"Nothing to see here," said Scomo, following misconduct allegations over Angus Taylor allegedly trying to influence Josh Frydenberg to weaken laws to escape prosecution by a company he part owns.
"Labor, Labor, Labor, Labor, Labor". This is a direct quote from the epic interview of Barnaby Joyce by Patricia Karvelas on ABC Radio last week. As is, "Labor, Labor, Labor, Labor". Michael West reports on the unfolding #Watergate saga.
It is extraordinary that the profit from Barnaby Joyce's record payment for Australian water rights, an $80 million payment of taxpayers' money, found its way to a company in the Cayman Islands which had been set up by Angus Taylor, a company at which Taylor had been a director for six years
The Climate Solutions Fund is a fillip for the Government's fossil fuel backers and offers little in the way of energy policy reform to reduce either Australia's emissions or power prices. Tim Buckley reports.
As Donald Trump would say, nobody does an announcement like Scott Morrison, nobody. Is there any substance to the US oil storage deal which was so praised by the PM and his energy minister Angus Taylor?
New documents show the government negotiated the controversial $80m Watergate deal directly with the Cayman Islands company founded by Energy Minister Angus Taylor. The Department failed to notify the Senate.

Angus Taylor’s rescue package for the oil industry is a testament to governments getting gamed by large corporations.

Unfortunately, the government was guided by a later, far higher valuation for the controversial water rights. Jommy Tee's latest investigation is further compelling evidence of the drastic need for a federal corruption commission with teeth.
Australia's carbon-belching future is surely being sealed by the Coalition with the acquiescence of Labor. As the world turns from coal, gas is almost as toxic for the climate. Callum Foote reports on Labor's capture by the gas lobby capture while Angus Taylor appoints Macquarie's Shemara Wikramanayake and former Origin chief Grant King to advise on his Energy Roadmap even though they are smack-bang in the middle of a billion-dollar gas deal.
The Coalition paid the tax haven-linked Eastern Australia Agriculture nearly double what independent valuers recommended for water licences. Most of the record $80 million from the sale ended up with a Cayman Islands company established by Energy Minister Angus Taylor. Investigative journalist Kerry Brewster has this exclusive report.
