2016 Election Special

'A New Way', 'Choose Real Change', 'Together: Let's Move Australia Forward', 'End the waste, pay back the debt, stop the big new taxes, stop the boats’

Slogans from the 2013 and 2010 elections from the ALP and LNP with some needing bigger boards than others.

Nearly 30 years since the last this looks likely to be the seventh double dissolution of the Australian parliament. With the exit of the Member for Fairfax, what will what's left of the Palmer United Party do next?

Doggy death threats and expense scandals. Negative gearing, housing affordability and the Pacific Solution, plus marriage equality and superannuation reform. What will be remembered and what will be forgotten? What do you know and what do you want to know?

Get behind the buzzwords, gaffes and zingers to find out just what this year's federal election is really about, with our expert commentators Paul Bongiorno and Bevan Shields in what promises to be a lively discussion chaired by Australian Prime Ministers' Centre fellow, author and journalist Chris Wallace.

Tickets: $10 (includes a glass of wine or soft drink)
