Ben Fordham has slammed the erection of a fence separating diggers from a dawn service in Victoria.
A wire fence was set up along Melbourne’s Shrine of Remembrance for the dawn service, with just 1400 people allowed into the ticketed event.
“How ridiculous, how demeaning,” Ben said.
“The disrespect shown to our veterans is a disgrace.
“They did not go to war just to be treated like POW’s in their own country.
“That image will haunt the Victorian government.”
