Mr Sonnenschein spoke to former treasurer Josh Frydenberg in part of a new Sky News Australia documentary 'Never Again: The Fight Against Antisemitism'.

Mr Frydenberg said for someone who came from Europe after the horrors of the Holocaust and says he's now “feeling unsafe and threatened, that's just not on”. “It’s a sign, if we needed another sign, of a comprehensive failure of leadership in this country from government, from our institutions, from law enforcement. “That’s seen this explosion of antisemitism in the last eight months since the tragedy of October 7.”

Former treasurer Josh Frydenberg has called for the Albanese government to take stronger actions to stop the rise of antisemitism in Australia. Josh Frydenberg spoke with Prime Minister Anthony Albanese in part of a new Sky News Australia documentary 'Never Again: The Fight Against Antisemitism'.

Child and adolescent psychologist Clare Rowe has criticised the Albanese government's spending on the mental health sector claiming the money is not going where it is most desperately needed. Ms Rowe's remarks come as the government earlier in the month revealed in the federal budget it will spend $588 million over eight years to set up a low-intensity digital mental health service. “I think mental health is the only sector where the more money we spend the worse it gets,” Ms Rowe told Sky News host Rita Panahi. “One of the issues I have is the government says they're going to commit to something like $580 million to come up with some type of online platform where Aussies can call up telehealth. “So very low-intensity calls that were not talking about clinical depression, we're talking about catching people early. “I’m worried that if you are more severely depressed … there are very few places for them to go to unless they're willing to fork out for the private system.” If you or anyone you know needs help: Kids Helpline – 1800 55 1800 Lifeline – 13 11 14 Beyond Blue – 1300 22 4636

From tonight, our timeshare trades on the New York Stock Exchange will settle in a single day, and Canada's and Mexico's exchanges are on the cusp of doing the same. India has already moved to a one-day settlement process. A month ago, the ASX published a working paper on moving to T+1 from its current two-day settlement period, but the failure to replace the ageing CHESS system has caused complications. The ASX conceded if it goes head-along to a T+1 system, it will divert resources away from the CHESS replacement project, potentially creating disruption and technological challenges.
