Dan Tehan attempts to foist his ideologies upon the ARC
Show Notes

Education Minister  Dan Tehan has decided he will add a "national interest" clause to the approval of Australian Research Council (ARC) grants.
The Minister has justified his decision by point to a few rather esoteric grants and asked whether or not they would pass the pub test, and those grants probably wouldn't pass Mr Tehan's scientific test, but many thins which has advance the state of humanity would never have passed any test if they had first sought public approval before proceeding. The national interest clause simply gives the government the power to promote its ideologies.
