LibDems candidates Damian Coory and Topher Field join us to dissect what Australian electorates are thinking. Matt challenged both of them on their integrity and consistency, and why they are so confident of an increased result for minor parties.

We talked about preferences, parachuting candidates into seats, previous and future results for minor parties, the myth of the Greens being an environmental party, the ‘Teal’ climate obsessed candidates worrying the Liberals, the hypocrisy of Campbell Newman, changing your mind in politics, pork barrelling, and how to discern a good politician.
