It's been a tough few years. We've had a few too many PMs (three in four years), a cricket crisis, aka Sandpapergate, our own #Metoo moments - you know who you are - the Murray-Darling Fish Kill and, shockingly, the cancellation of both the NRL and AFL footy shows. In this penetrating and incisive book, The Betoota Advocate editors Clancy Overell and Errol Parker, along with their dedicated team of journalists, take us on the nation's journey through chaos and confusion, to the start of a new era. Now is the time, they argue, when we the nation get to choose who will lead our country for an entire federal term. When cricketers use talent and skill to win matches. When the culture wars come to an end. And when common sense prevails. That's right, with a sensible Liberal government, a charismatic PM and a united, strong and experienced cabinet in place, we are well on the road to economic stability and environmental renewal. Join Australia's most trusted newspaper, from the remote but vibrant town of Betoota, as we detail the last four years in news. How bad things got, and how lucky we, as a nation, have been to survive it all. How Good's Australia.
