Sue Ellery discusses solutions to WA's looming teacher shortage

The skills crisis which has hit every section of the Australian economy is hurting our school classrooms. The plan to tackle the nation's teacher shortage prompted the Albanese Government to announce a jobs and skills summit in Canberra next month. Business identities, union leaders, politicians and public servants will spend two days in Canberra trying to come up with solutions to the skills crisis, which has the economy in a chokehold. WA Education Minister Sue Ellery joined other state education ministers last week in Canberra to discuss the best ways to tackle the teacher shortage ahead of next month's summit. "It was a good meeting, a breath of fresh air because the Commonwealth was willing to assist the states," she said. "We're all at various stages on this issue Liam, my colleagues in NSW and Victoria are doing it far tougher than we are, for example I'm advised in Victoria now they are rostering cohorts of kids to do schooling at home once a week just because they don't have enough teachers to fill classrooms, and NSW has advised they will do that as well if they need to."

Governor-General an innocent party in ScoMo's stealth cabinet move

A prominent constitutional lawyer says revelations former Prime Minister Scott Morrison swore himself into five portfolios is a "bizarre and strange thing to do", given Governor-General David Hurley is able to appoint two ministers to the same portfolio. "The Governor-General acts on advice, he has no choice but to act on it... so in a funny way, the most important thing about this is that Morrison seems to have succeeded in embarrassing the Crown, which is almost the first duty of a minister not to do," Professor Greg Craven, vice chancellor of Australian Catholic University, told Liam Bartlett on . “Turns out he was the world’s first stealth bulldozer.” See omnystudio.com/listener https://omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Liam Bartlett: Calls for accountability after 11 ministers 'nabbed' breaking road rules

LIAM BARTLETT HAS CALLED OUT WA GOVERNMENT MINISTERS WHO HE SAYS PUSH ROAD SAFETY BUT AREN'T TAKING THE RULES SERIOUSLY THEMSELVES. The  presenter has questioned whether there should be further consequences for ministers who break the road law. "Now remember, many of these ministers of the crown spend less time behind the wheel themselves than mere mortals like you and me," he stated. "And yet many of them have still managed to rack up multiple fines across multiple years." Bartlett also questioned the fact that the Independent Road Safety Commissioner Adrian Warner could not speak about the issue on the program.

Perth Children’s Hospital CEO's resignation 'worrying' ahead of coronial inquest in Aishwarya's death

The long-time family advocate of seven-year-old Aishwarya Aswath, who tragically died of a bacterial infection after waiting hours to see a doctor at Perth Children’s Hospital, has raised concerns after the resignation of Perth Children's Hospital CEO Aresh Anwar just 12 days before an coronial inquest into the young girl's death. Suresh Rajan said the evidence of Dr Anwar, the bureaucrat in charge of WA's child health division when Aishwarya died, was critical to the coronial inquest but his resignation meant his participation in the inquest was not guaranteed. Rajan told Liam Bartlett on he hoped Dr Anwar had not been made a scapegoat. "It's incredibly worrying," Rajan said of the resignation.

Tom Percy QC on Clive Palmer's legal obligation to Mark McGowan's lawyer

Billionaire Clive Palmer has been ordered to pay Mark McGowan’s legal costs from the moment he ignored an offer from the West Australian premier for both men to walk away from the litigation in December. The decision, made by Federal Court Justice Michael Lee on Thursday, means the mining magnate will bear the majority of the costs for the defamation trial proceedings, including McGowan’s high-profile lawyer, Bret Walker SC. Criminal barrister Tom Percy QC told host Liam Bartlett the WA Premier's lawyer in the defamation case cost upwards of $20,000 a day, See omnystudio.com/listener https://omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Subcontractors 'still exposed' on WA government projects

A report tabled today to State Parliament has found the State Government has done little in six years to protect subcontractors on projects. WA Auditor General Caroline Spencer told Liam Bartlett on that subcontractors on state government projects had benefited by successive reforms that increased protection for workers. "But subbies are still exposed on state government construction projects, because some of the reforms aren't being implemented by state government entities," she said. Some of the projects examined by the Auditor General included those at Perth Children's Hospital and ones being managed by Western Power.

'Stain on WA': State urged to ban Nazi swastika

Victoria was the first to take action on this, with NSW to follow, while Queensland and Tasmania have pledged to also prohibit the Nazi swastika symbol. Should WA also ban the hate symbol? Is it a freedom of speech issue, or does it go deeper than that? Dvir Abramovich, chairman of the Anti Defamation Commission and also Director of the Program in Jewish Culture and Society at the University of Melbourne, spoke to Liam Bartlett about why WA should take the opportunity to follow suit with other states and ban the symbol, as it's "the modern face of Hitler and a pure symbol of evil".

One Nation's early jousting over 'Indigenous voice to Parliament'

There's been more public jostling in preparation for the forthcoming referendum on an Indigenous voice to Parliament. Political and public figures on both sides continue the preemptive jousting on what it will mean and what ramifications may be, depending on which way the vote will go. In the latest strategic move, One Nation has taken the first step in the public relations war. Senator Pauline Hanson made it clear last week One Nation will spearhead the campaign for the ‘no’ vote, saying the ‘voice’ would be a step backwards for the Constitution and risked forever dividing the Australian people on race.

Armando's visa plight highlights hypocrisy of McGowan's skilled migrant trip to Italy

The airwaves have lit up with listeners sharing their difficulties with attracting and retaining skilled migrants. A taste of some of the frustrations of people dealing with immigration came after host Liam Bartlett heard from Armando Angelino, who works at Green Bunch Cafe in East Victoria Park thanks to a bridging visa, but is having difficulties attaining a different bridging visa – at a cost – that lets him leave the country for three months and return. He has criticised the WA Premier Mark McGowan, who is currently in Italy promoting skilled people to come to Perth for jobs. "They want money for everything. They're very good at taking money, they're very quick as well... but in terms of coming back to you, they even have the attitude of 'you have to sit and wait'," Armando told Bartlett.

Emma Thomson on working women being 'sold a pup'

British actress Dame Emma Thompson has opened up to Jane Marwick on about sex scenes with a man more than 30 years her junior and the misconceptions women should be expected to handle juggling domestic life and a career simultaneously. Thompson is in Australia to promote her new film a wryly comic two-hander directed by Australia’s Sophie Hyde, where she plays 60-ish widow Nancy Stokes, a retired religion teacher who has never had an orgasm. She and Marwick discussed the harm caused by depictions of conventional on-screen romance and how women "were sold a pup" about being able to juggle domestic life, motherhood and careers. "I think the 'you can have it all' thing was not only cruel but also utterly untrue, and I think we need to really re-examine all of this because it's all landed once again on our shoulders," Thompson told Marwick.

Foul-mouthed Clive Palmer abruptly ends interview

Clive Palmer has sensationally hung up on a bemused host Jane Marwick, in for Liam Bartlett today, after launching a tirade against the quality of . Using a profanity to describe the newspaper, Palmer denied a report he was launching new court action against WA Premier Mark McGowan and WA Attorney General John Quigley. Private texts that painted Palmer as a villain of WA between the newspaper's owner Kerry Stokes, Quigley and McGowan were famously made public during the recent defamation trial between the WA Premier and mining magnate. "You just concluded our interview, thanks a lot, bye," Palmer said, shocking host Marwick, who asked him not to swear on air. "There you go, Clive Palmer, so apparently he's doing nothing... I had plenty more questions to ask him but that's the Clive Palmer we've come to know," Marwick said after with a hint of bemusement.

Criticism over prime waterfront hotel linked to Twiggy Forrest

A liquor licence application for an Andrew Forrest-linked waterfront hotel on Hackett Drive dubbed Forrest on Swan in front of the University of WA has been panned because it was originally announced as accommodation for visiting academics. City of Perth Western Residents Association president Anna Vanderbom said the controversial $35 million, 66-room complex in Crawley was originally promoted as residences for “scholars and fellows”. "We would've thought that UWA would've learnt from the past, the university is about learning. If they went into history they would see that John Forrest, our first premier, was very supportive of respecting public space like Kings Park, without building it," she told Liam Bartlett on . "For his heir (Andrew Forrest) to take no interest in the river and it's protection is unbelievable... he's not following the tradition."
