It’s been a big week of Twitter outrage and #auspol on Crikey’s socials. Let’s rewind to some of the week’s crowning moments.

Can Lambie be trusted?

It appears we’re once again relying on Tasmanian Senator Jacqui Lambie to be the voice of reason and block the Liberal Party’s proposed university fee hike. But when we asked Crikey readers if Lambie could be counted upon to call out Education Minister Dan Tehan for his bitter attack on the university sector, the resounding answer was "no".

In the words of one reader, "she talks tough, delivers nought", while others drew comparisons to Lambie and One Nation Senator Pauline Hanson, believing she’d be easily talked around by the Coalition.
