Christine Holgate stands up to PM over watches scandal

Former Australia Post chief executive Christine Holgate, who sensationally lost her job last November after it was revealed she had gifted four Cartier watches to executives two years before, yesterday grabbed her chance to speak out on the issue with both hands.

In a Senate Estimates hearing, Ms Holgate accused Prime Minister Scott Morrison of bullying her out of her job, said that during the scandal she had become suicidal, and that the chair of Australia Post should resign.

Wearing “suffragette white”, Ms Holgate didn’t hold back.

Today on Please Explain, Tory Maguire speaks with communications reporter Lisa Visentin about Christine Holgate’s accusation of bullying by the Prime Minister.
