CPAC Ah yes, the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC), the hard-right American group whose conference is, in the words of our correspondent Guy Rundle "a Woodstock/Deadhead gathering for every right-wing loon in the country". Last time it cropped up in the news, a mega-conference in Washington was the site of a COVID-19 scare as well as Donald Trump managing to violate the consent of an inanimate object – giving the American flag a big snog.
Good news! Its Australian arm -- launched in 2019 -- is returning. According to an email from the organisation, "the largest and most prominent conference for conservatives and libertarians in Australia" will be held in November in Sydney.
