He’s slippery, he’s dishonest, he’s the PM: meet Crikey’s 2021 Arsehat of the Year
Scott Morrison did enough in a single week to earn himself the title.
In a year of deception, one voice stood out. Grace Tame is Crikey’s Person of the Year
Tame's ability to give voice to the voiceless and hold the powerful to account has earned her Crikey's highest honour.
2021’s days are numbered. 2022, however, is just lying in wait…
The new year is just around the corner and all bets are off.
What and who will shape the United States next year?
The stakes are high for the US in 2022. But with Republicans trying to rig future elections, it's not only America on tenterhooks. The world is too.
Farewell, 2021. Just what did you do for us?
We entered the year with high hopes, or at least guarded optimism. So let's look back at what the year gave us... and what it took away.
Why are proxy advisers still in Frydenberg’s firing line? They were right about Magellan
Magellan Financial Group's troubles were predicted by proxy advisers, which makes it all the stranger that the treasurer still wants to kneecap the industry.
2021: the year the bastions of male privilege finally started to crumble
Enough was enough, and female voices too long silenced were finally heard and reckoned with.
Do you want the good news or the bad? Well, you’ll be lucky to get either
Journalism has a vital role in Australia and around the world. But when it's weak and lazy it does democracy a great disservice.
Tobacco taxes are tapped out but we shouldn’t follow NZ’s ban. Here’s why
Prohibition is the best friend of organised crime and a dangerous idea. Besides, quitting smoking is a new global trend.
Josh Frydenberg has embraced ‘big government’ — and that’s a good thing
The treasurer has sensibly moved the government's position from cutting a way to surplus to growing a way there.
Surging case numbers were to be expected, so why are we so unprepared?
Easing social restrictions and missing opportunities to test prior to the holiday season are just the latest examples of government incompetence.
Living with COVID, staying home for Christmas — and hoping for the best
We may have supposedly reached the no-lockdown, 'living with COVID' stage of the pandemic, but Australians' idea of hospitality this Christmas involves staying in and keeping safe.
Climate lies: countries are trying to dupe the UN on emissions data
A startling new report has shown how many countries are misreporting emissions data and pushing flawed models. What else are big polluters trying to get away with?
Never mind climate plan nonsense — feel the politics. (And the press gallery falls for it)
The media seem to have decided the climate policy is second in importance to whether Scott Morrison can pull off another election win.
Our environmental failures go further than net zero. They begin in our backyard
It's not just our inaction on climate change: our governments' reluctance to listen to the experts or spend much-needed money on conservation has us doing other kinds of environmental damage too.
Scott Morrison’s year of lying dangerously
Since Crikey published its initial dossier of Scott Morrison's lies in May 2021, the number of untruths uttered by the prime minister has continued to grow — as has his reputation for mendacity.
A glimpse of a post-democratic Australia
Soon you might have to pay to email your MP, fossil fuel companies will have a Voice to Parliament, pork-barrelling will be standard and Indigenous recognition will still be a matter for the next parliamentary term. Couldn't happen? See for yourself...
An outbreak of truthiness from Scott Morrison served to normalise rorts
The PM has blown a hole in the old maxim 'cheaters never prosper' — and he's not ashamed to admit it. In fact, he's damn proud of it.
Where’s Hillary Bray when you need him? He’d be in seventh heaven with this stuff
Oh, how our former satirist would relish wiping the smug and pompous smirks off the good, the bad and the ugly faces of politics today.
A Murdoch consigliere to run the ACCC? How very Australian — and very wrong
Gina Cass-Gottlieb is more than just a mate of the Murdochs. She's a director of the family trust. It's highly improper for her to head up the competition regulator.
Not all anti-vaxxers are equal: some just need better messaging
Vaccine hesitancy is a combination of emotional, social and cultural problems and changing minds should be done with care and sensitivity.
Bumbling Boris finally loses his electoral charm as cronyism and dishonesty catch up
The British prime minister’s shining political star seems to be dimming — and Conservative prospects with it.
Trade-off: why military alliances always play second fiddle to economic alliances
While the US and Australia build up military partnerships in the short term, history shows that economic ties are the ones that truly bind.
Food for thought: environmentally friendly goodies that will soon grace your plate
Expect a culinary adventure — but one that could take a little bit of getting used to for the less intrepid eaters among us.
Taking a walk on the rewild side: is it time for a new approach to conservation?
As passive conservation efforts become less and less sufficient, is it time to take a step back and let nature take its turn?
European mafia gets filthy rich in scams costing up to 2% of EU’s total budget
Organised crime groups have an estimated £7tn in offshore tax havens — enough to offset the costs of the pandemic in the EU.
Rudd: Morrison should not be attacked for his faith. But he should tell us how it affects his politics
It's not unreasonable or intrusive for Australians to ask how Scott Morrison's religious faith impacts on his political behaviour and decision-making, writes former prime minister Kevin Rudd.
It’s time to call it out: Scott Morrison doesn’t care about secular accountability
In a new series, Crikey asks: what governs Scott Morrison? A dedication to Australia, or a dedication to his own faith — and above all, himself?
The good word: a compendium of Scott Morrison’s godly quotes
The PM has never shied away from making his faith known, but it's the cryptic references — the hidden meanings — that speak volumes about his mentality.
‘Without truth, no democracy can stand’: why we are calling out the prime minister
Today Crikey publishes an uncomfortable but important investigation that exposes the prime minister as a systemic, consistent and unremitting public liar.
A national leader with a readiness to lie and a reflex to do so when under pressure
Scott Morrison lies. A lot. And it's particularly true when he's feeling the political heat.
As poetry seems to lose rhyme and reason, Edgar masters technique, complexity and vibrancy
In a time when the form seems to edge towards the commonplace, prize-winning Australia poet Stephen Edgar dares to be extraordinary.
Seeing Red, feeling Blue: pastiche pop and the power of the persona
New albums by Taylor Swift, a pop-music genius, and Lana Del Rey, a pop-culture project, illustrate two extremes of the musical spectrum.
Modernism is back in architecture. But it’s not all bad — really
If the Australian Institute of Architects Awards are anything to go by, modernism is back, baby. Guy Rundle reviews the good, the bad, and the mildly depressing.
We must learn to see the corruption that pervades Australian public life, and restructure it
Australians, and especially our governing class, have normalised soft corruption. If we want things to change, we need to bring back the outrage.
