4BC – Neil Breen calls Heston Russell ‘the most offensive thing’ he’s ever heard
Heston joined Neil Breen in Studio with 4BC – Monday 09 May as pre polling opens across the nation.
Have a listen:
Neil Breen has experienced “a hairy moment” with senate hopeful Heston Russell after making quite the faux pas.
The Australian Values Party Leader joined Breenie in the studio this morning to discuss his campaign for a senate seat.

Neil Breen: “-not across your detail. I’m only kidding!”
Heston Russell: “Oh geez Louise, that’s probably one of the most offensive things I’ve ever heard…
“You can call me anything else but-
Neil Breen: “Not the Albo of the Senate!”
Heston Russell: “- not a guy whose near-death experience was a car crash he walked away from.”
