Voice To Parliament Referendum Must Be Free And Fair For Everyone

“The revelation the Albanese Government hid special financial support for the ‘yes’ campaign for the Voice to Parliament in the Budget is further evidence that the deck is being stacked by Australia’s governing class on the referendum,” said Daniel Wild, Deputy Executive Director of the Institute of Public Affairs. Page 17 of Budget Paper Number No. 2 shows the Federal

Labor Living In Cloud Cuckoo Land On Energy Policy Future

Affordable and reliable electricity is central to everything Australia does. But in pursuit of a policy of net-zero emissions by 2050, the new federal Labor government has doubled down on policies that will further undermine the reliability and affordability of our electricity supply system. Labor’s Rewiring the Nation policy boasts that renewables will constitute 82 per cent of the capacity

IPA Research: Labor’s Net Zero Bill To Open Green Lawfare Floodgates – $100BN In Projects At Risk

“Labor’s net zero legislation will unleash a torrent of legal activism by green groups that risks shutting down critical natural resources projects at the time Australia is in the midst of an energy crisis” said Daniel Wild, the Deputy Executive Director at the Institute of Public Affairs.

Net Zero Will Be The New Zero-COVID

Net Zero Will Be The New Zero-COVID

The massive protest vote against Labor in the Melbourne outer-suburbs shows us why there are growing calls for Daniel Andrews to step down as Victorian Labor leader

Business Has Gone Woke – So Libs Should Focus On Dandenong Not Davos

The automatic and close relationship between the centre-right of politics and big business is over. Anthony Albanese’s election victory has prompted all sorts of interesting reactions. Apparently, company boards should now start purging their ranks of “right-wingers”. That’s the view of Graeme Bricknell of

Net Zero Means ‘No Coal’

The reality has finally dawned on Labor that Net Zero means no new coal projects. This is something that the Greens and the Climate Council have been saying for years and is the reason why Adam Bandt has consistently been pushing to put a stop to all new fossil fuel projects throughout the country. The Australian Financial Review reported that in a

“There is now a significant groundswell of support in the community for the Prime Minister to dump net zero ahead of the election to save regional jobs and bolster national defence,” said Daniel Wild, Director of Research at the Institute of Public Affairs.
