Australia correspondent Annika Smethurst joins Kathryn to talk about federal government moves to tighten visa processes for migrant workers and international students - part of measures it says are necessary to crack down on the "broken" migration system.

She'll also talk about why Australia's High Commissioner to the UK, Stephen Smith, has stopped an Australia Day event in London from going ahead and who's likely to take over as Queensland's premier after Annastacia Palaszczuk's shock resignation at the weekend.
