This is my assessment of the current political situation in Australia:
- Centre left: Turnbull Coalition. Where Labor was ten years ago.
- Extreme left: The Labor Party. Where the Greens were ten years ago.
- Sinister left: Greens. Proposing ever more extreme and dangerous policies.
- Somewhere on the left: Nick Xenophon. Also Jacqui Lambie, Derryn Hinch.
