"The standard of living host. Everyone around the world. The united states is taking real leadership here. And i say that as we've just completed the g. seven is meeting of the world's leading industrial countries. And and we've seen coming out of the g. Seven meeting Some pretty serious pledges about providing substantial financing and funding one hundred billion dollars worth of funding to the developing world to help make sure that that they can leapfrog pass the fossil fuel stage as they developed their economies. They don't have to. They have to make sure they don't make the same mistakes that we made in. You know depending on this planet harming carbon source energy and We see efforts to provide the funding to deal with the impacts of climate change which is very important as well because they have the least resources and yet are seeing a lot of the the most dire impacts of climate change so that was a really positive development. We see some really bold pledges on going into cop twenty six this next major climate meeting later this year glasgow By the united states by the eu by the uk Certainly or as johnson. I think has surprised a lot of people with you know how strong he's been on climate. So that's all reason for encouragement. But here's the thing you know. The current commitments under paris aren't nearly enough to get us where we need to be in terms of reducing our carbon emissions. And so later this year we're going to need to see the nations of the world come together with meaningful commitments net. Clothes china were waiting to see what their pledge is going to be and that means stragglers like a australia under scott morrison who have really sort of seeded. The the leadership australia once had when it comes to climate action. Yeah i mean. I've i've gotta ask though i mean you. You say that you think boris johnson. Prime minister here has made some bold pledges. A lot of people questioning whether those pledges will actually materialize interaction than there was a report out today. The climate change committee which said that. The government Inaction on climate change was failing to keep up with the impact off wyoming What do you think about that. You know there's no question you know it's one thing for policy makers to talk the talk. They also need to walk the walk and so we have to hold them accountable so it absolutely will be essential that you know the good people of the uk do hold. Boris johnson their government accountable for for for keeping their promises when it comes to pledges. Better made Later this year at cop. Twenty six and the actions that are taken right. So it's one thing to say you're going to reduce your carbon emissions is another thing to actually support policies. That do that and so we need to see substantial a efforts to price carbon to provide subsidies for noble energy to block new fossil fuel infrastructure. We need to see follow through on all of those fronts whether we're talking about the uk the united states the e. u. Or anybody else. Because neither you nor i can solve this problem on our own. We do need our governments and we need the sort of world community the global community to come together to address the greatest challenge that we face as a civilization the climate crisis. Micromanage fascinating to talk to you. Thank you so much for your time. Really been a pleasure to summarize all the news this week. I'm joined by victoria seabrook. She's sitting next to me in the studio here. She skies climate reporter victoria. What's been going on. Hi sam as you already touched on in your interview earlier. The government has been failing to protect us from the worst impacts of climate change or ready affecting us in the uk. Right here right now or at least that's according to its own independent advisors the climate change committee. That's almost like a report card of what c plus for the government. If that to be honest the report warned about the ways that were already suffering in the form of heat waves drought and sea level rise and these are affecting things like our food supply the natural environment and even human health with two thousand people year. Dying from heat related reasons already not set to triple by twenty fifty and in fact it said actually were even worse prepared to deal with these sorts of things than we were five years ago when the last equivalent report came out because the government didn't get its act together then meaning more problems have now been locked into our system so there's been a real opportunity cost of the government just not getting his act together exactly wasted time effectively and this is all probably pretty scary warning to anyone who thinks that climate change doesn't really affect them by the good news is the committee has come up with loads of suggestions about how we can adapt and cope and as michael man mention. Yes the government has set some pretty bold targets to cut emissions and protect the environment. But this report said the government's talk the talk but it's been much less willing to make those necessary difficult decisions. It's all a bit embarrassing though. Isn't it straight off the back of the g seven. We soar the footage. Didn't we have them all down there. In in cornwall and head of cop twenty six that big climate meeting happening here in glasgow. the government's going to have to take the report seriously. I would imagine it was also cleaner day. Wasn't it this week on.

Australia is demanding tech giants pay for news. Google relented, Facebook didn’t
"A dispute between lawmakers and american tech giant's took a dramatic turn this week for months. The government has been debating a new media code that would force the likes of google and facebook to pay traditional news outlets win linking to their content. The code was approved on wednesday by australia's lower house of parliament and is expected to pass in the senate next week on the same day. Google announced a three year. Deal with news court. The rupert murdoch owned conglomerate that has a big presence in australia's broadcast market google's decision to pay up in line with the proposed legislation was seen as a move to placate lawmakers but facebook took a different approach. Australians waking up yesterday to see the news wouldn't have actually seen any news if they get their news from facebook because on that day facebook decided to block all news articles australia. Tom wainwright is our media. Editor facebook tried to ban just news websites. That was the intention but it eased some kind of machine learning method which didn't seem to go very well because as well as banning news sites they banned all kinds of other things charities the fire service health services a project for children with cancer and most of those were reasonably quickly corrected npr thames. The damage was done people outraged. Why exactly where people outraged well. People are outraged about fact that so many things have been blocked the whence pace to be blocked but people are saying that in the middle of a pandemic is obviously not a great time to be blocking legitimate news sites providing true information about things. You know what the state of current lockdown laws are or where to get your vaccine that kind of thing. Scott morrison the prime minister not surprisingly is capitalizing on this. The idea of shutting down the sort of sorts digest today as some sort of threat. We'll have a strategy is reactive at. He's keen to make this as much of an international question as he can and he's pointing out to other countries are considering these codes as well and and wrestling with the same dilemmas. So i think australia is hoping that other countries will take it side in this battle and so what did facebook say about. How did they explain itself. Facebook says the australia's position basically rests on a misunderstanding about the relationship between facebook and publishers. And they say the actually. When facebook publishes a link to an article is the publisher actually benefiting from that not facebook and so they think that they should be the ones who are required to pay publishers for linking to publish it stories in fact they say the australia last year they reckon that they generated more than five billion referrals to australia new sites which they say would be worth about four hundred million australian dollars and they say actually if publishes thing that somehow getting a deal from this they should just stop publishing their stories to facebook. They're not under any obligations. Have their stuff on that. But for its part. Google made a different decision. Well that's interesting google's done exactly the opposite you know the tech firms faced with this in some ways. Impossible demand know they were told to pay up or take their business elsewhere. Facebook decided it was probably less bad to shut down its news links than it was to set the precedence of coughing up. Google the opposite choice. And it's this week a deal with news coal. Which is rupert murdoch's news organization and smaller deals with of the news organizations the terms of which have been fully disclosed. But the gist seems to be that. They'll basically pay them lots of money and in return they'll be allowed to carry on listing their news articles. And what do you make of those different approaches to this threat of of the differing actions that google and facebook of taking on this i think really reflect the kinds of business that they're in for face but they say the news actually is quite a small part of what they do is less than four percent. They say of what you see on your news feed for google. I think search engine. That wasn't allowed to show links twenty news articles wouldn't be much of search engine and you can imagine people pretty quickly abandoning google and going to something else like say being which is owned by microsoft which has been a chilly diversities these australian reforms. So i think google just decided that it was too big a hit for it to take facebook decided to gamble and i think we'll see in the next few days whether this gamble pays
"scott morrison" Discussed on The Signal
"Conference. That joe biden. Us president is putting on related to climate and we expect scott morrison will appear in person than certainly via video link is. We've all been doing a year or so. He'd like to have something to bring to the table. There is very unlikely he'd have a target at target. Then the glasgow twenty twenty one. Climate conference at the end of the year which is the follow up to the paris agreement. That's an even bigger sort of crunch point. You'd hope that he would have something to take their as well. And look i think it would still be very challenging for scott morrison to take a hard target to that conference but not impossible and he seems to be working towards doing that but he's made it very clear he's going to do it through technology not taxes so that means when we expect some sort of mechanism like a national energy guarantee or an emissions trading scheme or carbon prosser all those sort of policies. I think it'll be through investment close to the direct action sort of way of doing things that tiny abbott was pushing but election. I'm not sure. I'm not sure it would be easier for him to go to an election on this policy in some ways if it didn't blow up his party on the why he's made it very clear that he his priority. This year is managing the pandemic to the point. Where he's he's not really putting forward any other big policy proposals or he's saying he's not into now. This would be a big one so i don't think he would need to have. This disbanded down before going to an election. As long as the rollout of the vaccine goes smoothly interesting. So you think that he could with this somewhat unresolved with preferably. As far as he got for example he could still election. I think he would need something he would need to be able to say something and show something whether that's an zero twenty fifty target. Not sure if he would need that saw it could end up being what a credible to nowhere like a crab dance. I guess it's better than a crab soup. That's the signal for today and for this week. Thank you for all your e. Mails this way therapy. So many if you would like to talk to us directly and you haven't yet or you want to do it again. I guess the addresses the signal at abc.

The COVIDSafe app is back. Will it work better this time?
"I'm health reported taken tyler. An opposition and journalist alter norman swan. It's wednesday the second of december and with us. Today we have a special guest Technology reporter james patil. Welcome hello sorry. Jane spec in april we had high hopes for the covid safe at that. It was going to be kind of the answer to contact tracing in australia. And it was rolled out and it didn't really land the way. At least the government wanted to but they releasing type two point are the wake can give an update on what happened before. And what the new app. The new version of the app is promising. Australia's sunscreen right. That was the phrase back in april. I think it was twenty eight that it launched and at the time we were told it was the key to us being able to reopen and to be on being able to live our lives. Covid safe uses bluetooth signals to exchange little packets of data with other phones around you using that app as well. Yeah it didn't land so so well. There were early concerns around the app. Not working so on on iphone not working so well when the when it was in the background or the screen was locked. There were privacy issues as well and although there was strong downloads in the in the first few that's sort of type it off. Seven months later were now download downloads. Which is well below that forty percent target. That scott morrison sit back in april. How effective has it been even with all those problems. Has it detected any cases where we recently heard that there were seventeen. People not identified by manual contact. Tracing that covered saif was able to identify. We heard that in senate estimates just a little while ago as to how effective it's been it's actually quite hard to tell because we have very little data we don't know how many active user so that seven million donald's figure it's actually quite worthless because it could include a whole bunch of people who downloaded it and then deleted it or who don't have it actually running actively on their phone. Can we talk about the updated version. Then what what's the tech community's take on it now if people have got the app or they want to download the app is the new version going to address the concerns that were expressed at the beginning. I was speaking with the tech community recently Shortly after the announcement of the died and there was a mixture of surprise and despair. I think many of them had been working very hard to provide bug fixes into point up problems with the app and the very experienced senior members of the community and they heard about the update through a news article. So those a sense that i tried so hard to help out and then just being sidelined. It's true that they had been the duty had asked for feedback when they announced it. But you know the overwhelming response from the tech community was if we had been asked we would have said. Don't go with the system. Go with the apple. Google exposure notification framework. Which is also a bluetooth technology system but has been developed specifically by apple and google four contact tracing on on phones that run the the operating systems and many other countries are using it now and that's important for two reasons. I suppose that there's more proof that it is more sort of testing of how it works but also if there is a global standard means that can be international contact tracing and the great promise of that say you can reopen borders international borders earlier. And so have you got any fix on the current changes whether they'll make it more usable and more people will find it useful. The chinese are about how the phones actually exchanged bluetooth signals. So it's a small part of the overall game. The has taken a protocol code herald from third party which is called vm. Ware means that the phones according to the more efficient or they they're bitter Exchanging signals so before you know it didn't work so well on iphones didn't works so well knows locked. The saying those problems been solved. They've found work arounds and so on. There's a big caveat to that. Which is that in the past. Those kinds of also been made but it's light been found out that there are problems and that the work arounds aren't perfect. You know much earlier. Version of harold with something that the us and the uk. We're looking at using for their smartphone contact. Tracing but back in june. I decided against that and i went with the apple. Google i so no other country in the world is using the herald system so any idea toll. Why they didn't. What's the downside of the apple. Google system privacy. What what's the complaint. That's interesting because i actually had an email from the government media liaison after my article went out and he reaffirmed. That strategy has no intention of using the the apple approach. He argued that the problem with that approach is it. It only notifies the person if they've been exposed doesn't notify notify central health authorities. So you know. There's nothing to guarantee that the person's actually going to go and get tested

I agree with what Paul was saying earlier that Morrison's shown himself to be pragmatic and quick footed in this and I think we're lucky for that. But . I I don't think that this lines up with bricks and with trump's appeal to the rest spilled poor Kelly. . Well I think conservatism is changing if you look at. . America Britain Australia and there's not a dopey getting very significant changes into servitude. . Thought. . Different changes argued very strongly that there are very substantial differences between Donald Trump and Scott Morrison. . I think people who argue that. .

If you'd like because we've got the transition from Ronald, , Reagan who a generation ago was the great conservative champion, , and now we have Donald Trump, , who if you lock is a populist conservative? ? And that transformation is simply enormous install ending content I mean trump violates all the virtues of conservatism in terms of restraint prudence disciplined respect. .

You mentioned the tax cuts leaving that aside traditional liberal governments are about balancing the books Paul, how much an as do you think aries in the Liberal Party about in the parliament and outside about these handouts to preserve jobs and livelihoods? Are. I. Don't think there's much on these at all OPTIMA and Tom. and. A couple of reasons for this if there is to be on, he's He's will come through the down the track, but essentially what's happening here is to govern is following the Orthodoxy or what you might call the new Orthodoxy in terms of meeting the financial and economic crisis. So roller response is sort of radical. It's also conventional. The official family is working together very closely. The Treasury the Reserve Bank, what the government is doing is essentially supported by private-sector economists. It's in law and with Patrick amended by the VCD and the IMF not the cabinet is very nodded, the Prime Minister and the treasurer are working very closely together so far the results look good. I think the Overwhelming sentiment on the back benches. Support, the government strategy in the hope that this gives individual employees, the chance of actually being reelected and my will give the government the chance of being reelected. So the reinvention of Australian liberalism is on full display with this budget judith break you agree with Paul Kelly about the the audio logical significance of these changes but actually think the government had much choice in that sense I do think we can see something audio logical preferences in a couple of the policies poor mentioned the tax cuts they've chosen tax cuts over for example, committing to a permanent increase in new act now co Job Seca. They've also, for example, if we look at the way, they wanted to stimulate the housing market. They've gone for giving money to individual owners rather than, for example, embarking on a social housing project. So I think in some of the means, we can still see some of the ideological preferences of the Patty. One of the things I've wondered when I've been watching the events unfold. If Labor had won the last election was in government with the Liberals have supported the same levels of spending or would they have if you like stayed in the sort of ideological bunker bean and attacked the blow out of the deficit? I mean, it's a hypothetical. In some ways I think we've been very lucky that it's been the liberals and the coalition in government because they can sense being able to Ghana much more support. I, think than I have been able to do for the same levels of spending but isn't cameras response to the COVID crosses more consistent with other Western governments during the pandemic Judy. Yes that's what I think. I had much option but the question is if the coalition of being opposition, would they have supported a Labor government going? You've written a lot about this have many many decades about when orthodoxies or overturned. It's usually bipartisan is that you'll since if the coalition cypher argument's sake wherein opposition I would have gone along with this big spending interventionism. Look are essentially agree with what Judy's said about this I think in a sense we're. Fortunate, if you liked that the coalition's in government because it's taken all the big spending decisions. and. Lay has been prepared to go along with back. In fact, it's argued that there should be even more spending. So in that sense, we've had a broad degree of thought-out ship within the economic framework. It is hot the typical of course to tron speculate about what would have happened if alive had been in office doing this but I do think that the coalition in opposition would have been tempted to make caught a lot of criticisms and to suggest that the spending had gone too far. There's a big difference for party thing in government managing across and being an opposition. Cape with this theme of a political realignment among center right parties around the Western world. If you think about Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen, he tapped into widespread anxieties. America's rust belt. What can class constituencies? Boris Johnson showed last December, he resonated with traditional British Library voters in the Midlands and northern England. Judy. Do you think that Morrison in a wise doing the same thing here in Australia? Now, I think they're very different sorts of crises. I mean the pandemic is an external. Crisis, it's not being caused by politics in any way it's not back nationalism versus globalism or any of those things, and so I don't agree with that. I agree with what Paul was saying earlier that Morrison's shown himself to be pragmatic and quick footed in this and I think we're lucky for that. But I I don't think that this lines up with bricks and with trump's appeal to the rest spilled poor Kelly. Well I think conservatism is changing if you look at. America Britain Australia and there's not a dopey getting very significant changes into servitude. Thought. Different changes argued very strongly that there are very substantial differences between Donald Trump and Scott Morrison. I think people who argue that. Morrison is a pilot version of DONALD TRUMP MAUREEN DOWD in the New York Times by the way, but go on. I think. I think turned him mentally misunderstand the situation I. Think the change in conservatism is very dramatic in the United States. If you'd like because we've got the transition from Ronald, Reagan who a generation ago was the great conservative champion, and now we have Donald Trump, who if you lock is a populist conservative? And that transformation is simply enormous install ending content I mean trump violates all the virtues of conservatism in terms of restraint prudence disciplined respect. Regard for the political system, he thrives on division. So he likes all the traditional conservative norms, and then when looks at his policies. Well he's sabotage the global trading system. He's an arch protectionist. He's engaged in this trade war with China he's appraised dictators and suspicious about. So I guess one of the Fundamental Christians here is the extent to which trump is an aberration. And the extent to which post trump American concert is we'll have to try and create a new position cognisant of the damage that trump has done to the traditional Republican Party

"And many people have said, this Austrailia is Brexit, momento, strays, Trump moment, or whatever. But there's also been a lot of pushback on that. And this is in a way my question think it does connect a bit to Bridgeport six does it fit that patent as what happened in Australia fit a pattern. We're seeing around the world of these surprising results were a more populous strain come through. It's not being picked up by polls and pundits and prediction markets, or is it something much more familiar because, to me what was so remarkable that you're strain election is just uncannily reminded me of a British election, which was not the ad Milligan David Cameron one? It was the John Major Neil Kinnock one in nineteen Ninety-two the conservative party just ditched, their leader as the Australians had put in so many didn't seem to Charismatics into bit. Dull facing. Labor party. That was convinced. It's time at come was a bit hubristic as was the case with Bill. Short Australian leader in Australia. The polls were confounded in roughly the same way, and it was an old-fashioned tax and spend election, which the liberals the Australian conservatives ran this nine hundred ninety s playbook campaign about tax, spend responsible promises, jobs paybacks, and so on. And is really big question in contemporary politics. Is it new is this different resists familiar? I didn't know sends you go to the Austrian one. But which one did it remind you did it feel like a Brexit moment, or did it feel like that was, I can remember the election nineteen ninety two very, very vividly. The looks on the face of the labor people really reminded me of nine hundred ninety two. I think that's right. I think the panels with nineteen Ninety-two off very strong, the for the ones the as with John Smith Sharrow budget, one thousand nine hundred the Australian Labor party went in with a very detailed perspective of what it would do. And that perspective was dismantled by the liberals by by Scott Morrison by the press operation, and now, people are saying labor won't do that, again, just as there was a retreat from having anything detailed as the shadow budget, the elections after nineteen Ninety-two, it also creates awkward dynamic, because Scott Morrison, weak point was that he seemed to lack legitimacy because he emerged last man, standing emassy faction fights, inside the party. And what he lacked was a kind of legitimation of his own, and that's what he's gone. And so I think the power outs with Jamaica with ninety-nine. Ninety-two on strong. A but the reason I think I'd caution against mapping Australian results too much onto peripherals partly the Australia is a federal system. I mean, the ninety nine hundred outlets national is out and British elections, generally Norway's, but generally fairly straightforward decided by the politics of the so whole uniform national swing release, they used to be, you can't help story about Australia, but doesn't end up sang a lot of Queensland in Vitoria innocent, Wales lady didn't do great. But they didn't do so badly, either there was some seats where we even swings labor and so on. But labor is in great difficulties and came nowhere near forming majority government because they just did very very badly in Queensland and Queensland politics is strange, and there's nothing like that. I think that maps onto thinking about British election results, exact Scotland in certain circumstances. That would be, there's another come to second, but that would be a reason for thinking these closer to more recent results in United States or Britain or elsewhere in Europe, when you look at the map of Australia that does then look like this big divide between metropolitan university cosmopolitan bits of Australia, and the rest, and then Quinton fits more into the rest and other parts of Australia does. And again, you look at the map rating look the mob near states, you see those devices big devices door open up, and that does seem to be in that aspect to this. Australian election to people sore country was divided in ways, and quite appreciated to that point. So that's not like ninety was very much a uniform. Mm swing national swing election. I was gonna say, I think that is the, the significant difference. I mean, I think the parallels are that if you stop British politics, some put in the mid nineties, before it becomes she probably stop in September. Sixteenth nineteen Ninety-two on Wednesday morning. It looks like that if you have full franchise democratic politics in Britain, the dominant parties, the conservative party, and then.

And the target the cap for immigration on an annual basis, it's one hundred ninety thousand and they didn't even make the cap in the twelve months to June.

Never been under the impression that Australia's particularly full as the name. Indeed, identing it'll ever be full. But if it is the case that the roads are clogged and public transport is grinding to a halt. And there's no room in schools, that's bad management. That's not because it's too many people there.

"It's seventeen thirteen in Sydney where there's a by-election this weekend, not the type of thing that normally sets the international news agenda on fire. This weekend voters in the wealthy beachside constituency of Wentworth will vote in the knowledge that the decision could bring down Scott Morrison, government alsi politics is a bloody game. This weekend went for voters have been given a knife. The government has majority of just one cease of the liberal party currently holds. The constituency poll suggests though that it will lose this. The bitter irony is that the by election was caused by the resignation of Malcolm Turnbull as an MP after he was asked by Morrison in a party coup just a couple of months ago. Well, cower Middleton is a political correspondent with the Saturday paper and camera, and she joins me now at welcome to the program, Karen, and I'm assuming Scott Morrison is is somewhat worried. Just a little bit. In fact, I think I've been getting exponentially more worried in the last week will say there's a very high profile independent who is sort of conservatively inclined the liberal party. Of course, the governing liberal party is a conservative Patty which the bit confusing to start off with. And then there's an independent by the name of Dr Karen Philps a Medica who lives in the electric of Wentworth. He's gonna very high profile. She's also been abroad Kosta as well as a health commentator, and she is running as an independent in that state, and she is now the favorite to win. So there's a lot of jostling, the governing liberal party ruling party is being throwing a lot of money at advertising in the last week. And just in the last twenty four hours, the prime minister, Scott Morrison started lowering expectations that do tend to do that ahead of the bollocks in any way, the idea being the east side to the people that would normally vote for you who might be thinking about giving you a bit of a KiKi in protest. You can't afford to do that. John don't do. We really need you. So there's. A bit of expectations management always. But I, I think there is also a sense that they might genuine be they in trouble. So what happens if the season's has lost the? Are we talking about a cops and the government, or do they try? And you know, clam borough as a minority administration or actually quite a minority because it would be well, it will be a minority witness. Yes, yes. So then we'll try to govern in minority that has happened in the strategy before after one of those other coups when Julia Gillard ousted Kevin rod about ten years ago, when my ten years he's going to, she didn't went to an election and ended up governing in minority with the support of the greens and some independence. So Mr. Morrison would be faced with having to do that in the house of representatives industry which determines who's in government. There are now six independence, so he would be seeking to govern with the support of some of those independence who might be conservatively leaning that would have to guarantee confidence in the government and supply will guarantee that they wouldn't block supply. And then. He would have to try and govern on that basis. We have to have a federal election by the middle of next may according to our legislated elect electoral title. So it wouldn't be very long. He would have to govern lock that, but it will be a challenge in terms of trying to get legislation through looking as what's on the minds of voters in Wentworth this weekend. To what extent you think they're influenced by the the national picture of them, the local picture, and they're feeling quite powerful. Well, it's an interesting combination of the both things. I think there's a fair bit of anger about the removal of Malcolm Turnbull. He was a very popular member. It's a wealthy suburb. He said, wealthy electric. It includes the famous Bonda bake, and it's a very strongly conservative, voting electric has been that y since the nineteen forties.

An enquiring mind, a mind that wanted to pass on that knowledge, a mind that wanted to explore the boundaries. I don't know if you know this, but James t Kirk from Star Trek. Was actually is not kidding, was modelled on James Cook as scientists you'd go where we haven't been before you dare to imagine the things that others haven't now it's true. I actually do have a science degree. It's true. What I hate to disappoint you is an applied science. Social sciences is an economic geography, but that's it. The is on is what I used to put on the card many, many years ago. And I've always felt like I should have changed it to something else because I never really thought of it in the same way as those of you do here, but I was passionate and I was interested and I did believe, and I did wanna learn, and I did want to know the prime minister, Scott Morrison skirmish did not wear a fluoro- jacket or white coat, but he wasn't character as you heard with that boffin business and was pleased to greet. The main winner of the science prize emerges professor Kurt limbic from the new, the man for whom the earth moved as the papers put it on Thursday, but Kurt had an unlikely beginning in Wollongong New South Wales a family with little money and only a bit of a fluke that got him started back in the fifties? Yes, spent a one gong high school, and that was probably the best thing that happened to me at that point because it was a selective high school. And I think essentially a good. System of education where I suddenly learned lots of things that I hadn't even thought about science. Okay. Yes, it was my introduction to signs, physics was particularly well taught. It was a lot of experiments. It was one class where the girls so you could actually concentrate on the physics. Did you find the goals distracting then how do you expect me on? So. Enjoy their company. And then when you decide to get to the university of New South Wales surveying was your course how come my headmaster didn't have much hope for my future. I think I did reasonably well at school, but he didn't seem to think of us up too much good. And he recommended I should learn a trade or something about my first job was in the port Campbell steelworks I was going to be trained as Mitch, religious, and in those days worked unity. And did you study sit nights? And I've found working in the steelwork environment into blast furnaces UP the at the coalface of taking your samples out doing and how is this? I really didn't see much of a career there. So I was offered a job as a trainee surveyor with a local surveyor in woollen gong. And I did that for a while. And again, I saw no real prospects air. I guess what was happening to me was that I was beginning to see that there was more than live than what I'd been used to. And I was searching for something to get out of a if you like, and I saw advertisements by the New South Wales government's department of civil Lance and main roads and water board calling for young people who wants to be surveyors and they would put him through university,.

"You're listening to the week ahead from the economist next up Australia where it's just been announced that Scott Morrison is to be the new prime minister off Markham terminal was false down in a leadership contest. Mr. tone Bill was the full Australian Prime minister to be ousted in a decade. Having himself being the beneficiary is such a coup in two thousand fifteen to discuss the situation. I'm joined on the phone from Sydney by Eleanor Whitehead, feel stray Leah and New Zealand correspondent for the economist. Hello, Elena. Hello. So what's going on? How did this come about? Well, it's happened incredibly quickly this week, literally lost week. Malcolm Turnbull who's the the outgoing prime minister controlled command of his party by Monday. It was apparent that he was losing control and on the twenty second August, the was a leadership challenge mounted against him by the former home affairs minister Peter Dutton, who had the backing of a right wing faction if the party. Now that was seen why tumble on Tuesday, but he hemorrhaged support after that. So by yesterday, the last of his allies had deserted him. So today he was forced to cool another spill Australians cool. It which precipitates vote on the leadership in the party room where Mr. dozen the original challenger was challenged by Scott Morrison, the former treasurer and Julie Bishop who is foreign minister. Okay. So what issue here? Why did his party ternal Mr. turntable. It should deep running factional issue. Mr. Dustin had the king, all a right wing faction of the party which believes ideologically that the liberal party had shifted to fall to the left and had abandoned its cool membership on the Mr. tumbles leadership will policies were they objecting to Wofford Mr. Turnbull done. So wrong in their is the most recent example was an energy policy cool. The national energy guarantee which Mr. been trying to push through now. It included legislating for emissions reductions from the energy sector, which the right wing section of the party, the fall right faction Audie logically opposed and Mr. tumble was forced to backtrack on that legislation which precipitated this crisis. Another example would be, for instance to say. Same sex marriage plebiscite which happened last year in Australia. Mr. tumble with scenes of dragged the party to fall to the left on social moral issues. So what's being the reaction in Australia? I guess a lot of voters must be rather the wilted by office. I think it's happened safe off that people are still trying to process exactly what's taken place. One interesting thing about this spill motion is that it's happened as you mentioned several times in in the past decade. In the past instances, it's always happened with the challenger who was more popular according to the polls than the incumbent. Even if that challenge it went on to lose the following election, they still looks like they had a better chance. In this case, that's not the case tumble with still the most popular candidate was probably the party's best chance of victory in an election which is ju- by may. So why strain in politics. So volatile, lot of prime ministers of enjoyed very long. Periods in office in the past. So now it's all topsy-turvy. It's right. It wasn't always that way. There was a quarter of a century until two thousand seven when Australia had just three prime ministers. The loss of this was was John Howard. He was a conservative who said three times ending in two thousand and seven. It's hard to tell because you nothing within the system has has really changed. One reason given by some observers is strata has incredibly short parliamentary terms that just three years among the shortest in the world. And that means that when you vote in government, they might have year to think about policy before one. I goes forward to the next electoral cycle and that has made the politics hit. Quite reactive. Leaders tend to have a close eye on the polls as they approach elections and parties can feel that if they replace a leader whose popularity is dwindling, they might have a better hope in forthcoming elections, but that hasn't always proof. Moved to be the case. Some people think it's kind of become a cultural practice over the past decade precipitated by poor leadership decisions. So Austrailia is awaiting a kind of reforming leader. He can break the cycle. Thank you very much..
