Forum - INSIDERS: Making sense of Canberra’s chaos

Insiders, with veteran political observer Barrie Cassidy, will again dissect Canberra politics. ,

In 2010 Barrie was uncanny in predicting Kevin Rudd’s imminent demise – it happened later that week! So what do Barrie and his expert panel think 2012 holds?

With Labor Party leadership questions settled for now, a minority government holding power with the slimmest of margins, a rampant Opposition and increasingly confident Opposition Leader, Barrie declared at program deadline that nominating a topic for discussion, four months away, was impossible. The only certainty, he said, is that chaos in one form or another will continue.

Barrie will be joined the Sydney Daily Telegraph’s Malcolm Farr; the Sydney Morning Herald’s National Affairs correspondent Lenore Taylor; and Dennis Atkins of The Courier-Mail.

As usual, there will be an acerbically entertaining video reel of the highlights (and lowlights) of latest developments in Federal politics.
