Time for Pyne to breakup with Lomborg

Media Release
Lee Rhiannon 11 May 2015

Australian Greens spokesperson for higher education Senator Lee Rhiannon today said Education Minister Christopher Pyne should give up on trying to find a home for Bjorn Lomborg and spend his time prioritising students and university staff.

"Minister Pyne is desperately running around to find a university to host the Bjorn Lomborg show when he should be focusing on how to use the federal budget to put students, staff and universities first ," said Senator Rhiannon.

"The only "consensus" Minister Pynes needs to accept is that fee deregulation is dead and higher education need a desperate injection of funds so that Australia can continue to have world class universities," said Senator Rhiannon.
