Whatever happened to Paul Higgins in Melbourne? Apart from always being away every second week, this seems more consistent, been a few straight weeks now…

Didn’t he have a public go at the ABC a month or so ago again?

Probably in the naughty corner.

Not aware re that.

Was probably on his last chance after the Covid breach.

Not so much had a go but made some tweets about how Q&A wasn’t live based on screenshots including the panel’s watches. Interesting but possibly not a good career move in the way it could have been taken.

Well sounds like a multi month suspension then.

(By the way, how delayed was QandA?)

He’s probably on holidays. If he had resigned he would mention it on air. But if he’d been sacked there’d be articles online. I feel like he’s been off more than Tamara has this year.

It’s a week before Christmas, who cares.

Think it was only about 12-15 minutes at the time.

Well he has been off since last month which is why the question is being asked.

More cost cutting? Hasn’t it just been Christmas Day which has been national previously?

Yes, it now seems to have extended over three days.
