On this week’s Democracy Sausage podcast we take a look at the new ANU poll on Australia’s election, ask who is benefiting from the country’s productivity gains, and discuss where next for Boris Johnson after parliament rebelled against him.

On this Democracy Sausage, we find out what the recent ANU poll tells us about why Australia voted for the Coalition’s solo act over Labor’s symphony of policies, run the numbers on the Australian economy, and ask whether Boris Johnson has any Brexit bite to go with the bluster. Mark Kenny and our panel – Nicholas Biddle, Quentin Grafton, and Julia Ahrens – also take a look at the rise of the right in Germany, answer some of your questions and comments, and Mark shares his tweet of the week.
