Cory Talks S03 E08 - Mon 8 Mar 2021
On this edition of Cory Talks…
It’s a sh*t show in Canberra at the moment. You’d be hard pressed to find an adult Australian who is not aware of the truly disturbing rape allegations in the nation’s capital and a claim of a historical rape involving a very senior Australian government minister and Senator. The Federal Government has a completely different stance on how to proceed (quite simply, closing the case). But Australian’s are angry and upset… and rightly so. I’ll present a timeline of events as they’ve happened since the last podcast.
There will be #March4Justice protest rallies around the country including at Parliament House Canberra on Monday 15th March at noon.

One admitted fault, accepted recommendations and promised change. The other flew into defensive mode.
