For over 20 years, Katharine Murphy, now Guardian Australia’s political editor, has captured our politicians during some of Australia’s most significant hours. 2020 is no exception. It has been a year that started with one of the most devastating bushfire seasons on record and was dominated by a pandemic that changed daily life for every Australian.
