DOES AUSTRALIA NEED A DONALD TRUMP?
With Tom Switzer, Parnell McGuinness, James Morrow and Miranda Devine
Join us after work for drinks and canapes in Sydney on April 3 as we debate whether Australia needs a disruptive leader like Donald Trump.
He has turned US politics upside-down by mocking the media, provoking critics, cutting bureaucracies, setting ambitious targets and pursuing them with the unpredictability of a world-class negotiator. By doing so, Donald Trump has revived investment, employment, share prices, consumer confidence and US global power, not to mention grass-roots patriotism.
Australian politicians, meanwhile, are constrained by Canberran conventions. Could we use a maverick? Could a shrewd outsider with a showbiz streak do to Australia what Trump has done for the US? Join us as our two panels – Miranda Devine and James Morrow (for) and Tom Switzer and Parnell McGuinness (against) – imagine the consequences.
