Pearls & Irritations has become an exploratory platform for thinkers and analysts out to both share their insights and knowledge and test themselves against an informed peer group. In that way, John Menadue’s website adds real value across all aspects of Australia’s governance and policy development. It has become an antidote to mainstream media’s propensity for populism, prejudice and exploitable ignorance.
Quentin Dempster is a former senior journalist from the ABC, and former Chairman of the Walkley Foundation. He is a contributing editor at the New Daily.
