Anti-politics

Sunday, 9 June 2019 - 11:00am to 11:30am

On this week's show we’re analysing the federal election with Elizabeth Humphrys. With growing distrust of politicians and disillusionment with the electoral system, how does the environment movement engage with anti-politics?

For many, the victory of the Liberal-National Coalition at the federal election was crushing. With the polls pointing to a Labor win, their failure has lead to a scatter-fire of recriminations. But votes for the two main parties have been falling for years - and disillusionment with established politics has been on the rise. How do we make sense of these anti-political times?
