    "I am honoured and humbled to receive the J A Aird Memorial Prize in Public Policy and am thankful for the generosity of the Institute of Public Administration, Victoria. This award is significant because among other things, it will fund the creation of a current affairs project I am working on that is similar to Firing Line, where individuals debate public policy, politics and philosophy on television."
