The nation is in an uproar that Frances Abbott — the daughter of Prime Minister Tony Abbott — received a $60,000 design degree scholarship, but what do you think?

Les Taylor, chairman of Sydney’s Whitehouse Institute of Design and a longtime friend of Tony Abbott, says Frances Abbott was awarded her $60,000 scholarship on merit. Some of her classmates disagree, saying that the school doesn’t even offer scholarships and other students would have been more deserving.

Earlier this week, we asked what you thought of graffiti, and it turns out you’re not big fans — 54 per cent of you said it’s simply vandalism, 43 per cent think it’s OK if the artist has the property owner’s permission, and just 3 per cent of you think graffiti is art, no matter the circumstances. Sorry, Banksy!
