Interview with Laura Tingle, In Search of Good Government

Laura Tingle, author and political editor of the Australian Financial Review, joined me on Uncommon Sense to discuss her new book of selected essays, ‘In Search Of Good Government’. We delved into Laura’s Quarterly Essay, ‘Great Expectations’ which looks at why we are so angry with our politicians, including how and why they don’t and can’t possibly meet our expectations of state paternalism. Plus we talk about Laura’s new essay on Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, which challenges the dominant narrative that his government is adrift and rudderless.
