Malcolm Turnbull’s career in Parliament has been over for years, but the Miserable Ghost continues to rattle his chains. We go over his government’s failures, like the higher taxes on superannuation funds that marred the 2016 Australian election, the scandalous spend on Australia’s new submarines, and the abandoned National Energy Guarantee.
As we reach the grim milestone of one whole year of lockdowns, border closures and more, we take a look back on the early expert medical advice at the beginning of the pandemic.

And Covers Editor Sarah Dudley shows us the two-headed beast on this week’s cover.
