Jamie Briggs saga defines current Australian politics

Mr Briggs resigned as cities minister after acting inappropriately towards a young woman while drinking in a Hong Kong bar during a ministerial visit in late November. Since then, Peter Dutton sent an insulting and misogynistic text, about a journalist who published details of the event, not to his college Jamie Briggs, but to the journalist herself. I spoke to Melbourne University’s Dr Lauren Rosewarne about this event, and what it demonstrates about Australian politics.

The Refugee Action Collective is protesting outside Immigration Minister Peter Dutton’s electoral office from 7am tomorrow, Wednesday 9th, to bring attention to the current refugee crisis. I spoke to Collective spokesperson Mark Gillespie, about what the protest is for, as well as the current refugee situation both in Australia and overseas.
