CANBERRA OBSERVED High Court high handed to 'foreigners' in Parliament
For Malcolm Turnbull, the most prominent Republican in Federal Parliament, the High Court’s recent decision on citizenship has become an albatross around his neck.

MANUFACTURING Auto industry loss result of government policy failure
The closure of Holden’s Elizabeth plant on October 20, 2017, ended automotive mass production in Australia for the foreseeable future. This date marks one of the blackest days in the nation’s industrial history and the flow-on effects of this closure will entail the loss of up to 50,000 jobs and the businesses that provided them.

FOREIGN AFFAIRS Behind the indictments of ex-Trump campaigners
U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller has laid a series of charges against a former aide to Donald Trump, Paul Manafort, and his long-time business partner Rick Gates, alleging conspiracy to launder money, making false statements and other charges in connection with their work for a Russia-aligned political party, the Party of Regions in Ukraine, and the former government of Ukraine, between 2006 and 2016.

AUSTRALIAN HISTORY Beersheba charge enabled a pivotal victory
The key to Jersulemn was Gaza, where the Turks had twice halted the British advance in early 1917. Under new leadership, the British formulated a daring and audacious plan to attack the Gaza-Beersheba defence line from the Beersheba flank. While two British divisions assaulted the outer defence line to divert Turkish attention, the Australian and Anzac Mounted Divisions under cover of darkness would ride into position. The risk was that if Beersheba was not captured in time, their horses could die of thirst.

U.S. HISTORY Why Americans stick to their guns
The first 10 amendments to the Consti­tution of the United States of America are known as the Bill of Rights. The Second Amendment, often quoted as guaranteeing the right of Americans to own guns, states: “A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.”

MUSIC New styles: Dipping into the melting pot
The contemporary musician is exposed to a dizzying array of musical styles. Students of music can learn all forms of jazz or blues, and anything in classical music from Palestrina’s harmonically simple plain song through to Bach’s endlessly variable counterpoint, to Schoenberg’s atonalism, Messiaen’s imitation of birdsong or Bartok’s tone clusters.

CINEMA Loving Vincent: A mystery in oils
At turns noirish and lyrical, Loving Vincent, is a truly extraordinary picture. It is a hand-painted-in-oils detective story that examines the turbulent life and mysterious death of Vincent van Gogh from within the vista of his own work. The viewer is immersed in an experience that is perhaps akin to that of the great artist himself.

BOOK REVIEW Just what is the conservative idea?
In this short book, Freeman considers the nature of the conservative tradition in Australia, focusing on that tradition as it has been lived out in the Liberal Party of Australia from Menzies to Abbott. The book also includes a short essay in response written by Mr Abbott.

LETTERS
Whatever one may think of Donald Trump’s abilities as a statesman, it must be handed to him that he was the first to recognise publicly that free trade cannot work between countries at very different stages of development, where wage rates in one are protected at much higher levels than in the other. A country with minimum pay rates of $20 an hour, no matter how efficient its workforce, simply cannot produce goods as cheaply as one that pays $2 an hour.
