Tory is the National Editor of The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald.
Today on Please Explain, Tory Maguire speaks with The Age's state political editor, Annika Smethurst, who wrote that shock findings from a leaked report on the failures of the Victorian hotel quarantine system will only add to the breakdown of trust between Australians and the people we choose to lead us - trust that had actually grown in 2020 during the height of the pandemic crisis.

NSW Police arrested four men on Wednesday over the alleged kidnap and assault of former international cricketer Stuart MacGill. It's alleged Mr MacGill was confronted in Cremorne by the brother of his partner on April 14 before being forced into a vehicle and driven more than 60 kilometres to a property, where three men allegedly assaulted him and threatened him with a firearm. He was dumped by his alleged kidnappers later in Belmore. Six days later, the incident was reported to police, who have charged the men for their alleged crimes. Today on Please Explain, Nathanael Cooper is joined by crime reporter Fergus Hunter to find out more about this bizarre series of events.

The COVID-19 situation in India is getting more grim as each day passes, and Australia’s response - cancelling all flights from there and threatening Australian citizens with jail if they try to come home, has certainly caused enormous distress to the Indian community here. Around 9000 Australians have registered with DFAT that they want to return from India, which has now reached 20 million cases and more than 200,000 deaths - figures widely believed to be massively under reported. Today on Please Explain, Tory Maguire speaks with health reporter Rachel Clun about the increasingly dire COVID-19 situation in India and the Australians who have been left to fend for themselves.

In a speech to special forces soldiers last year, Major-General Adam Findlay told his troops they must prepare for the high likelihood of conflict with China. Major General Findlay, who was the commander of the special forces at the time but has since stepped down, said China was already engaged in grey zone conflict, or conflict that occurs in the area between war and peace. The leak of the speech he made comes as the Department of Home Affairs secretary warned the “drums of war” were beating and the Australian government’s language on China has hardened. Today on Please Explain, Nathanael Cooper is joined by foreign affairs and national security correspondent Anthony Galloway to look at the growing tensions between Australia and China.
