Crikey’s indefatigable politics editor Bernard Keane is taking a rare and well-deserved break. In his absence, the Crikey team will be joined by dual Walkley Award-winner and former political editor for The Australian Financial Review Tony Walker. Tony is a regular columnist with Fairfax Media and a vice-chancellor’s fellow at La Trobe University. He’ll be covering all things federal politics for us while Bernard is away, and the rest of us here in the bunker look forward to razzing the men in grey suits with him.
