Waterstreet off Q&A panel. Sydney barrister Charles Waterstreet's controversial appearance on tonight's special Q&A panel discussing the #MeToo movement has been scrapped. The ABC announced this morning that Waterstreet had withdrawn on advice from the NSW Bar Association. "It is disappointing Mr Waterstreet will not be able to contribute to the perspectives canvassed in tonight’s discussion," the statement said. 

The decision to include Waterstreet on the panel was widely criticised, mostly due to claims (which he denies) of workplace sexual harassment against him.
