7.45 Today is the International Day of Peace and the UN have declared the theme to be partnerships for peace. Australia marked this partnership with the decision to send p;anes to bomb Syria.
Sue talked to Dr Margaret Beavis, Vice President of the Medical Association for the Prevention of War about the way this decision was taken by Abbott without a vote by parliament. The Medical Association for the prevention of war has also protested the impact of bombing on civilians and Margaret urged people to protest the escalation of Australian involvement in the Syrian conflict by complaining to their local MP.

8.00 Front Page - digital edition

8.15 Jane Morrell from Carer Solutions, our regular guest on Monday Breakfast, came into the studio to talk about the roll out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) that was finally signed off by Malcolm Turnbull as one of his first acts in office, which had a certain irony as he can't claim credit for this initiative. Jane also talked about the controversial decision to advertise for new NDIS board members apparently without informing the existing board.
