Protest Politics on the Rise in Australia

Posted on: Wed 14 Mar 2018

New research from the Grattan Institute has found that protest politics is on the rise in Australia.

Program Director of Budget Policy and Institutions at the Grattan Institute, Danielle Wood, says, ‘The predominant thing is the falling of trust in the government. People are abandoning the major parties because they no longer trust them and they are voting for a minor party in the hope of getting a different result’.

Danielle Wood joins Breakfast’s Tom and Casey to discuss the findings.
