Earlier this week, she retweeted an article about Julian Leeser’s resignation and commented: “Much respect for @JulianLeeser, courage and integrity.”
In this episode of The Briefing, we speak with Jacqui Munro, Member for the NSW legislative council, a Liberal who is for the Voice, about how she came to that position, and what the implications are for Peter Dutton and the rest of the party.
