A week later, the 2022 election has been predictably rudimentary and embarrassing. Two games without a very inspiring vision arguing about personal attacks, “who made the biggest mistake” contests and overheated scare campaigns.

In the run-up to tonight’s first leaders debate between Prime Minister Scott Morrison and his Labor opponent Anthony Albanese, such scare campaigns have dominated coverage.

The scheme, which forces welfare recipients into a card that prevents them from withdrawing cash or accessing alcohol or gambling services, is being tested in some areas.
