Read the Room: The Eric Abetz Loyalty Test

In the Australian Senate last week, a group of Chinese-Australian witnesses - giving evidence about multiculturalism and social cohesion - were asked by Liberal Senator Eric Abetz to condemn the Chinese Communist Party. The episode comes at a time of increasing tensions in the relationship between Australia and China, and led to widespread condemnation of Abetz and his line of questioning.

Joining Read the Room's Osman Faruqi and Madeline Hayman-Reber this week was Osmond Chiu, a research fellow with think tank Per Capita, and one of three witnesses grilled by Abetz on their loyalty.
