I did a live Skype session on Australia’s ABC News 24’s programme The World to talk about the #Budgie9, the nine Australian men who were arrested in at the F1 party in Sepang last weekend for wearing swimming trunks that have the Malaysian flag design on it while acting ‘indecent’. I discussed the issue with news anchor Beverly O’Connor.
