    The Agenda: Turbulence returns for Abbott Government and data retention

    in Politics Progressive

    Australia's federal government after hitting the reset button (again) are finding themselves once again facing turbulent times. Not long after the fever-pitch of a leadership spill the leaks started again. It seems that this government with the current leadership cannot or will not accept that they need to change the style. 

    And on top of the turbulence in the Abbott Government, it turns out the so-called progressive Labor Party will acquiesce to the ruling government on data retention and further destroy Australians civil liberties.

    Join the team as they vent their spleen. It's always more fun with you!
