So much mystery and intrigue! Liberal Democratic Senator David Leyonhjelm is convinced there are spies in his party leaking information. After an email outlining plans to replace his former staffer Helen Dale were leaked to Crikey, he told Sky News that is was a serious concern for the Liberal Democrats, and there was “a spy in our midst”. He suggested it could be someone leaking from the Liberal Democrats to the Liberal Party … something to do with having such a similar name. Perhaps it’s an innocent mistake, and all this time someone working in the Liberal Democrats actually thought they were working for the Liberals?

Our media landscape is amongst the most concentrated in the democratic world. Big media businesses are marred by big media interests. If you want the full, untainted picture on important issues — our environment, corruption, political competence, our culture, our economy — Crikey is required reading.

I am a private person that takes online privacy very seriously but I wanted to contribute my words to this campaign as I genuinely believe that we will improve as a country if more people read publications such as Crikey.
