Nope, fortunately despite the title this post is definitely is not about the tediously infamous Pete George1. 😈
Instead Andrew Geddis appears to be up to his neck in the mire of organising “Debating ‘Dirty Politics’: Media, Politics and Law”, at a ‘scholarly’ debate on Friday from 1pm-4pm. The key features that indicate that it is a scholarly debate is the long-winded format and that they have scheduled it inside non-academic’s work hours.
Andrew Geddis suspiciously manages to give some very specific insider details…
1:00-1:15: Opening interview with Mr Nicky Hager
1:15-2:05: Media panel with Dr Rosemary Overell; Dr Holly Randell Moon; Dr Brett Nicholls and Dr John Farnsworth.
2:05-2:55: Politics panel with Dr Bryce Edwards and Professor Richard Jackson.
2:55-3:45: Law panel with Professor Paul Roth and Professor Ursula Cheer
3:45-4:00: Closing remarks from Mr Nicky Hager
I’m sure that the levels of scholarly speculation will be brimming with polite disagreement. But it looks like it will be worth watching later on while quaffing a beer at the end of the day.
It will be live streamed on youtube and hopefully they will provide a offline link even if they don’t provide the refreshments.
