Jacqui Lambie: An Aussie rebel with a cause

Step out of the mainstream political story with Jacqui Lambie’s debut memoir, Rebel With A Cause.

Love her or hate her, you can’t deny she’s a fighting cause and unapologetically Australian.

“I’ve been a bit of a rebel all my life, I’ve always had a cause, I’ve always wanted to fight for the underdog.”

Writing about her misspent youth and her fair of contact with Tasman police, she tells Alan Jones she has enormous respect for the court system.

“I had a few early experiences in the court system… I’ll tell you what, it scared the crap of me.”

“I do have a great deal of respect for them.”

On the incredibly publicised story of her son’s ice addiction, Jacquie says she was “screaming for help.”

“I wasn’t dealing with Dylan then, I was dealing with a drug.”
