The ABC has got itself a bit of a scoop on Q&A this Thursday night.
Yesterday it announced its guest line-up for this week’s debate on “The Economy” would include Wayne Swan and Julie Bishop.
By the end of the day Bishop was no longer in the portfolio.
As a result ABC now has the first head-to-head tussle between Wayne Swan and Joe Hockey, the new Shadow Treasurer, live on air.
They will be joined by National Secretary of the Australian Workers’ Union, Paul Howes; Greens Deputy Leader, Christine Milne; and Kate Carnell, the Chief Executive Officer of the Australian Food and Grocery Council.
Hosted by Tony Jones, Q&A includes questions from a studio audience and home viewers via abc.net.au/qanda
