Tony Jones: [cue; uphill; MP; commentator; self-confessed stirrer; percussionist ] I think we've got her. Well, that's all we have time for tonight. Please thank our panel, Sharman Stone, Joseph Tawadros, Germaine Greer, Lisa Singh and Theodore Dalrymple. And Joseph, that's your cue. Next Monday, Q&A will be joining by the man who featured on 4 Corners tonight, billionaire, businessman Clive Palmer, who's facing an uphill battle to retain his seat in Parliament; West Australian Labor MP Alannah MacTiernan, author, commentator and self-confessed stirrer  Jane Caro. We'll tell you the rest during the week. And we'll end tonight with performance by Joseph and his brother, the percussionist, James Tawadros, playing Forbidden Flute. Until next week's Q&A, Good night.
