Hamish McDonald asks Tim Wilson if participating in the Hong Kong protests was an appropriate way to engage with the region in a constructive way.
Jenny Li asked: The Hong Kong problem eventually is an economic problem, which really has less to do with freedom and democracy. Democracy can be a weapon, if used by selfish and uneducated people, it could only harm themselves. I am surprised that Liberal MP Tim Wilson could not see that. Could the Liberal Party focus more on our own economy rather than other people's affairs? I guess that was why we voted for your guys: we want you to improve Australia’s economy, so we can live comfortably, and don't have to go to street and protest against our government.

Q&A is a television discussion program that focuses mostly on politics but ranges across all of the big issues that set Australians thinking, talking and debating.
It is driven by interaction: Q&A provides a rare opportunity for Australian citizens to directly question and hold to account politicians and key opinion leaders in a national public forum and Q&A is broadcast live so that not only the studio audience but also the wider audience can get involved.
We aim to create a discussion that is constructive, that reflects a diverse range of views and that provides a safe environment where people can respectfully discuss their differences.
It’s impossible to represent every view on a single panel or in one audience but we’re committed to giving participants a fair go.
In order to be as inclusive and diverse as possible, the program is presented from a range of locations around the country and all Australians are encouraged to get involved through social media as well as by joining the audience.
This is an official Australian Broadcasting Corporation YouTube channel.
