    BONUS EPISODE: Why was Whitlam really sacked?

    How much do you really know about the sacking of Gough Whitlam on November 11, 1975?

    You've probably heard his famous "well may we say" speech made on the day he was dismissed.

    But do you properly understand the extraordinary events leading up to the most dramatic day in Australian political history? How did it happen?

    For this bonus episode of The Party Room, award-winning ABC journalist Alex Mann joins Fran and PK to tell them all about his new podcast The Eleventh.

    It's all about the story about what happened November 11, 1975.

    That's a really good question!

    That's a really good question!

    On The Party Room this week, Fran and PK wonder what the Government is up to on climate change.

    A possible new climate policy has been reported in the papers, but the PM is refusing to say if it's actually a thing.

    Sydney Morning Herald political and international editor Peter Hartcher joins them to offer his two cents on how he reckons China has played Australia on Coronavirus.

    And why do politicians always say "that's a really good question"? Are they just being polite or is there another reason?

    Guerrilla warfare in the midst

    Guerrilla warfare in the midst

    Guerrilla warfare has broken out in the Nationals' party room.

    On Monday, Llew O'Brien quit the LNP and defected to the Liberals.

    Then in a surprise and embarrassing twist for the Government, he was elected as Parliament's Deputy Speaker with Labor's help.

    And it's not over for the Nats, with talk of another leadership spill.

    7.30's Chief Political Correspondent Laura Tingle joins The Party Room podcast this week.

    Nationals tears over climate fears

    Nationals tears over climate fears

    The year's first week of Parliament has not been as expected.

    With Tuesday set aside for tributes and condolence motions for those who have lost their lives in the bushfires, the Nationals had a leadership spill.

    It may have been Bridget McKenzie's resignation over the sports rorts saga which prompted the vote, but it's laid bare "the climate wars" within the Nats and Coalition more broadly.

    Political Editor for the Australian Financial Review Phil Coorey joins Fran and PK in The Party Room.

    Wild weather, wilder politics

    Wild weather, wilder politics

    The country has not had a good start to 2020 and neither has the Federal Government.

    Prime Minister Scott Morrison felt the community anger firsthand when he visited bushfire ravaged South Coast NSW.

    And after his National Press Club address this week, he felt the heat from journalists over the sports rorts saga.

    And outlined plans to try to give the Federal Government more powers to deal with natural disasters in the future.

    All this as another challenge for the country emerges: coronavirus.

    ABC Insiders host David Speers joins Fran and PK for a bumper first episode of The Party Room for 2020.

    Secret deal or no secret deal?

    Secret deal or no secret deal?

    Ending the parliamentary year on a high note, the Government successfully repealed medevac legislation.

    Senator Jacqui Lambie controversially helped the Government get it across the line.

    Senator Lambie maintains a deal was done, but the Government insists there was no deal.

    Meanwhile, US author Naomi Wolf is pursuing Energy Minister Angus Taylor over his maiden speech to parliament.

    ABC's national affairs correspondent Greg Jennett joins Fran and PK on their final episode of The Party Room for the year.

Great for expatriates

The Party Room is ideal to keep up with Federal politics for anyone living abroad. Could provide more insight by occasionally turning attention to key State politics events.
