It was the census failure that left thousands of Australians bashing their keyboards in frustration, embarrassed the government and cost $30 million. Join us for the blame game.
The accusations are flying - again - about the Coalition's political discipline and the Senate will decide the fate of the plebiscite.
The same-sex marriage legislation is being debated and Labor is putting maximum pressure on the government. The Singaporean PM is also in town.
And so it begins. As Parliament prepares to debate the same-sex marriage plebiscite a government MP is throwing caution to the wind.
Parliament is entering the final few weeks of the year. The plebiscite looks all but dead in the water and there are some interesting reactions to Donald Trump's latest remarks.
The Prime Minister is trying to broker a deal - with his own MPs mind you - on superannuation.
Politics live as Malcolm Turnbull marks his first anniversary by introducing same-sex plebiscite legislation
It's a birthday - of sorts - for the Prime Minister who is celebrating not with a cake but legislation to bring about the plebiscite on same-sex marriage.
The terms of the same-sex marriage plebiscite will be revealed today. They are sure to further fan the flames of what is already a difficult issue for the Coalition.
Welcome to another week in Parliament which brings us first speeches from, among others, Pauline Hanson and Derryn Hinch, myriad machinations on same-sex marriage and the first anniversary of Malcolm Turnbull's prime ministership.
Legislation, maiden speeches and political battle: MPs are back in Parliament for the final sitting day of the week.
Yesterday was all about the pomp and ceremony but today things get real.
Welcome to the first day of the new Parliament. It's nearly 17 weeks since Parliament sat. So much has changed.

The first face to face encounter of the campaign between Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Labor leader Bill Shorten.
Hello and welcome to day 1 proper of the campaign or day -54 if that makes you feel better.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is about to make his pitch to voters to re elect his government ahead of the July 2 election.
Only 74 days to go people. We are in the warm up campaign following the Senate's rejection of the government's building watchdog legislation which handed Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull a trigger for a double dissolution election.
Australia faces a double dissolution election on July 2 after the Senate rejected Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull's building industry watchdog legislation.
The pre election campaign has begun. Regardless of the Senate's actions both leaders have hit the airwaves to sell their message. And what does former prime minister Tony Abbott think?
It's the last day of the sitting week although the Senate is expected to sit late into the night to pass the government's upper house voting changes. And lower house MPs will have to stick around to approve the changes. So it's not quite the last day. Between now then things could get a bit testy.
Hello and welcome to the day in politics. As well as more talk about the budget - what's in, what's out, when it will be - the report into the Safe Schools is the topic of conversation. It's basically a stick of dynamite that will get thrown onto an already fiery week.
Hello and welcome to the start of another sitting week. Will it be the last week before the government goes all crazy na na and decides to have an early double dissolution election? Will the budget be moved? Will we even find out the answers to these questions?
The Prime Minister calls in the police to investigate a leak that may or may not have something to do with his predecessor - it's just like old times. Suspicion and tax are the themes of the day.
Tax, tax, tax, that's all anyone wants to talk about. Is Labor trying to destroy the housing market or is the Coalition merely governing for the rich? Let's see who is winning the war of hyperbole.
Tax, election, tax, election - a familiar refrain greets us as we begin the day in politics.
Never miss a meal is the advice from one of the most successful prime ministers. Words for Malcolm Turnbull as he heads into another sitting week.
Hello and welcome to the final day of the week. The debate about tax reform - or the lack thereof - continues and the government will release its defence white paper later this morning.
Hello and welcome to Wednesday - hump day - and the government and opposition are locked in a battle over house prices and whether making housing more affordable is a good or a bad thing.
Hello and welcome to another day in federal politics where the talk is all about whether or not Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull will pull the trigger on an early double dissolution election. And a bit of tax.
