Q+A on ABC TV – This week on Q+A… Australia after the referendum. On Saturday the nation voted not to enshrine an Indigenous Voice to Parliament in the Constitution. So what comes next? And what does it mean for First Nations people?

Meanwhile, the eyes of the world are on the Middle East, as Israel strikes back against the deadly attacks by Hamas, vowing that Gaza “will never return to what it was”. With a ground offensive looming, it’s feared the conflict could leader to a wider war in the region. What do the coming weeks hold?

And a win for quiet diplomacy, with journalist Cheng Lei back home in Australia after three years’ detention in China. Her release comes ahead of the PM’s visit to Beijing and has been celebrated as “a moment of sunshine for all Australians”. Does this herald a further easing of tensions with China?

Q+A is live from Melbourne tonight, Monday October 16, at 9.35pm AEDT.

Joining Patricia Karvelas on the panel live in Melbourne:

Alexander Downer, Former Foreign Affairs Minister 

Patrick Gorman, Assistant Minister to the Prime Minister

Lidia Thorpe, Independent Senator for Victoria
