Biloela family

Yesterday a journalist sidled up to me at the latest Melbourne Federal Circuit Court matter relating to the Biloela family and said “Morrison has just spoken out; he’s not going to intervene".

After a short pause they lowered their voice even further and said, “Dutton won’t stop lashing out now, I wonder if…”

They trailed off but the tone was familiar; as was the resigned posture, the ashen face, the fear.
