Australia's oldest and favourite newspaper dissects the last decade of political turmoil and cultural frustrations that turned us all against each other, and how we broke down those walls of division to come together again. This is our country's coming of age story. How good.
It's been a tough few years.
We've had three prime ministers in four years, a scandalous ball-tampering scandal, our own #Metoo moments (Defamation laws apply*), the Murray-Darling fish kills and, worst of all, the cancellation of both the NRL and AFL footy shows.
In this penetrating and incisive book, The Betoota Advocate's editors Clancy Overell and Errol Parker take us on the nation's journey through chaos and confusion, to the start of a new era.
Finally, we as a nation have been gifted the rare opportunity to choose who leads our country for an entire federal term. Our cricketers now use talent and skill to win matches. The culture wars are over, and common sense prevails.
With a sensible Liberal government, a charismatic PM and a united, strong and experienced cabinet of some of our nation's greatest minds 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.
About the Author
The Betoota Advocate is a small and independent regional newspaper from far west Queensland. We pride ourselves on reporting fair and just news with an authenticity that rivals only the salt on the sunburnt earth that surrounds us here in the Queensland Channel Country. Established in the mid-1800s, we are arguably Australia's oldest newspaper and have always taken pride in our ability to report both regional and metropolitan news. Recently, our popularity has grown immensely as a result of a bold online revival.
