We’d like to welcome you to INQ, Crikey’s ambitious new inquiry journalism initiative. Starting June 24, INQ investigative reporting — lifting the rocks, connecting the dots, following the money trail and exposing misuse of power — will appear regularly in Crikey.
We look forward to sharing this exciting new phase with you.

Record youth enrolment means tens of thousands of new young voters are waiting to be spoken for. Meanwhile the Coalition isn't even trying to hide its contempt.
By embracing Pauline Hanson and her party, the Nationals have turned their backs on the best part of their legacy and are openly enabling racism and the growing threat of white supremacism.
The Nationals are now doing what the Liberals did last year — using climate policy as a weapon in their leadership battles. But at least they're honest about their climate denialism.
Good morning, early birds. Barnaby Joyce has threatened the relationship status of the LNP over the Liberals' dismissal of coal plants, and Labor pledges a number of infrastructure and business-boosting initiatives. It's the news you need to know, with Chris Woods.
As federal Nationals whisper of a pre-election leadership spill, the NSW branch has its own share of problems in the imminent state election.
Good morning, early birds. Nationals leader Michael McCormack faces rumours of a fresh leadership scare, and a child asylum seeker allegedly assaulted on Nauru sues the Commonwealth over failure to uphold duty of care. It's the news you need to know, with Chris Woods.
This is the second time this year that a Nationals leader has kept a sex scandal from the Prime Minister, ensuring it wreaked havoc. Will they ever be held accountable?
No need to bother with the business case when it comes to Nationals-administered grants programs, it seems.
A sixth leadership change in the Coalition since it was elected to office five years ago will be the perfect signal to voters that everything they hate about politics is true.
