The prime minister says ‘there is real concern about Sudanese gangs’ but Christopher Pyne clearly didn’t get the memo
A major polling company doing focus groups in Melbourne a couple of months back was surprised when the subject of African gangs started coming up from participants unprompted, during conversations about an entirely unrelated federal policy issue.
Perhaps not that surprising, given some of the media attention on the issue. Depressing obviously, but not surprising. In any case, the level of unprompted agitation was sufficient enough to be noticeable.
