YASSMIN THAT NEVER ENDS – Just because she’s temporarily gone to England, doesn’t mean she’s forgotten. In fact, if – as “The Sydney Morning Herald” reader you should – you are missing Yassmin Abdel-Magied, here is more Yof assmin Abdel-Magied; almost 5000 words about her.

Abdel-Magied is angry about many things. Two months have passed since the Anzac Day post, yet The Australian newspaper is still sending journalists to her public engagements.

The storm that swirled around Abdel-Magied has shattered something quite deep in her. “I feel betrayed by my country,” she says.
“Good Weekend” indeed.
