An opportunity with Labor Party Leader Bill Shorton, the opposition leader in Australia's Federal Parliament at a local Town Hall Meeting. The Baton is one of the EDFA's Pass The Baton for Eating Disorders batons. Bill did a radio interview on Perth Western Australia's 720 ABC drive program the following evening. At the Australian Federal Election next year this guy might be Australia's next Prime Minister.

If you want to listen to Bill’s radio interview this is the link https://www.abc.net.au/radio/perth/programs/drive/drive/10458394 go to the 1 hour 39 minutes part to hear what he said.
