The shadow housing minister said on Monday it was a “good point” that the original proposal for a single person to withdraw $50,000 was conceived before the 2022 election when prices were lower and may need to be revised – although the “broad strokes” would remain the same.

Although the opposition leader, Peter Dutton, insisted on Monday that he intends to win back outer and inner metro seats, there are differences emerging particularly on nuclear energy, with the former MP Jason Falinski claiming the party is “not necessarily” advocating it as the preferred option.

A Liberal, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said the party must avoid “low-rent culture war issues” and that they did not think the Sussan Ley tweet referring to “foreign criminals” ahead of the Dunkley byelection had “helped”.

  • Summary

Consulting firm Synergy 360 says it needs to be vindicated with significant damages over four news reports claiming secret advice from then-federal Liberal MP Stuart Robert benefited its clients.

After a parliamentary inquiry, Robert was referred to the National Anti-Corruption Commission(Nacc) in September over claims Synergy channelled money to a company linked to the former frontbencher to win lucrative government work.

The alleged defamation from the most recent article included reports that Synergy and Milo benefited from a contract with Services Australia worth over $100,000 simply because of their corrupt relationship with a senior federal official.

  • Summary

The opposition leader, Peter Dutton, reportedly flew to Perth for just an hour to attend the 70th birthday party of the mining billionaire Gina Rinehart, flying an overnight round-trip cross-country before returning to Melbourne to campaign on cost-of-living issues ahead of the Dunkley byelection.

Dutton’s latest trip west to pay homage to the Hancock Prospecting billionaire has raised questions among Labor MPs and usual media supporters of the Liberal leader, with the 2GB host Ben Fordham asking why he had not chosen to instead spend more time campaigning in Dunkley.

The Perth lord mayor, Basil Zempilas, told 6PR radio he attended the event, calling the horseback show “an incredible sight”, and saying the pop star Guy Sebastian had sung the national anthem.

  • Summary

Shane Drumgold, the former ACT director of public prosecutions, is “looking forward to moving on with his life” after a supreme court ruled Walter Sofronoff’s extensive communications with a columnist at The Australian newspaper gave rise to an impression of bias against him during an inquiry into the Bruce Lehrmann trial.

Justice Stephen Kaye handed down his judgment in Drumgold’s case against Sofronoff and the ACT government on Monday afternoon, finding the inquiry head’s 273 interactions with the columnist, Janet Albrechtsen, gave the impression he “might have been influenced by the views held and publicly expressed” by her.

Dan O’Gorman, Drumgold’s lawyer, argued in February’s hearings that Albrechtsen was an “advocate” for Lehrmann who may have “infected” Sofronoff with bias against his client, leading the inquiry head to “deal with matters other than on their legal and factual merits”.

But Adaminaby’s Big Trout is causing controversy in the 301-person town, north-west of Cooma in southern New South Wales, due to its “hideous, theme park” colouring.

The Snowy Monaro council mayor, Chris Hanna, recognised the Big Trout’s significance to Adaminaby and the wider community, and its place as an important regional symbol.

The idea of a Big Trout was first dreamed up by Adaminaby Lions Club member Leigh Stewart, who envisioned the sculpture as the centrepiece of a picnic park.

Kennedy, a consultant and the former candidate for Bennelong, won preselection in the first round on Monday night with 158 out of 296 votes, beating the mayor of Sutherland shire, Carmelo Pesce, and war widow and veteran family advocate commissioner, Gwen Cherne.

Kennedy will be prohibitive favourite in the poll, given Morrison’s 12.5% margin, the inclination within Labor not to field a candidate, and the lack of a strong independent challenge.

Simon Holmes à Court, the founder of the Climate 200 fundraising body for independent candidates, has been spruiking for months for a local campaign group to approach seeking support in Cook.

Middle East crisis live: 16-year-old boy reportedly killed during Israeli raid near Ramallah

Summary

Haaretz is reporting that a planned meeting to discuss Israeli “security preparations for Ramadan” scheduled for today has been cancelled, due to the personal health of Benjamin Netanyahu.

The senior US official said that Israel appeared to be willing to strike a deal if Hamas would agree to the “default defined category of vulnerable hostages” of the sick and wounded, elderly people, and women.

A Hamas delegation was in Cairo on Sunday for talks on efforts to broker a ceasefire in the war in Gaza after indications that Israel had provisionally accepted a six-week phased hostage and truce deal before the beginning of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

Summary

Photograph: Tobias Schwarz/AFP/Getty ImagesRussia’s foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, said the leaked discussions showed that the appetite for war in Europe “still remains very very high”, and the aim was to ensure “Russia’s strategic defeat on the battlefield”.

Russian media on Friday published a 38-minute recording of a call in which German officers were heard discussing weapons for Ukraine and a potential strike by Kyiv on a bridge in Crimea, prompting officials in Moscow to demand an explanation.
