Weekend Punch: Choose your own beverage
This week had some serious undertones. Here at The Punch we’ve been moved by two significant national discussions: the boat people crisis and domestic violence. Penbo tackled the latter by asking whether Grant Hackett really deserved our sympathy in the wake of his Sixty Minutes “tell-all” interview. And an anonymous reader bravely shared her own personal story of domestic abuse.
Our coverage of the boat people crisis started with MP Steve Georganas who implored both sides of politics to break their deadlock on the boats. A plea continued by Mal Farr who told The Greens we simply cannot afford to wait for the perfect time to get a solution.
In lighter news Tory S said we’ve failed in our attempts to make science sexy. Ant gave Bernard Tomic a slap around the ears, Tory M said women should get the same pay to do the same job as men. Lucy complained about our lack of good manners and Dan continued his merry way around the United States of America, even finding time for a beer with Paul Toohey.
