We’d like to welcome you to INQ, Crikey’s ambitious new inquiry journalism initiative. Starting June 24, INQ investigative reporting — lifting the rocks, connecting the dots, following the money trail and exposing misuse of power — will appear regularly in Crikey.
We look forward to sharing this exciting new phase with you.

Good morning, early birds. Police have dismissed speculation that the perpetrator of yesterday's Flinders Street attack in Melbourne had any links to terrorist organisations.

It's the news you need to know, with Max Chalmers, bringing you the final edition of Crikey Worm for 2017. But don't worry, he'll be back to deliver your morning dose of news and current affairs in January.
