Q+A discusses a cautious reopening with Virginia Trioli

Advertisement

This week on Q+A – A cautious reopening. Finding the right balance as Australia takes a major step closer to living with COVID-19.

After months of stay-at-home orders, lockdown is ending for residents of greater Sydney. Will NSW lead the rest of Australia out of the pandemic? With home quarantine programs starting around the nation, the PM is talking up plans to fast-track the return of international travel.

Does this mean we’ll be allowed overseas before interstate in some instances?  

Meanwhile, Australia’s climate policy is being thrashed out this week as the Federal Liberal and National parties try to reach a deal before the upcoming Glasgow climate talks. As business groups and other stakeholders add their voices to the debate, can our political leaders deliver a convincing plan?

And political transparency has been thrust into the spotlight after the sudden resignation of NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian and branch stacking allegations surfacing in Victoria. Now a new documentary, ‘Big Deal’, directed by Craig Reucassel, examines Australia’s billion-dollar political lobbying industry. Is our democracy for sale?
