Dut­ton in a Crabby mood

The Morning Bulletin - - NATION -

CAB­I­NET Min­is­ter Peter Dut­ton has hit out at “largesse” at the ABC, crit­i­cis­ing a de­ci­sion to send a spe­cial crew to Lon­don for the royal wed­ding.

The min­is­ter said he couldn’t un­der­stand why the tax­payer-funded broad­caster flew pre­sen­ters Annabel Crabb and Jeremy Fer­nan­dez to the UK for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s nup­tials.

But the broad­caster de­fended the spe­cial cov­er­age of the wed­ding.

“ABC au­di­ences ex­pect more than sim­ply a live feed and news re­ports of such a ma­jor event,” it said.
