Former Australia Post Chief Executive Christine Holgate, who sensationally lost her job last November after it was revealed she had gifted four Cartier watches to some of her executives two years prior, yesterday grabbed her chance to speak out on the issue with both hands.

In a Senate Estimates hearing Ms Holgate accused Prime Minister Scott Morrison of bullying her out of her job, said that during the scandal she had become suicidal, and that the chair of Australia Post should resign.

Today on Please Explain, Tory Maguire speaks with federal political reporter Lisa Visentin about Ms Holgate’s accusation of bullying by the Prime Minister.
