Inside Politics: Politicians tested in the wake of Sydney stabbing attacks

The Morning Edition

18-04-2024 • 22 mins

The past week has seen two shocking stabbing attacks by lone actors in Sydney - one in the city’s east, and one in its west.

Both incidents have horrified the community, but the attack against a Bishop at an Assyrian Christian church on Monday evening has prompted a particularly strong political response.

These two destabilising events represent a test of Australia’s social cohesion, and a test of our political leaders’ capacity to nurture tolerance within the community at a time of great international tensions.

Joining Jacqueline Maley to discuss is political correspondent Paul Sakkal, national security correspondent Matthew Knott, and chief political correspondent David Crowe.
