September 13: deaths in custody, school chaplaincy and Abbot Point


In this week’s show we take a look at the week in politics, From Julia Gillard at the Royal Commission to fights over sandwiches in South Australia. We also look at deaths in police custody and what the government is planning for the school chaplaincy program. The government is considering plans for the Abbot Point dredge spoil that could take it away from the Great Barrier Reef – so is it a win for the environment? We also explain what the opposition is saying about cuts to higher education.
