Nevertheless this won’t resolve the central problem the opposition has – that it’s going to spend up big in the next four years (should it win government) before reducing the deficit. That plan could put the nation’s credit rating at risk, several economists have warned, which means Labor risks upsetting its own supporters for a financial plan that its critics will find it easy to attack.

On the other hand, it’s pretty incredible that Labor has taken so many risks – like finally acknowledging the so-called Schoolkids Bonus handout are not affordable – and gotten away with it. Long-term, with Turnbull expected to win the election, this retreat from the Swan-Macklin era of “economics”, helps Shadow Treasurer Chris Bowen. It adds to his credentials as a serious economic head in the party, though it’s difficult to see if the left will be able to stage a takeover of the party if and when he becomes leader.

Interesting data from Fairfax’s YourVote tool on the leaders’ empathy and capability ratings.

Bit creepy but what you’d instinctively suspect – dumped MP Dennis Jensen has blown the whistle on the tracking software the Liberal party uses to log every single interaction a constituent has with their MP.

Malcolm Turnbull gave a speech on foreign policy to the US Studies Centre in Sydney.  He said the US is becoming more important as the global centre of gravity shifts to Asia. Fergus Hunter’s report for the Sydney Morning Heraldhere.

Rob Oakeshott is reported to be considering a political comeback in NSW state politics. As he did in 2010, he’s keeping everyone guessing, but we’ll know today when the Electoral Commission releases the names of those who have nominated.

Malcolm Turnbull’s plan to clear out the Senate could backfire and elevate Nick Xenophon’s bid to win lower house seats and a running more (or more) in the Senate. Xenophon is no-comment when asked which side he will back in the event of a hung parliament. Good chat between press gallery veteran Michelle Grattan and Mr X here. 3. Brexit

(That’s a big insult!) Having listened carefully to both sides of the debate, I believe our NHS & research will be safer if Britain remains in the EU— Sarah Wollaston MP (@sarahwollaston) June 8, 2016Of course I understand that politicians are not allowed to change their minds but real people do— Sarah Wollaston MP (@sarahwollaston) June 8, 2016

Over at the right-wing Breitbart, the conspiracy is that Sarah Woollaston’s defection was planted by David Cameron right from the start!
