On this episode, we discuss the resignation of Daniel Andrews and boundaries for bureaucrats.

How did former Victorian leader Daniel Andrews gain a national profile like few premiers before him?

Where should the line be between bureaucrats and politics? And can the Yes campaign turn public opinion around before referendum day?

On this episode of Democracy Sausage, Dr Marija Taflaga and Professor Mark Kenny discuss Daniel Andrews’ political legacy, the inquiry into senior public servant Michael Pezzullo and the state of the Voice campaign.

Marija Taflaga is the Director of the ANU Centre for the Study of Australian Politics and a Lecturer at the ANU School of Politics and International Relations.

Mark Kenny is a Professor at the ANU Australian Studies Institute. He came to the University after a high-profile journalistic career including six years as chief political correspondent and national affairs editor for The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age and The Canberra Times.
