Another week another crisis for the conservative Abbott-led government with the announcement of the Commission of Audit* and the continued 'leaks' of budget information - all of this ahead of the nation's budget being handed down on May 13.

Worst of all though is this conservative government is persisting with austerity measures despite all the evidence saying such measures are unnecessary.

Then the nation finds out the Prime Minister, after accepting the olive branch from Indonesia's President to meet to help repair relations, has cancelled his trip to Bali. It's a very poor look and came about with minimal explanation as the reasons for cancelling the trip; leaving journalists and commentators wildly speculating about the reasons.

And of course Rant n Rave Radio's The Agenda will take a look at the situation in Ukraine as it looks like the country is edging ever closer to an ugly war.

Make sure you join in and share your thinking about these issues.

* The Commission of Audit was established by the Australian Government as an "independent body" to review and report on the performance, functions and roles of the federal government.
