    Coronavirus has brought Australia-China relations into focus. Hamish Macdonald examines the implications with Wang Xining, Stan Grant, Raina MacIntyre, Jason Yat-sen Li and Vicky Xu.

    Stan Grant? Oy! His input?

    Oh come on…they’re giving a Chinese embassy bloke a platform? ABC is just taking the piss now

    I cannot believe this abomination continues to limp along. Looks like a panel that will be in furious agreement to Hamish and each other.

    15 please Carpe.

    Hi Ellie

    Welcome back.

    Looks like you’re on Carpe duties tonight.

  12. Ellie

    I’m struggling, Doomlord! Stan Grant is talking in tongues! I need someone to translate. Alas; I think everyone has fallen asleep.

    Democratic China. I look forward to hearing the policies of the opposition parties.

  14. Ellie

    Attractive shaved head gal is talking about freedom of speech. No need for government approval. I agree.

  15. Ellie

    Ok. Everyone has fecked off. I understand.

  16. Sinclair Davidson

    Not surprised. Even by ABC standards this evenings topic sounded boring.

  17. Judging by the number of posts must have been a great show.

  18. mem

    Is it all over? Can I be last then. Surely worth a meritorious medal?

  19. nb

    Ahh, Australia is fundamentally racist. ABC identity on topic.

  20. Dave in Marybrook

    Did Hamish stride into the stands, Oprah-like to interview a cultivated questioner, as he did last week?

  21. Caveman

    Stan the Man , racist racist racist to infinity and beyond.

  22. nb

    Racist again. Vital contribution to the coronavirus discussion.

  23. Caveman

    It’s a China pile on, China’s don’t even trust each other anyway.

  25. A Svensen

  26. Ellie

    Am grateful for even numbers.

  27. Tom

    Welcome back, Ellie — and to the long-lost Q&A fred. Compulsory reading the morning after to keep track of the latest subjects the ABC is using to attack Australia.

  28. Ellie

    Hi Tom. I think the Q&A thread may be gone to God. I hope not. If so – it is meant to be.

  29. Carpe Jugulum

    Good morning troops

    Should be back on deck in a couple of weeks

  30. Anne Chung

    Yes who was the great singer??
