very upset, because suddenly the agents who've been operating. Undercover as it were, that is agents of influence. Have they cover Blah and the United Kingdom for example, two of those people have sent legally threatening letters claim that we've defamed because you know we're telling lies, but in fact what we're doing is just lifting the cover off shining light on the CCP's activities and the one thing the CPA loves to do that is operated in the shadows, which is the wonder of democracy with free. That, we can actually put the spotlight on. So Australia is all over that they are way ahead of everybody else. Three said they're like couple years. It had I agree because I've been watching the ABC. Australia's I'm sorry. Maybe on ABC I'm not sure what his name is sixty minutes Australia. There's a they're all on the Youtube and they have a lot of China reports, and they're all depressing. China's taking over the entire south. China Sea they're creating a blockade arena and it's like.

As someone who is interested in the water? Birds on the welfare of humans is that this is largely a political announcement. The UK's been previously declared Ibn the influence of free in April two, thousand sixteen, but the nature of some. Margaret Blitz across Europe means that the is a real risk.

"I think that became a you know fainter and fainter. And I think that what we're seeing in the in the into parliamentary alliance on China is a desire from them, the countries to ensure that when dealing with China, when when thinking of China to ensure that the global rules based order is maintained and that, and I agree the critics of this group they might say that a committee ostensibly formed to counter China that my only escalate tensions between China and the rest of the world. How would you respond to them? I think what it's done. And I think be but corona viruses done. It's because this isn't about legislators. This is also about people in Australia people in Canada the UK, the US and the other. Other countries in joined these these parliamentary allies. Those people are also concerned, so you know there's a great deal of concern here and I think there was some anger about protective equipment being out of Australia, and sent t China by companies, such as Greenland and reese land and I. think that you know there's a lot of people who might think. Maybe we need more able supply chains. Maybe we should make more things here in. Australia and I think in the UK there's been a an increasing awareness for example of having Y in their in their system. What we know is that this been breaches of the parliamentary systems by state actor, a sophisticated state actor we. Tell you that the PEC?

They start to seek a sphere of influence in areas on which its future security and prosperity depend, and then you've got commentators historian James Curran.

And you're serious quite a serious young man in volume of justice causes the laws and and he's done a law degree and all those things was he sort of. was He proud of that. and was he a proud of the fact that you're you're quite a series dedicated young man. Of course he was and you know I formed beautiful relationship with my dad. Before he passed away he developed a tobacco related Cancer and eventually you know passed away Judah that but that was also important for him because it mellowed him and you know we were able to to really hug and took his A particularly the time when when he was dying and I think for those of us who grew up in that era young men in Australia and particularly May. Okay I think is an only child not having the brothers and sisters you know. I didn't really mellow and and really learn how to how gotta love and Hug as generously as I subsequently learned through my father's illness he's mellowing and when I started to share houses with the people that was reinforced in my life been doing work with the average and legal services in inner city Sydney. At the time. And you're dead had a bit of he did have anti-aboriginal Prejudice in him at the time and you loved him. You love your data. Of course you do. And and he's done all these things for you. I think a lot of people wonder how deal with that when you've got some when you really truly dearly love and that's never going to and they have this kind of side to them themselves that is somewhat. I don't know I suppose that might seem to you to would be politically obnoxious. How do you sort that out in your mind? Well I think when you're twenty two twenty three you fight with them with our AMI emme kidding to that extent but obviously was a source of an almost tension. You know here. He was in the National Party and the very conservative on so many issues and had views. I strongly disagreed with around digital Australians. In that we have strong disagreements. But you know Oh. My Dad mellowed. And when he developed a brain tumor he was in Sydney Hospital and mom and I would work with. Daddy was in a dreadful state. He's mind was slightly addled but he was still very loving and he saw this young aboriginal awfully calm towards him to give him a shave because he lost the use of his hands. Mom and I looked at each other and we thought this is gotta be regard. This has got to be very difficult and my dad's just astounded us. He just pointed to this young man who was was coming to give him the shaven he looked at him and said Oh robs might rob smets and he gave this really rice smile. Welcome this young man to Giving the shave and it wasn't the man from outcome that he predicted. It was just a beautiful moment when I think I saw my a father recognized that we're all part of the human family. It was in this very distressing medical situation. He was in in this personal recognition. That hey I was wrong. Where were you when you were told about his death I was going into a vote in the House of Representatives and as a backbench member I always had great relations with the Parliament House staff and they manage to track me down literally is the bells will ring and they'll parliament house so you're getting the coal is Being tall as the bells ringing division I was walking to the to the chamber and they manage needs to track me down the from the switchboard my buddies and they. My mom was on the phone. I told me my dad died and of course she was distressed. I I was distressed and my colleagues in the in the parliament was saying you know. There's a boat on come on come on Robert. You're going to move bells ringing and I said mom gotta go and you can imagine you know The distress but in the parliament the most beautiful thing happened and it was in the Parliament House and I saw the whip. Bain Humphry going around the front bench assign to the ministers in the front bench. Taking his father just died tickets. Father just died and even though it was noisy. I hear this almost eerie. Since what was being said White way down in front of me and Bob Hawke who wasn't particularly close to you know at that time in beautiful way lift the Front Front of the chamber dispatch box and came up and put his arm around me and A content what that was like It was just the most. I St- Wonderful spontaneous active generosity and enormous comfort. And you know in a taught let me a big life lesson. That's never be afraid to to show you love. You were forty when you had your first kid read And that's always that's gigantic earthquake. Heavier this case sure is was the some of the gut you thinking about what what makes us really is. Is it natural nurture. Is that what she thinking about that. Well I should say to paint the picture. Clearly when I married my then why Jodi I became instant fodder of jade who was six at that stage and she became my daughter but Jack was born in nine hundred ninety two do and yes. It was an extraordinary moment. May I had thought all my life and maybe naively in people can judge me harshly by like but I relied and I didn't have the experience of having biological family and look down on this little boy after he was born and that you bet a genetic connection. Yeah Yeah and and you know it just knocked me for six. And it is the case with many people who've been adopted opted that having a child can be a trigger for lifting the contact retail and it's not a horror story we'll get to and But it was. It was my son. Jack's birth caused me within three months to take the steps to seek out my birth mother. You said there was a contact veto. What what what does that? Well the process that's been put in place I think in all with not much destroyed in states is system whereby Adopted people and relinquishing parents can seek to meet each other through. What am I call? Kind of blind context system in that you can contact directly but you register your interest and when it's interesting registered context my with the other party and then there's a kind of a link up arrangement whereby departmental person will put you in contact but you can correct no I don't desire any contact and it's the quota and I had a contact veto because I was so loyal to my mom and dad. I grew up with that. You Know I. I just didn't want to risk anything to Hook them. And I to be honest you know that was my absolute focus but I was to learn. That is a hello world out there that I really needed to know about so then you decided to lift contact Vita and once you've done that. Do they tell you if the other the party has been trying to make contacts. Yes they do. In my case. My mother hadn't been but she left a note. Essentially it was very brief. Note it it might be that she wanted. She wasn't stopping contact but she wanted to. Have it controlled. Because any immediate intrusion into in her life would have been disastrous for her as I came to realize so so once you begin this process of lifting the contact. That's one thing but then wanting to make contact contact another so at the time you referral Government Minister Witcher. Yes that was was that a little. Did you feel very conspicuous. Do you dealing with the government bureaucracy. Of course I did but got a quick thing. Richard in your introduction. You talked about the native title. Of course the Prime Minister Paul Keating was who is leading this process but for me it was an immense probably the most challenging part of my life as it was for his so when when I was making this initial contact it was pretty much as this. A device was launching and turning very ugly and very bitter later and yes I did feel very vulnerable But in this was an irrepressible need on my part once I had thought about it to to to reach out and try and find my birth family what the department advise you about this process about the nature of how this process works reaching out to you real birth mother. Well those as a caseworker that I was allocated this is also something that's very emotional and she was an outstanding human being And I think others working with her were were doing similar job. I I call it. A public service delivered with love. I mean was that there was a level of professionalism care and commitment was outstanding. I didn't need it. My life was fine. I ground up. You know very very lucky young man. That was a federal minister. You know prime of my life but when I gradually began to hear from my casework Sandra That my mother had suffered so grievously whole life had been shaped by the relinquish moment amount of me as a child and she was fragile beyond belief. And therefore I had to place myself in Sandra's hands every step of the white to get this process right. So what the department till you once. They told you they'd like hey. Did your your birth certificate which was case tip use. Well they manage to you. Get this to me the only time because I was the day I got it. You know I'd flown from a Cape York from our strike where I've been working to Melbourne. For major commitment heels. Veal gone back to Ken but picked up my car in Canberra gone to stand well park then finally to pick up my birth cert. There's only one day was all in one day from the Cape from the strike to Melbourne to Canberra and Sydney. Only one day. When you hear that mom and we have we terrified all the feeling happy? I don't know I would be like well I was of course. Yeah terrifying if I was the biggest thing in my life and I was deeply worried about How it might go? I was working. It sounds crazy but you know one hundred canal a week for you know for years while as as the federal minister you know. I took the view that you're in some privileged position to give you've to others to shape the country in these important wise so I gave it everything but I didn't leave it a lot left for myself and not enough of my my mother there is. I came to meet her. What did you write in your first letter to? Do you remember what what the substances I did. I had an instinctive in Chile feeling that I had to reach out to reassure her. I wasn't judging her that I had a good life and insane that I was also a bit torn because I thought what if she reads this and she feels hurt that she missed out on so much and but I had to tell her I had a good life. I'm okay and that's the truth and it's the truth but yes that re shoring go ahead to try and explain a little bit about my life but my role as a minister was kept from her. She didn't know who I was. I did not think about her. And that's when it got really interesting. PODCAST broadcast online. This is conversations. Aw Richard Fidler.

"Good Morning Chairwoman. Waters ranking number mckenry and other members of the committee. I'm pleased to present the Federal Reserve Semi Annual Annual Monetary Policy Report to Congress. Let me start by saying that. My colleagues and I strongly support the goals of maximum. The second major tended to modern monetary theory theory is a rethink of the way. Monetary policies conducted the hands off approach adopted by modern Western governments. No longer works. They say in large part because interest rates sit by central banks are now silo. They no longer have the power to stimulate the economy when required James Mackintosh Tauch is a senior columnist with the Wall Street Journal. I mean clearly. Monetary policy even those who are strong believers in the idea of monetary policy. Maria druggy president of the European Central Bank. For example Bill Dudley. Who ran the new Federal Reserve until recently even these sorts of people very much saying that governments need to come at run deficits because the central banks just can't cut interest rates enough and in the the next recession in particular central banks will once again be back zero interest rights? And it'll be very very hard. Then fill monetary policy to half the usual stimulative effects. I mean they. They haven't really succeeded in stimulating. Inflation for the past decade inflation remains really very low everywhere given given her low interest rates L. and in the next recession the risk as you fall into deflation and there's not a lot central lines can do and sending the central banks themselves worrying about this so it seems reasonable. That other people should do in Australia. Even former Prime Minister Paul Keating has been critical of what he sees as an over reliance on conventional monetary policy. It's run. Its racy argues. The proponents of modern monetary theory say governments need to be much more directly involved in steering the economy and managing inflation not simply leaving those responsibilities to central banks. We are the next year. Go to will likely to say whether the cash right all white zero but it's less than one percent already. That hasn't done much. There really isn't much that the Reserve Bank and couldn't do if the federal government continues and to be fair to them the opposition to have been signed much the same thing this until very recently if they continue to talk talk about the government needs to run a budget surplus under these circumstances they will drive the economy into recession and then people will turn around and think hang on a minute. Who is it? That was predicting this was going to happen. Maybe we ought to listen to them. It's the development of new understanding the wine which our monetary on a tree system operates the wine which are monetary institutions lock central banks and commercial banks government treasuries the Wi fi opera all right the capacities that The currency issuer the federal government in air context have. It's a new way of understanding those things and once you you achieve that I call it lands. It's a superior lands to understanding Nice things and once you tyne that understanding you realized. Is that the sort of neoliberal policies that will lead to believe The only alternative really not the on the alternatives and and the sort of damage that this nearly Blair has inflicted on wide just grows on unemployment on unemployment on poverty rights on rising inequality and slow growth stagnant productivity all of the sort of K.. Things that determine how well being in material terms all of those his policies really were unnecessary and They were alternative. Policies would have delivered superior outcomes and I think in that context that sort sort of enhance as our democracy because it flushes out the sort of myths of mainstream economics which is used as an authority full. Aw nearly brutal policies it flushes. They're mad into the pen and the sort of questions we then ask our leaders political leaders we different because we won't tolerate these economic laws any longer Bill Mitchell the Wall Street Journal's James Mcintosh believes the idea of governments becoming much more interventionist interventionist would be politically problematic in my view. The politics doesn't work like that. So could em- principle. If governments focused focused on inflation. They could in principle raise taxes and cut spending when inflation got out of hand but politically has just completely unacceptable. The idea that any government will come along and do that and history tells us what governments do is a cut spending after elections in race spending just before it actions so that the unpopular likely to win though Mitchell who's An Australian US both driven and one of the leading lights in the program thinks. That's fine fine. And it's democracy and voters can punish incompetent governments but we know the government try and do this repeatedly trying to s a dot of course his w-why democratically elected governments chose to outsource policy monetary policy to sort of arms length central banks in the first place nice to try to overcome this boom bust linked to the electoral cycle. And I just. I'm very cynical by the the idea. The governments will be able to do this as one example. I mean a leading example of this is back in two thousand eight when the. US King System at imploded played in the entire world economy was falling off a cliff congress in the US still. The first time rejected the tall box. It was designed to solve the problem so there is extraordinary political resistance to managing the economy ways just very very difficult whereas that central banks can respond and true the central bank one of the criticisms that MT makes of central boxes and punditry policy isn't really very good and it's true that monetary policy is no perfect being independent politicians or at least alms link from politicians. I think is a very useful. This fall a situation for them to be the problem. Of course I have is not much good being it online if your interest rates are on the floor and there's nothing you can do Take a look at the government should spend to the point with his full employment and a bit of inflation. At that point the government should ease off spending or put up taxes. We'll borrow money to Sort of fund the spending what the critics I and I think the the critics deepest fear is that governments want do that. That is they'll adopt one side of the government which is spend by. Why did the other witches to ease of spending when they've got full employment and inflation and I would not be surprised if some of the people who attacked modern monetary theory a quite comfortable with modern monetary theory in their heart of hats? But they think that it shouldn't be out for public consumption. The idea that there's no financial limit on what the government can spend there resource limit because once you've used up all resources doesn't matter whether you spend more you just create inflation is something they feel. The public isn't ready to handle handle and the other thing is that financial markets are not necessarily ready to handle this and not necessarily reasonable so if the Australian government Edmund announced as menzies did in the early nineteen sixties that. I'm going to run the budget into a bigot deficit. There's a risk that screen jockeys in the financial markets will say the government's being irresponsible. Here we're GONNA soleus trillion dollar and essentially mike the Dollar collapse now. We saw some some of that in the mid eighties. The Australian dollar dropped to less just under fifty. US since it was a pretty unpleasant time. And so that's that's if you like a real restraint now spas they em-empty theorists respond to it by saying or on the financial markets may make things a bit difficult for a while but after a year or two. They'll see sense but it's still a real constraint. That is to say if the government does want to throw the switch to deficit in order to the economy fully employed the need to explain what they were doing at that time because a lot of people don't like the idea because I think the government a household which needs to balance its books.

The Government Accountability Office recently published a report on improving gender diversity <hes> pity on boards it says the importance of diversity must be emphasized and diverse set of underrepresented candidates required it also says boards should have age or a term limits and other countries have done that and more and they've seen results and that includes Australia today we have this really great exchange is between Malcolm Gladwin and Julia Gillard tonight started her career as a lawyer in Melbourne coming to politics in one thousand nine hundred ninety s when she was elected to the Australian Australian House of Representatives before becoming their first woman prime minister in two thousand and ten she was the first woman Deputy Prime Minister on the first woman leader leader Alvin major policy following her term as prime minister. She's accepted fellowships and visiting professorships at universities around the world and she currently chairs the Global Institute for Women's leadership over at King's College London. They have a mission to better understand why women continue to be underrepresented in positions of leadership so let's hear what she's got to say you served as Prime Minister of Australia and you had the question that faces anyone coming out of high office which is what do I do next and tell me how you came to decide what you wanted to do next and what what served the lead you on the particular course Iran. It's a Phero Punch when you come out of her big position like that.

Your party knocks you over all the electives knock you over and not many people actually pick the moment that they're going to gracefully exit politics and so so you know it's been such a public high wire act and then such a public debate that I think craving is the right word but you you didn't take nick. How much consolation did you take in fact that you had broken through for women. You were the first female Prime Minister of Australia. All I'm very proud of that and I don't want to overdramatize overdramatize this some grieving period. I don't feel like that now but I did let myself have a number of weeks bikes where I didn't do very much adjust recuperated and adid allow the emotions of the loss to be with me and then you can put it aside but if you've never laid it costs through you than I think it probably manifest several years down the track probably mutated and unpleasant conned of way <hes> but since that period I've been very focused on the new challenges and when I look back on the past it's with a sense of pride head with lessons learned with things to share.

If you went back to the early nineteen nineties the deep figure would have been around fourteen percent for the parliament so yes they'd been a big change and particularly a big giant in the live a- party because we adopted an an affirmative action rules so a certain percentage of Seitz had to go to women and that percentage had grown over time to forty percent so a very dramatic change in labor yeah what did come back to the the the the role of these those kinds of rules in in terms of bringing about changes at posted attitude <music> settings truly important one but I wanted to before I get there and curious about a couple of things one. Is that this Christian numbers so if you said it was twenty five percent when you were there. How high does it have to be before. The issue starts to go away. I'm not sure that you can put a mathematical medical number on that but there's plenty of research that says one woman can't make the difference but once you get up to figures Laka food they need to start to see changes and intuitively that seems to me to be around about rod that to have an impact on Cultural Moors in the way that institutions this work. You need at least two third yeah. Do you think that had there been a third or save. It's eight forty percent of the parliament <unk> female the time you were. Prime Minister Mr that would have tempered some of the misogyny that you faced not necessarily unfortunately I'd love to be able to say yes to that question but it wasn't just within the parliament that there was an issue about gender and gender insults that was profoundly in the media and social media <hes> and so so I think it would have flowed anyway and then because the political context is a fierce one and I think it should come in you containing about values and big picture issues so people should be strongly engaged in that clash of ideas but because that clashes so strong. It's you know it would really. They naive to say well. Women never participate in using that gender imagery. That's not my experience but it doesn't change the climate for someone engaging. Connect kind of rhetoric is different when they look around and they see lots of female faces when they look around. Do they have less permission to speak that way. I'VE KATHERINE THEY'RE IN A failing varmint. I think ultimately the more women there are the LISP missionaries to speak that way and second and the more public pressure and advocacy about being bitter about women in leadership the more things change I mean I lived with the phenomenon of social media but you know it was relatively recent on main social media's Bang Turbo charged in the time since and now on you know social media is often news to call out someone. WHO's engaged in sixes conduct. I mean this is the legacy of the May two movement but it goes beyond out the issue of sexual harassment. They wasn't much of that when I was there so in some ways we were getting the negative side of social media without that more positive saad out of trying to advocate for better ways of including people in dialogue without nine cooling using jaded insults is an interesting distinction sanctioned between the participation of women as a whole and <unk> participation of women in the highest levels of leadership and I'm wondering other one problem or they two problems can you if you solve the first question of general participation do inevitably solve the second or is it is a whole different battle. It has to be fought about getting women from the back benches to the to the cabinet or to the Prime Minister's office. I think they're related about a button on what the same problem so you're never going to see equal ministries or women bay prime ministers an equal amount of time unless. The go-to backbench that's roundabout half because you don't even have people in the qualifying ring that you then still need to change sit of other things things to make sure women are coming through the leadership including this <hes> public media reception and how Jane did that is very practical Arctic who said of questions for women with kids around work and family life even the attraction or lack of it <hes> for women to these combative fatty sorts of occupations. I think all of that needs some attention but it starts with getting half half on the backbench in terms teams have <unk> incentive. If you think about from the perspective of voter I've always wondered whether the active voting for a female candidate prepares as you adequately for the act of supporting female leader or a whether one might actually be an excuse not to do the other that if because I voted for a female added a longer feel I need to support a female female leader so the I've given at the office kind of I <hes> I think in this area of gender and leadership there is a bit of giving at the office. I think that's true in the corporate world is Willis in politics surveys. Actually research shows that many a chase of boards of directors and CEOS when they get the one woman one woman on the board the one woman in the face wait then go take that box that change a thing we've done that. Let's move on so a bit of giving it the office I think in politics voting for fame I'll candidate is a great start but we shouldn't assume just because people are prepared to vote for female candidates that are looking at a female later and receive her and evaluate her equally is plenty of psychological research about all unconscious biases biases the little whispers in the back of our head out the Tillis that when women come through for leadership they're probably not very lockable probably very hard bitten you you know difficult to get along with and that they in refresh seen to how much sense of connection do you feel to the lead. How much are you prepared to follow low who have critical or harsher valuations if she gets into some political trouble and inevitably if you're in politics you get into trouble one day as so? I think that as a state of other things that have to happen but I don't think people sit there and say oh I voted for woman so job done I do think that they isn't appetite in the community to say more women come through. If your task is to increase your goal is to increase the number of female leaders tickly in areas where there have been very few. I'm curious about how strategic one should be so remembering during the civil rights movement in America there was a a Rosa parks was the woman who was chosen to desegregate the buses of.

"Well to quite a bit of negotiating onto stand to get them back together band. But they the whole objective was full labor to present a United front. We've spoken on these program and others monocle about the recent history and astronomy with the chairman of prime ministers, not only on the labor side of politics, which we're talking about at the moment, but on the conservative side as well with the liberal and national parties, and particularly the liberal party, which is ruling in coalition with the nationals at the moment. They have changed prime minister several times in the past three years, and we now have Scott Morrison as prime minister so the objective in bringing forward. Julia Gillard and Kevin rod Bichon arrivals who replaced each other as prime minister by the lion potty east to underline compare and contrast with the liberal government. And the fact that they are the ones with the leadership ructions more recently. It was pretty clear what they were trying to display communicate us suppose by putting these. Two side by side and quite an achievement to get them side by side at all let alone smiling. But as you suggest Karen bitter infighting dominate the Rudd and Gillard years. Now, it seems to be dominating the current government. Do you think that this display of unity will be enough to convince people that actually when it comes to the labor party all of that is in the past? Even if you know, it might not actually be the case. Well, I think the opinion polls tell us that labor is a head at this point in the election campaign. The polls have toughened and the gap is narrower than it was between the coalition and labor, but libraries still ahead. So it looks like people are prepared to take the risk that certainly what the telling the pollsters and go back to the light of Honey, they do seem to be still be exercised about the chairman on the liberal side. And there is a suggestion that perhaps some of the people from the members of parliament who were orchestrators of the last replacement of a prime minister may we'll see some punishment at the ballot box. But at this stage, it does look like we might be set to see a change of government. It's always an interesting thing when a ustralian governments hold back a leader of the policy often. It can be a good thing. But with the current state of politics, you never quite sure I suppose, but there was another former prime minister at the launch that seemed to create a few headlines of his own v. Former prime minister Paul Keating made an appearance at the launch to he's always had a bit of vote way with words, but look this time he was back in his old while performing his old tricks. I suppose you could say he lay will the the prime minister the current prime minister that is a fossil in a baseball cap. It seemed that a Bill shorten their the current labour leader wasn't entirely on board with everything that Mr. Keating had to say there. That's true at a fossil reference was related to the fact that Scott Morrison came into parliament with a lump of coal in his hand at one point last year and wife and said you're afraid of cold coal mining being a point of difference in debate in the parliament in between the two parties at the moment. But you quite right. The more controversial thing that pull cashing said in an interview with the ABC television after that launch was about China and a strenuous attitude to China and particularly about a strategy security agencies. He described as being run by numbers. He said L security agencies are run by enough as and I had a terrible attitude to China, and that should be replaced because they would basically prejudiced against China now that was more problematic full Bill Scholten today both parties major parties of tended to try and take a bath. How this view of national security and foreign affairs, and Mr. Scholten, Canada and said he didn't agree with his predecessor much as he respected him and takes his wise counsel occasionally middle.

"John Curtin bench shiftily enough, a coal will yell. Look. It's it is quite extraordinary. This is a part of politics that is long gone. I think Menzies was essentially an honorable and decent person who believes in the dignity of of public law and public service, and he had genuine friendships across the political divide in very rare families extrordinary letter that he'd written to join Kurt and a week before he died on and forty five. He was the launch Menzies opposition later, and he said look take all the time you need to rest relax thicket back going for holiday and worry about politics been chiefly. And I who was he's treasurer I looking off to things so don't worry. And that's a remarkable thing in in politics to have that they're in the middle of World War Two. As well. And yet, you probably didn't know that states relationship at the time. This is all behind the saints. Correct. Yeah. That's right. I mean knife four politics hard as any contemporary politician does, but they had a genuine friendship in. These interviews men's these talks about at the end of the digest simply having a drink or a Cup of tea with curtain or shiftily at the end of the day and just talking about politics, but often just talking about politics, and it was a genuine fringe, and he had a pretty good relationship with Colo you nodded in the contempt for Gough Whitlam rot. That's right. The funny thing is they both didn't vote for their party's in nine hundred seventy two fascinating. So call will who was leader of the labor party from sixty one to sixty seven did not vote for labour and seventy two Gough Whitlam and Menzies did not vote for McMahon in seventy two. That's right. And they can fought it to each other that I could not stay in the political parties if that ninety seventy two election, and in fact, go good evidence to suggest that Menzies did not vote liberally nine hundred sixty nine when Joan Gordon was wild or non and seventy four when Billy Snedden was liberal. There's at least three elections where he lift the fall. But he certainly came back for Malcolm phrases, nineteen seventy five election based on your research. Do you think the Menzies was a conservative liberal or centrist? This is a question. I get wherever I go. Look, it's difficult to apply Menzies belief in politics politics today in a contemporary context. I argue in the book that hey promoted liberalism within a conservative economic social policy framework. I mean, that's what he did. But certainly conservative in he's respect for institutions. He's fondness for the monarchy. He's belief in big power alliances is love of Westminster parliamentary democracy in the British legal tradition. But he did try to push the envelope on those liberalism questions. And I think we need to think about the context which liberal parties formed in the middle of the second World War. There was a question about increasing state power lives plans for nationalization extending rationing and wartime controls after the war. So so liberal parties fall. In this in this political cauldron where they were very shop political divides between socialism, and essentially liberalism, and he always himself as a liberal, and that's the why a dentist philosophically, but he did it within a conservative prime and historical context as you size important different eras, but he would have been aghast. At sei, John how it support for tariff cuts and work choices. Correct. Absolutely. Look, I think what we need to. Remember is the economy remind family shackled to very tightly regulated product and capital markets during the main zero there was rarely a budget surplus. The top marginal tax rate was sixty cents in the Dollah, Menzies Australia is different ustralia. It's not the Estrela of today and really one of the K messages of the book, Tom. He's policy legacy doesn't give us much. God's foot today. But how we practice the autumn. Silence of politics does urine Arendt's between the lines. This is Tom Switzer with Troy Brampton. He's the author of a new bog Raphy on Robert Menzies which was recently launched by the federal treasurer, Josh fraud book who also happen. Is to be the member four of young.

Wherever rate split from the system where we have the Xenophon is running around about Britain and bootstraps why not all Khosro cringe on the mandate which held us back for nearly generation. Prime minister Paul Keating, slamming the Menzies legacy that was annoying Noni to now let's get John Howard's response to katie's attack. He's held with me a few years ago. Well, I heard those remarks before. Somebody wants city would say that wouldn't be held us back. I will high minus shipping. Nodding forty nine was forty nine percent by not in seventy. It was close to seventy percent the nodding. Fifties was the first decade of the twentieth century in which ordinary a share of the good life. Now, if that's holding you back if that putting able gently to sleep, well, I'm all for hauling paper bag and putting them gently to sleep John. How'd with may a few years ago on this program now Troy Brampton who's wrought about the Menzies legacy catering, Ohio. It will look I'm going to disappoint. You Thome inside that I think that Beith Ron and wrong. Look, this is what makes such a compelling biographical subject. Is that you know, he continues to arouse strong emotions for some people. He's the personification of statesmanship in the twentieth century for others, stuffy at Wardi and figure out of chain with the emerging strata in the nineteen fifties and sixties the truth is that he's more substantial than he's critics lay out, but he has more full. It's than he's at Moore's except so yes, he got a lot of things rot. But there are a lot of things that we've lift in the poss and in the book, there are some quad jarring comments from Menzies on things locked Australia policy on average people on a pot in South Africa things like that that, you know, a really out of place in Estrella today. Well, one thing that means he's did get rot was the manner of his retirement. He did defy pals doctrine that all political Crees invalid. This is the Sydney Morning Herald following these resignation in all his long Ryan he has never enjoyed greater domination ovaries party. His government has never seemed more secure. He's health and energy are amazingly good for man of seventy one. He's mind is shop as ever no one can debt that if he wished he could remain in power for minis yet and fought at least one more election with success in the herald concluded his retirement is a model for other politicians both in Australia and abroad, you look at it wasn't exemplary departure from the prime ministership. He's still the prime minister delay. Under their own steam, you know in the more that fifty years, but I do think he probably stayed too long. I think it would have been better for him to leave perhaps before the non aged sixty three election. He would've voided the tragedy in Vietnam. They would have been list questions about commitment to things that were changing the live apart changed its position on the water strategy policy, for example, and it's interesting that when Harold Holt became prime minister, the liberal government move quite quickly in areas of policy, also, so they changed the water strider policy. They brought and the referendum on indigenous Australian, so so they recognize there was a Nate to China. Yes. The Sydney Morning Herald also reflects that of thinking when it argued quote, the Menzies period was not an era of political or intellectual excitement, ideas were not welcomed to bite was not encouraged intellectuals where frowned upon snubbed. It's time for China now fees ago on this program. Troy asked Hinson Robert Menzies daughter for her thoughts on the academic lifts. The other and what is an intellectual if he wasn't an intellectual he had Betty intellect and most people, I know, and this expression, intellectual more exactly does it mean. I talking about academics. Good. Yes. He did not always admire academics because they were academic. And they did not always understand the practical consequences of what they were suggesting, and he was a practical person Henderson on the academic lifts critique of her father, Robert Menzies yellow gothic. I think that that is a fair criticism got an endorsement for the book from Clive James who pointed out, the Robert Menzies government gave a vast generation of stralia, essentially free university education with scholarships and dramatically expanded the number of universities and resources going to them. So he gave them their education, and then they use the rest of their lives to denigrate him. So I think Menzies is on misunderstood by a lot of stray liens. He didn't get everything wrought. Something's he got wrong. I mean, there's a range of things. That he did that might these country better than it was will Menzies one set of the IB see quite I've never been persona grata with the IBC nor the IB with me. So it's great to have his boggled for on. The public broke us. Troy, great to have you on between the lines. Thanks for having me. Tom joy Bramson.

"Fashioned recession reminds me of comments into the former australian prime minister paul keating the recession we had to have but it's interesting what you failed to mention there you don't consider the trade water be any particular factor involved it's felt like it's been coming for a while because if you look around the rest of the world we've we've struggled so i guess that's a difficult one to gauge i mean where does sentiment crossover into ceo's making decisions not to spend money because they're concerned about a possible trade war we don't know where that goes think that you would need some fairly significant increases in tariffs and at the moment the sort of increases that we're talking about going from around a one point four percent effective tariff in us up to around two percents is not going to be enough to drive that sentiment loa we think so you would need a significant increase in esscalation from where we're looking at at the moment how much of a factor is the oil price and all of this.
