‘Remind me how old you are’: 15-year-old Q&A panellist stuns Tony Jones

This weeks episode of Q&A saw high school students sit beside politicians on the panel to discuss Australia’s biggest issues.

One particular student stole the show with his meticulously worded answers to various questions, especially one regarding Tony Abbott’s new position in the government as special envoy on Indigenous affairs.

That student is Dylan Storer, a 15-year-old teen from Western Australia.

The panel was discussing how Abbott could help address low school attendance in Indigenous communities around the country when Dylan made a powerful statement about his new role – a statement which, evidently, resounded with the audience and plenty of viewers at home.

Host Tony Jones was so surprised at Dylan’s answers that he forgot how young the boy really is, while Labor senator Penny Wong also took the time to praise the bright young student.
