Sky News host Andrew Bolt has called on Indigenous Affairs Minister KenWyattMP to apologise for 'his part' in 'Australia's greatest literary hoax'.

Sky News host Andrew Bolt has called on Indigenous Affairs Minister Ken Wyatt to apologise for "his part" in "Australia's greatest literary hoax". Mr Wyatt should apologise for having promoted historian Bruce Pascoe, and for "sacking an advisor, a whistleblower who called Pascoe a fake," Mr Bolt said. Mr Bolt discussed Pascoe's book 'Dark Emu' which has been criticised for its accuracy.

Aboriginal lawyer and businesswoman, Josephine Cashman, who was the advisor that was sacked by Ken Wyatt, spoke to Mr Bolt about the unfolding issues. "I think I was sacked because I was asking too many questions," Ms Cashman said. "I was asking a lot of questions because there is - it's a fact - a lot of corruption in Aboriginal organisations". "Why do you think he's being defended like this, it's just quite extraordinary," Mr Bolt said.

Australia-UK free trade agreement won't 'matter a huge amount' | Sky News AustraliaThe free trade agreement soon to be struck between Australia and the United Kingdom may not “amount to a great hill of beans,” according to political consultant Jim Middleton.\n\n“What we know about this free trade deal is that (United Kingdom Prime Minister) Boris Johnson needs it. He has to show something as a consequence of Brexit that leaving the EU is not something which is going to cost Britain a great deal,” he told Sky News.\n\nMr Middleton said “something will emerge” from the talks because both Mr Johnson and Prime Minister Scott Morrison want it but it does not necessarily mean it will be worth much.\n\n“In general terms, free trade deals and bilateral agreements don’t really among to a great hill of beans, look, it’s not that long ago we were talking loudly and proudly about the free trade agreement with China, look where that’s ended up.”\n\n“They don’t matter a huge amount, but in terms of public projection for the British audience for Boris Johnson he needs it, Scott Morrison wants it, so there will be an announcement of some kind.”\n QAnonPM Is he trying to get Morrison to dance Zorba The Greek?

Will be interesting to track local supermarket on this one.
