      In the last little while I’ve had to ring people around the country and listen to what they have to say about a project I’m managing. I’m struck by how useful the process it is and how much people like talking about a topic in which they have expertise and care about. Most/all of them are very busy people but it’s usually me who has to find a way of ending the conversation. It’s made a big difference to the running of the project too. Now I know this insight is not rocket science, and [...]

      Reading Catch and Kill, the Politics of Power serves as a good reminder of why – even though I’m interested in politics – I chose never to enter politics or even to join a political party. It’s just too feral for my taste…Catch and Kill (a remarkably silly title except for a crime novel IMO) is an analysis of the Bracks-Brumby Labor government in Victoria (1999-2010), a government which like the current Andrews government won power when it was never expected to, and surprised us all by [...]

      Quite an interesting book for anyone who lived in Victoria during the Bracks years and interested in politics. A very powerful start and ending, unfortunately quite a bit in the middle taken up with "And then the government released another policy paper" (boring). Delighted to find a few people I know personally feature in the book. And now have a much better (depressingly so) understanding of how the Labor party works and how insular the whole political game is.

      This book was quite an easy read. It blended the style of a biography and history. The book focuses on the Labor parties rise to power in Victorian parliament by taking back power from the Liberal Kennet government. The book provided great insight into the way the Labor party operates with the factions, leadership tensions and successes. I found it very insightful for learning more about the key leaders of the Labor Victorian government: Bracks, Brumby, Hwaites for starters.

    5. David Donaldson

      A great book if you're interested in Victorian politics (the Brumby and Bracks years specifically) and policy (there's lots in there about Terry Moran's efforts to overhaul Victorian DPC and make it into an ideas generator rather than just an implementation coordinator). The stuff about Victoria creating a national leadership role for itself in the vacuum left by Howard's reluctance to push reforms after the GST is really interesting. And it's really well written.
