Question Time and the Afghanistan Debate Live
Bob Brown wants us to pull out of Afghanistan, Alexander Downer says the time has come to negotiate with the Taliban, and both major parties have so far stuck to the line our mission there is train the Afghan National Army in Oruzgan and nothing more (although the Coalition has argued for increased resources).

Join us here from 2pm for live coverage of Question Time, followed directly by the commencement of the debate.
