Chris Wallace, Paul Bongiorno, Bevan Shields – Election Wrap-Up

One Nation Divided

At the end of May journalist Chris Wallace told us here, in our very bookshop, that the election would end up with a hung parliament. Counting continues but that's exactly what it's looking like happening!

So our panel of experts is coming back to talk us through what happened. Labor is calling it a victory. The Coalition is saying they will form government (with, it looks like, the help of the member for Kennedy) and Pauline Hanson says 98% of Australians don't believe in Halal.

Did Malcolm Turnbull's gamble to call a double dissolution election work? Have the people become disillusioned with the political class and turned their backs on the Hill? What does the return of Pauline Hanson to the red chamber say about politics? 

So many questions and, no doubt, opinions! So after a mammoth eight week campaign Chris Wallace, Paul Bongiorno and Bevan Shields return to Muse to discuss these and much, much more. Hear! Hear!
