What do you think will be the outcome of the Canning by-election - You Decide

Heard down the NSW corridors of power

“The redevelopment of George Street is going to cause a lot of chaos in the Sydney CBD”

“After suffering Clover’s cycle-ways I doubt whether anyone will notice much difference”

Heard down the Canberra corridors of power

“What do you think will happen if Turnbull terminates Hockey?”

“The Hockeyroos will have to take up netball”

Heard in the ABC conference room

“What’s your ultimate aim for Q&A?”

“A video question from the Islamic State”

Heard down the Canberra corridors of power

“Do you think there will ever be a Donald Trump in this country?”

“Well Clive had a go but he turned out to be worse than the politicians”

Heard down the Canberra corridors of power

“Are you going to ensure that the Syrian refugees coming to Australia will represent all sectors of their society?”

“Absolutely apart from not accepting any terrorists, union members, extremist politicians or members of the Assad family”
