"It's delusional. You have to punch them. Yeah, maybe that's so anyway, my point is I don't see I don't see that is super woke but a simple call like that but I agree with you there have been instances where ordinary events have been beaten up into Iraq crisis events, but I want you to shine me with a live of parties involved in that super work notice. So they said what is Morrison done? He has a terrible record on racism. How do you measure that? Ye how do they measure what Morrison has or hasn't done on racism. Did they say the Abbott government. The coalition's record on Race racism has been shocking wow dead. But by allowing greater interpretation of free speech so refusing to ban hate speech I think is their their argument. Well, that's a pretty wage argument if that is the argument. Anyway, there's nothing specific enough in that for us to get our teeth into I know can I just say about George Brandis? He said everyone has a right to be a bigot. He didn't say everybody should be a bigot or being a bigot is good. He said this is a liberal democracy. It's a pluralist society people are entitled to have their own point of view. Yeah, and she was absolutely right and so people to pile on him for that. I thought was just ridiculous. Yeah a bigot a person who is obstinately and or unreasonably attached to a belief opinion or faction, especially one who is prejudiced against or antagonistic towards a person or people on the basis of their membership of a particular group. Yeah. Depends on your hard or soft reading of that. I guess what look that will be bigger than your Society. Hey, but, you know prejudiced against people on the basis of their membership of a particular group one really big it is a racist. Well in many times and bigotry I know yeah, but Brandis was correct. He was just saying this is a pluralist society people are entitled to have a point of view of their own regardless of whether you like it or don't like it..

"Meanwhile, the Morrison government has been missing in action the club Record on racism has been shocking the Abbott government proposed changes to race Discrimination Act to weaken protections against hate speech and then Senator George Brandis said everyone has a right to be a bigot off racism takes a real and Lasting tone individual lives and communities. So what can we do together? We can take a stand Against Racism. That's why labor is calling for a new national anti-racism campaign promoting a zero-tolerance approach to racism. Will you stand with labor Against Racism by signing our petition and 3345 people signed the petition and that's the whole part. You know, we don't need a campaign Against Racism, right virtually, you know, the vast majority of the population were already Against Racism I'm fine. How many racists do you know? I don't know any that I know of cuz nobody openly is racist in my exactly and so it is socially and that's not pretend to know everybody just dropped but I think that's a pretty awful. Okay, do you think can you take that back? Yeah. Sorry. What's that back up? Yep. Okay, these these figures about a tax on people of Asian appearance. You might may or may not have noticed the ABC they really play up to this, you know, and to to sort of back their claims that off all these Asians in Australia or people of Asian appearance of being attacked. If you read some of the anecdotes, you know, the people they interview it was like well, I was standing at the bus stop and I heard someone say covid-19. You know things like that people just sort of quite sort of an aggressive. Anecdotal comments like that, you know this there's no sort of you know Massacre of Muslims in a mosque in Australia. It's nothing like that. It's just a sort of casual observed perceived racism and and my feeling is that the ABC and SBS and and and the greens and you know, the people who are into this sort of thing off ripping it up by making people of Asian appearance or Muslims or whatever feel that they have to be on guard all the time. And so, you know, if you're looking for racism, you'll find racism. You know what I'm saying? Don't you they're being they're being keyed up to find racism everywhere. And so they will find it you found standing at the bus stop and I heard this guy say something about covid-19. I I knew he was talking about me because I looked like an Asian, you know sort of thing and you know, this this is what it is it. Four races, you wouldn't suggest there's no racism in Australia, of course not okay since racism everywhere, of course, so given that there's bound to be some racism. Yeah, we don't like racism..

"Find your favorite podcasts and for all the draft content you need Nick costos say that how you do it what's going on with Maggie are great to talk to you guys hope you and your family to stay in shape and of course the great people of New York City my hometown as well of course yeah Nick we are glad to have you on today and and of course and it comes out that US Caesar's puts out the the the way the the weight over unders for NFL teams you saw six and a half for the jets and you thought what am I I think it's actually probably a little short depending on what the jets could you up you're coming up in the NFL draft I think that yes you definitely would like seven or eight games next year but you got to get a weapon for Sam Darnold and it kind of went into what we think that you have to do with the eleventh overall pick in we had Evan Roberts on the shore earlier this week obviously a host on the fan on you better get that count down to the NFL draft he said he thinks the judge take a wide receiver and I could not agree more like I know you got to get get the projection for Sam Darnold and some people think you know maybe the jets should take maybe like the fourth of those four top tackles but there's a chance that all four of them are all bored even if one of them is on the board would you rather take the fourth tackle or the number one wide receiver on the board because I really think eleven is where the the run on these the process start and I just think you gotta get them help us empower Robby Anderson is that when Caroline obviously incredible slot option and he's fine but he's solid but unspectacular per job been a roll of the dice you like what you did last year down the stretch Tampa Bay but again a roll of the dice and you gotta get that speed element so I really think this is gonna be wide receiver for Sam Darnold and if that's the case you know you like the way Greg Williams defense plays down the stretch last year if this office to get cook a little bit of Sam Darnold can stay healthy I don't think there's any reason why the jacket was seven or eight games next year maybe more maybe less depending on how this goes but I think it has to be a wide receiver now they Q. here's the issue I have with you and have an a and say go wide receiver with the eleventh overall pick is this the offense of line you need a solution after left tackle spot you've got to protect Donald you saw him at USC lose a little bit more mistake prone what he did have the protection up front you saw that last year with the jets as well why would you go wide receiver eleventh overall when everybody saying you can get playmakers at wide receiver second third and fourth round yeah you may be able to do that look like Eric the cop of the respected general manager of Baltimore Ravens at that though you may be able to get a starting caliber wide receiver like the fourth or fifth round of distress but I really think based on what we that'll be three wide receivers in this draft and there are good ones either we're going to be drafted in the first round as well but it's G. D. land from Oklahoma and the two Alabama kids Henry Ruggs and Jerry Judy at those three guys were all lined and then we get to everybody else and I understand the point about getting left back over Sam Darnold but here's the thing about like the turnovers and what happened did you estate this is why you hired Adam gates but to make sure the Campbell can play well to limit the turnovers right so I mean I don't want to hear that if I call because you will be six to make sure things are right for Sam Darnold like your normal with the third overall pick in the draft like this is your career for Sam Darnold yeah I heard a quote unquote quarterback Whisperer Adam gase to make sure Sam Darnold to kick it up to another year like no more excuses for this guy like I I'm not the George Brandis Orlando pace but I mean they have made some additions on the offensive line they could do that again as they move on in the draft here if you have the opportunity to get one of these elite wide receivers lamb rugs or Judy I think you gotta do it otherwise like right you can protect Sam Darnold would be throwing the ball to let the courts the points you don't walk like like what what what what what what I don't think I have to be back going to come out of retirement either the second or third round you know you're good but I mean is it going to be the caliber you guys were talking about like it's time for the check to actually like they gotta protect their investment you gotta protect Sam Darnold at some point and I don't mean in terms of pass protection right keeping them up right like you got to give him a weapon because it came up big time weapons that he can help the curricula the ball down the field all the football through your date got nothing right now you gotta get a wide receiver for the study you've got to give them a chance here what's wrong with that Barty Ostrem right it was hair strands straight meticulously apart to be your site is not Orlando pace George fit might not even be Oliver Miller that's a basketball player it was that was like a a swing tackle I don't know you but a better hopes we're gonna find out but you're you're great and I actually agree with you I think that the jets are going to win it I think beat that said a little bit low for them also I think that they're going to definitely would more than I think they're gonna win seven games at easy I think they're actually going to be eight eight would be the floor that would put for the jets next year but I actually I I I I I value them maybe a little higher than others I think what about that the giants with five and a half that one may be a little trickier all I could do the giants are gonna go over that win total and and look I am a giant fan like like one giant fan a bit of a Homer but I mean I criticized the organization probably more than most giants fans what I'm I could be talking a little bit on offense this year I really like angle don't you like what he showed in your number one would like some of the pieces on the top and here I think the topic is actually going to be really good my question is if the defense because the defense has absolutely no all right so so that's my concern with the science and obviously like even if the giants in the Redskins even improve this year this is a two team race in the NFC east perfect outweighs and you go head and shoulders above what the giants at Redskins so I look at the giant but I look at this is a team that could compete maybe for like a division title in twenty twenty one probably not in twenty twenty but I think it's a gentleman to nail this draft and maybe he could turn his computer on it make sure you get all the pics that outside coming next Thursday night I see no reason why the giants can't win six seven maybe even eight games next year but they gotta fix this defense I look at that it's like the big problem area here and I know what for overall like opposite Jack was like the sexy pick for them right now we'll also talk about like Yandle Jeremiah of the NFL network on a conference call yesterday will that Alabama the track was now that the betting favorite to be the giants ticket number four I would take I think assessment the linebacker safety hybrid at a glance and I just think that you're the giants have got to get back the defense here your date on offense with two early picks the last couple years would say kwon Barkley obviously and Daniel Jones it's time to spend some draft capital on this whole Brenda's defect that can't you anything and can't get off the field so I think it's them and here's why I like him for Joe judge you know what we're hearing now from Joe judge and all these conference call that he's doing here is the values position let players drafting guys based on what you can do with them not what they've done in the past it seems to me like judge would be a big fan of Isaiah Simmons and I think we'll find out kind of what the giants you know how the power hierarchies breaking down here between cattlemen and judge based on what we see happen with the fourth overall pick yeah listen I don't agree with you about the jets eleven but I do agree about the giants with Simmons with that with that fourth overall picnic and and we'll see exactly what they do if they address the offense of line or if they go with the talented linebacker coming out of Clemson because he's that good of a play maker you know and if you're looking for if you're looking for a defense to take a step forward and you believe Simmons can change what you do defensively and give me a big chip as the cliche goes in the old game I think that is the argument will find that guy in the second third or fourth round he's a special talent okay acts then all giants fans let's make a pact if they decide to take Isaiah Simmons at four you can not complain about Daniel Jones not having enough time I think Walmart would not be able to get thirty yards I you can't you won't be able to complain because you're sitting right here with an opportunity to have your pick of the best offense of tackles that can pair with Daniel Jones for the rest of his career in theory you would have passed on it so we have to make this pack world a pinky swear you can't complain about the giants offense of wide if you want them to go I say isn't yeah I love it I'm not gonna I'm not that I'm not making that like you said that I bet you look New York sports fans if there's one thing we love more than our teams winning it's plain when our teams are doing poorly thought there's no way I'm making that thank you for getting when you when you look at these lines coming out though you feel comfortable you know the E. you mention value where do you look at the value to before here the draft takes place next Thursday night it's really hard right especially when you get multiple quotes from a lot of these insiders yesterday like Ian Rapoport of NFL network at this morning Jeremiah said yesterday on the conference call that like from digits that they're getting it that mock drafts and look like I think like what constitutes like a really accurate successful mock draft if you got like twelve X. correctly out of the thirty two like it's very hard and what everyone's saying that like the people in quote unquote the no is that motorists are going to be more incorrect this year than ever and I think it makes a lot of sense right when you consider the lack of quality information like great we had a combine but there haven't been any pro days out or talking to other scouts scouts are talking to the media so there's less information out there now than we've ever seen before like that I think there were guys that are like being bandied about of like second round picks but we're definitely going to go in the first round here so I think this is going to be the most unpredictable NFL draft for obvious reasons that we've ever seen I think that if you are looking to bet on the draft I think that you got to go with guys that you can trust the writers that you can trust like really respected members of the media covered the draft general Jeremiah I keep referencing him but he's great would be chief among them Bob for information sources like that's why I figured her wealthy clients beat writer start happened yesterday Jeremiah mentions that yesterday so you're probably you know fire where there's smoke is a concern that but what I'm gonna be honest with you guys like it either educated guesses this year like last year I thought there were some really strong but to make the case that you have over seventeen and a half with the best friend of the year twenty nineteen for me I just don't think that we have that this year which distracted more educated guesses are supposed to be like yeah I'm pretty sure that this is going to be right so you know I I think in terms of win totals though you got the patriots at eight I have read all you got the Tampa Bay bucs said it not right now all of which is kind of interesting as we're going to be paying attention to how Brady and Belichick's careers now are going to be tough daily sort of away from each other but exchange trade trade away from each other I thought eight and a half I I don't know Nick I still have a lot of faith in bill Belichick that I don't know who they're going to be drafting any saw Ian Rapoport yesterday said that he believes that the patriots are going to take a quarterback with a premium pick I just don't see Bella check turning in you know a a clunker of a season and for them anything under eight to have which is going to be a clunker Barton yeah I think I'm kind of a B. opinion right now it's wild right there are a lot of people I respect out there on the football media community and it seems like people have really different takes on the patriots and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers what else are we camp and quickly on them that win total nine the Buccaneers are winning double digit gains this year with Tom Brady like James wants to turn the ball over thirty plus times last year and the books were still in most of these games are like you you.

"This is an ABC podcast when journalists. Tony Giants I came on this program in two thousand and eight. He was the host of ABC. TV's Notley current affairs show lateline and he was also just days away from the debut of brand new TV show and the idea for that program was something like this. You get a studio audience of everyday people putting questions to a panel of five public figures panelists come from all sides of politics and public life. The panel changes each week. But the constant is Tony there in the middle keeping things civil level and on track taking that question as a comment. This was all going to happen. Live to wear and it was to be called simply Q.. Nine eleven years lighter. The show was a Monday night fixture on the ABC and when it works it's something of a national townhall meeting but now Tony John's poised to leave his post at the desk where he's been living all this time for a whole new life getting up at mid-day Faiyum Char in Beijing another thing that's changed is tiny joneses written two novels thrillers. Draw on his work as a journalist and the most recent one is called in darkness visible. Welcome back tiny. Thanks for having me Richard. When that camelot went on on the fish show way back? When was there a bit of a surge de live? TV and you dump them TV online but it pretty much. You're in a human zoo of public opinion when you went loft where for that. Did you feel a bit of a practice. Run beforehand and That went out on the Internet and that was pretty wild because we had no chance that Just surprised surprised us with how intelligent they questions were. And we had tiny Abbott among others. I think tenure plebiscite was on that original panel. This is before we're even broadcasts. We did put it out on a kind of internet foam and it's still available to have a look at it was a moment that suggested This is really going to work so I feel quite comfortable. We did have very I. This live show. It was with Kevin Rudd. It was his This year is prime minister. Having just won the election light the previous year. And this was one of these big Outings and he said what looked like a cocktail stool in front of a live audience and I stood in a weird looking podium. That looked like it was like a captain of a small. It was it was kind of crazy but it's sort of would having the twitter feed their early on. I don't remember if that was there from the first from the talk about a year later I think controversial having the twitter feed streaming at the bottom. It certainly has been controversial over times over time that look at gave people away food beyond the studio audience to directly engage. What's being said on the panel and look in the end? It became a of people to prove how clever they were as twitter often demonstrates the the smartest wittiest comment is the one that will sort of get people's attention of course. That's what happened a lot of smart witty. You people started commenting on what people are saying on the programs that gave it an extra dimension immediately but I have to say is the host. I never saw it while I was live. It's the audience out out there that are watching the twitter feed and guys up in the control room that a monitoring it a suppose that yes that's right and someone having to be the editor of that twitter fade as it goes at. That's going to be one one of the most hair raising jobs. You don't really know sometimes all the coded messages the might be sitting insys. We'd been caught out a few times with candidate messages you as recorded list S. Sometimes we put things to that a little too risque for the general audience or offended people on the panel and that was a big mistake. And I think I have a time the guys who Moderating the twitter feed who under tremendous pressure because they're huge number of tweets thirty five forty thousand. Come through in the course of the now around you have to have a little sort of bucket. The dips into that feed and throws a number of them in front of you and all of those very quickly have to choose the pithiest ones. Gennifer me the moment I think when I saw aw the real power of that program was when George Brandis was on a guest early on and he was asked a question from a guy sitting right at the back of the room right at the back. The Room and George Brand was attorney general. I know you would have been opposition. frontbencher Tom read off his talking points. And it was one of those kind of sterile exchanges. And then you threw it back to the question and you said You satisfied with that answer and the guy so much rubbish normal life and Brandis win look and then gave him a much better answer and to me. That was like watching. A politician go from being like the usual talking points sterile interview to being intellectual meeting the the white politicians talk. They took so differently when they're actually in amongst the people who were in the electorates icing voters directly. They're forced to give more honest and more real advances ince's even if the answers are ideological even people accept that because they know the ideology of different politicians Maine's sometimes they're going to say things I don't agree with but if they're honest honest about it if they're genuine in their responses if they look like they're reeling of talking points they do very well but the best moments in the program always come I. I believe from the audience in the audience member that that won't let the bone go and we always say actually it's this is not like question time in house of Reps. We get one question to sit down. It's more like the Senate where if you want to. You can have a follow up question and maybe more than one. Is this something broken about journalism that you kind of need to. Who outsource those kinds of questions to members of the general public? Horwath cumin. I I think it's just an opportunity. That's not available. Virtually anywhere else in the world. I mean yes they. They have a similar program in Britain Question Time. But it's not live actually so this is alive moment on television sometimes. It's reported the next day like a sporting voting contest. You know how it goes is like You know you get your analysts. This person did well on this. I didn't do well but always you get this water cooler conversation about the nature. Sure the program and and often focuses on the individual in the audience WHO's put the politician on the spot? I Bet that entirely answers your question except to say that now it does at all. I want to redirect you to the question about the broken. This of journalists more can't ask direct questions in that way is this something always in the TV journalists. That's thinking of how this is looking in the sweets. Yes too much of the theater critic to be able to just simply ask a direct and punchy question I think people do ask direct and punchy questions Russians but politicians have now learnt trained largely treacherous people who go from journalism to work alongside them teaching him how not to answer questions question how to avoid the direct dancer that might get them into some sort of political strife. Because it'd been to frank those moments don't wash on Q.. And A. Because it's not you you professional journalists asking the question. It's voter so I do think there is a problem with Interviewing politicians these days. Because they've become too slick lick. They've worked out even under tough questioning. They know they look at the time behind their behind. The percentage shoulder and they realize only going to get through Oughta know five maybe seven seven minutes. I can do that and it's quite easy to get away with not really answering questions directly. Under those circumstances I feel because I was A and you're on light line. We had long interviews largely but I I now. I don't think that works so well now with professional politicians of this day and age. Maybe you get better answers from the members of the general public. Because they're not looking to ask Gotcha question. How many times have you heard a journalist? Get an interesting comment out of a politician ago. you you say that. But you'll lead us this. I'm guilty of this year so I'm not going to get on my high horse and suggested other journals doing odd the things. I've I'm sure I've done that myself. And of course you looking. For inconsistencies. In answers from politicians they're inconsistent with the party positional. What the Prime Minister to set the previous day immediately? You know you're onto something because maybe there's dissension around this issue of policy. Or what did they say. Consistency being the HOB Goblin of small minds isn't it better. Did to get revelation or truthfulness. saw those those kinds of things from that's why we ended Q.. And indeed you did people do seem to like it though occasionally when you you have a politician free show on q and All they do genuinely or is it. Just people being audited sanctimony so refreshing not to have there is a certain amount of sanctimony Kamini That goes with that comment and often. It's a kind of twitter driven. Sort of commentary which doesn't necessarily reflect the holiday because I'll tell you what happens when when we get senior politicians on the program we have a bigger audience? It's as simple as that. I don't think that's changed over time In spite of what people think about hiding seeing politicians on on the program they still do want a venue where politicians fate a hill to the fire not necessarily by journalists maybe from other panel members Biz but but particularly from voters. Do you think just switching the focus that the success of QNA doesn't just reveal something about the state of journalism but also about the state of question time in in parliament's I mean I've tireless off which question time and acid ribs and it's it's just terrible comparing to the question time in the UK parliament with his genuine annual debates And guys running around. The House is just this dull regimented series of Dorothy dixies. or or you know or Gotcha. Who has there's more questions in parliament than your average political interviewer will come up with? Because that's what it's designed for. They'll sit there and their tactics meetings and I work at. What is the Gotcha question into the day? Where are we going to pin? Pin The government down. So they're going to be embarrassed on this particular day said the not a lot of discussion about serious policy and that's one of the things that annoys is the hell out of voters and politicians to seems like they're trapped in a system that I did. I really enjoy that city in the house. Asking Dorothy Dickson going back led to a year after year after year. I don't think they do enjoy it. No that how you would revolutionize that process is an open question. You'd have to get rid of tactics committees these. You'd have to allow free questioning in the same way they do in the the the British government is separate to the Party and the general. So it's it's it's it's quite common that you'll have someone who's not in government that is say a backbencher ask tough questions of their own prime minister in Britain. That doesn't happen here. It never will I. I suspect that rates and politicians by probably enjoy coming on Q.. And I because I do. I mean one of the reasons. If you've got any interesting sometimes it depends. What kind of a time they have us? I suppose we haven't got Scott Morrison to come on in many many many years and Look I understand to some degree. He's running a new government..

I mean there's such believe on this tiny poverty stricken country that is just wrenched itself out of the grip of you know some janis empire and here we supposedly they friends who helped him get free of that predicament spying on them just to to steal better deal on oil sipc deprive them of whatever wealth they might be able to ring and out of that natural resource when they desperately need i mean it is well somebody working in that area found out about it and lake did <hes> and well done to that and of course there's a prosecution happening in relation to that and also a prosecution of his lawyer <music> who was a former i._c._t. Attorney general really respected man. Who's who's eilly crime. It seems as being to refer the matter to the international court like the public knowledge what we did. How can you say that he's done anything. That's dying. During endangering australia's national interest it's despicable for district intimidation to be suing to taking this lawyer to court as well. What what what are they taking the lawyer to court two four pretense. Let's see accused of disclosing secret information by for them including leading the lawyer. The lawyer was simply making a complaint to an international about what what had been done it smacks of the sort of tactics that you expect expect from a an authoritarian state. You know exactly prosecute the person that you don't like but but you believe everybody everybody in scare. Everybody scare everybody away from trying to defend them or help this so describe george brandis was given the opportunity to commence this and sat on it for over two years. He's which meant. He didn't feel comfortable doing it. <hes> christian portas come in and within six months it go ahead so you know you you said it smacks of authoritarianism a with fascism about this with authority baring ism of crashing dissenter. We still have a fair way into sending a signal to people. Don't put your head above the parapet because you will be persecuted like it's a really nasty diners thing so the question is and obviously in both cases state secrets were breached but we have to have a law that says if it's genuinely in the public interest the team will list one is say straightforward. Australians need not executive is engaging in the various or unethical activities. Surely the public has a right to know say clearly we need that defense and we need whistle whistle blowers to be able to call when air special forces or allow spooks commit illegal acts and and the fact that my strands couldn't give two hoots in at some stage we'll turn around and gang g. You know what's the fascism barron era nobody well. It started around that now so you went complaining so you should like. It's some people are concerned but just not enough off not enough so anyway. That was a really compelling four corners episode. What's so let me see allison says that that three hundred page was just the judgment of the court of appeal say we go so the actual trial <hes> probably a thousand a transcript would be well the win for weeks. It would just be down. The three hundred pipes joins long service. Leave is still a few years of caitlyn's back on one eight. Also a collie from ours could only collie right also just whips fascism in america <hes> trump telling american companies not to deal with china and using his presidential powers that was to impose tap some chinese goods but basically telling american companies stopped dealing with china and you can't really force them he you can't unless he agency that he has so yeah so president has got some pretty strong pales talking..

Explainer 163: What is the One Nation party, and why wont it go away?

"However, far from a stray Lear, you may be and however little attention. You are paying to the federal election campaign through which the country is putting itself it is nicer than that sometime before polls open on me. Eighteenth your consciousness will be clouded by the name of the one nation party. And if I've been invited to I want into my home, then I should have the right to have say in my country. This may indeed already have happened the characteristically ridiculous interview given this week to a stray in television by one nations, founder and leader Senator Pauline Hanson possessed much of the stuff of which global viral sensations are made scandal fast tears, and the always happening spectacle of those who make their living trading in sanctimonious rage getting their own tone in the pillory. Keep going up. No have no. Until two people. Don't. The central issue of this particular brouhaha was the release of footage, which showed a one nation. Senate candidate Steve Dixon patronizing a strip club in Washington DC and while so doing making a variety of misogynist and racist remarks. Mr. Dixon has now resigned an issue. The does not reflect the person I am apology customary on occasions on which a public figure has done or said something reflecting on the person the when I finish work, and I'll help you never drink when you finish work, but we all do. I'm gonna put my hand on my heart. Have run as a young man being to strip clubs. I've done a whole lot of things. Most young men have done in this country. This was very far from the first scandal surrounding personal conduct of someone associated with one nation, and any bookmaker would be delighted to take your bit on it being the lust for as long as the party has existed. One nation has been a powerful magnet for crackpots. Ding, bats and Yahoos. But and he is the important and somewhat terrifying. Part exist run nation still does after more than two decades of contributing nothing to ustralia public discourse. But division paranoia and stupidity. You come to country you live under constitution in the Lauren. If you wanna have four or five. Do you wanna mutilated children? And if you want to treat women with right disrespect, this many countries you can live in. But none of them cold Estrada poll suggests that perhaps five percent Australia plan to vote for one nation, which is about what they got last time out in two thousand sixteen enough for four Senate seats, although in keeping with one nation tradition. This was reduced to their present to by infighting and incompetence gloriously given one nations hostelry to immigration one. Senator Malcolm Roberts had to resign upon discovering that he was a foreign citizen. His replacement Fraser ending who preferred to sit as an independent earned a richly merited measure of global infamy earlier this year by blaming the Christchurch mosque massacre on its victims. This is my land and RBIs going here. I don't know of any other place. As much as now, just because you're an average will is a week excuse. One nation founder emerged onto a straight national political landscape in nineteen ninety six when a stray is liberal party, which is a strenuous conservative party chose her as a candidate for the Queensland seat of Oxley the liberals then un-chinese her when she wrote a letter to a newspaper suggesting legislative efforts to make amends to a stray Leah's indigenous people had gone too far Hansen won the seat anyway as an independent and launched one nation shortly afterwards in her maiden speech to parliament, she reiterated her fact defying proposition that indigenous Australians were getting an easy ride and further fretted at the prospect of a strenuous. Hansen has moved on since then via picturesque political and personal upheavals, including a prison term for a fraud conviction to quashed, plus the inevitable appearances on reality television. And at one point falling out with the party. She'd founded more recently, she has been burgling about a string beans, Muslims and illustrated her terror of this prospect by wearing a burqa into the Senate chamber atypically pure oil stunt for which she was fiercely denounced by stray Leah's, then attorney General George Brandis enter ridicule that community to drive corner to its religious Gavin's is an appalling thing to do. And I would ask you. Looking back own the wretched one nation story tonight. It's possible to see him as pioneers in as much as someone has to have bad ideas. I the populist convulsions which have beset the United States and Europe in this century. Have looked dismally familiar to straightens accustomed to one nation's feral nostalgia at visting xenophobia and in persecution complex, obviously for the two hundred nineteenth time they were on. There is another Moroccan scum makes the streets unsafe. Video can comb what Nina goes control of our borders and put in place a positive immigration policy. I'm by main we won't Australian style point system. It would be wrong to describe one nation as a failure at least on the tones. They have regrettably attracted disproportionate attention from the media too easily seduced by the shabby thrilled with being seen to poke a bear with a stick. And because of this have too often succeeded in dragging mainstream conservatives towards this warm, but one nation remain fundamentally marginal proposition for two reasons which should be absorbed as lessons by other countries. The first is a stray Leah's compulsory vote. A powerful insulation against extremist entry is this second is that institutional and or ideological idiocy has a way of canceling itself out eventually. Twenty four. I'm andrew.

Australia house in London has also turned one hundred Australia houses, estrellas oldest diplomatic mission in historically, one of the most significant buildings so grant, it is inside that even scenes of a Harry Potter movie were filmed there. Samantha holy attended an event to Marcus intently, and she filed this report. So you could be there to it's jewel in Leah's overseas missions in all its historic glory. It stands in the center of London when you enter as so many historians have done over the decades, the grand marble hall. The elegant Stig Hase's the chandeliers the art on the walls, all speak of something very special. On this occasion. I've come to a stray your house to celebrate its one hundred year, which has it happens has coincided with the seventieth birthday of Prince Charles. Prince of Wales and his wife Camilla have also come to unveil a portrait birthday present from strategy. Standing in the grand marble, home and listening to the Australian High Commissioner, George Brandis recount a tale of time gone. By was so moving it almost brought me to tease, I don't know. If I was the only one when you Royal Highness's, great grandfather King, George the fifth laid the foundation stone on the twenty fourth of July nineteen thirteen no one foresaw the magnitude of the horror, which would a year later before the world. By the time. Australia house was opened five years later, just three months before the armistice Australia no longer needed to prove its nationhood by a statement in marble and timber. Because the more than three hundred thousand strategies who fought and the sixty sixty thousand who died in Gallipoli and on the western front had already proved that much more emphatically in flesh and blood, and you the day King, George the fifth open destroy your house on the third of August nine thousand nine hundred eighteen this exhibition hall as it is tonight was filled with distinguished guests to Mark the significance of the occasion. Taking pride of place. Among the leading citizens of the land was some three hundred wounded Australian servicemen specially invited by the High Commissioner Andrew Fisher. In thanking the king fishers said it is the earnest wish of the Commonwealth government that Australia house may be tangible sign to the people of the United Kingdom that their interests and those of their kinfolk in the great Commonwealth overseas. A common alike in peace and in war. And so over this past century has it proved to be. Prince Charles followed on Australia host was opened by may Greg grandfather, George the fifth in what were the grimmest of times. It was August nineteen eighteen and the tragic conflict that came to be known as the great war was by then in its final months. As we Mark the centenary of the great war earlier this month. So must we never forget that over a million British Australian and Commonwealth servicemen fought together with common purpose and tragically lost their lives. So that we could be here today. He was greeted by Rosie and affectionate cheers of Kui from Australian diggers in their slouch, hats gathered outside. Many of these men had fought at Gallipoli, passion, Dale or villas Britain New where their extraordinary courage and tenacity helped turn the tide of the war in nineteen forty those Australians who worked in this building for witness to the blitz and the devastation rolled around them. Once again Britain at the time of her greatest peril knew that. She did not stand alone. They're one in this country should forget the wartime. Message sent by prime minister Menzies and inscribed on the Australian war memorial at Hyde Park corner. Whatever burden you were to carry. We also will shoulder that burden. They're going to hardly be a more profound testament to friendship or one that is injured so well through peace and war prosperity. And hardship, in fact in all circumstances. Save perhaps an ashes test. So if you're in London pay a visit to a stranger house c. See all glory. It is yours after all. This is the mantra holy inland for correspondents report.
