Topic: Canberra – More a Cone than a bubble: the life and times of an ex-pollie in The Cone
In a non-partisan way, a discussion of the ‘parliamentary circle of life’ – public perceptions, the truths and myths of the place, personality politics and the media, the role of the media in reporting and shaping the political agenda, a day-in-the-life-of an ‘ordinary’ MP, and anything else that tickles the fancy of participants in the group discussion.
What to bring: Questions, willingness to discuss, and a biro or pencil.
