Q&A – Monday 26 July

For those of you who do not watch the ABC on a Monday night, I would like to inform you that you are all missing out! It is during this time slot at 9:30 that one of the best political shows airs. If you think politics is all boring the you have to watch Q&A. This show is what The Great Debate should have been. Interesting, unscripted, engaging and entertaining. You just have to watch how well it trends on Twitter (#qanda) to see the audience that it reaches.

Indeed the show was that good tonight that i&m writing a blog post about it. If I were able to vote at this election I would have picked Rudd the Turnbull then Gillard then Abbott which is interesting. Turnbull tonight was on fire! His performance was simply amazing. Penny Wong also did fantastically.

I’m not quite sure if I should be scared that I actually agree with pretty much everything Turnbull says. He’s more Labor in some aspects than Gillard! I completely agree with the fact that we need a market based system to control emissions and that economic growth in the long term will only be achieved through sustainable environmental management. We shouldn’t be the world’s mine and we seriously need to reform our economy and diversify our export base before it’s too late.

It’s getting too hard to type this blog post on my phone but you can, and I highly recommend you do, watch it online at www.abc.net.au/qanda or do so on iView if it is unmetered for you.

Julia Gillard is the best out of two bad options. I wish it were either Turnbull or Rudd…
