My Imagining Australia coauthor David Madden, along with the ever-energetic Jeremy Heimans, have started GetUp!, a lobbying organisation aimed at keeping the Coalition accountable after they win control of the Senate. Their board includes Evan Thornley and John Hewson (I’m guessing it was the author of Fightback! who persuaded them to add the exclamation mark to the name). They have a spunky new ad (coming this week to a TV near you), and have garnered some media publicity today in The Age (including photo) and SMH.
Update: Over at Catallaxy, Andrew Norton has a more cynical take on Get Up!
