According to The Age a group of eight students staged a protest inside Liberal party headquarters this morning.

The students were opposing reforms to higher education proposed by the ruling Abbott government.

The protests interrupted a wine delivery reportedly worth over $AUD1,000 (£564) and police were called to the scene but no arrests were made.

News the Abbott government spends anything on wine may come as a surprise following recent criticism of the state of the government cellar.
