A housing commission background. A single mum of two children. A son addicted to ice, and a time - a dark time - that she wanted to end it all. Senator Jacqui Lambie knows a lot about the underdog. But behind the bolshy exterior is a woman who is surprisingly reasonable. The fierce Tasmanian independent has seen and been through a lot over the years, and she’s not afraid to talk about it. From that heated TV argument with Yassmin Abdel-Magied, to examining her love life and everything in between, this is a rare glimpse into the mind of a woman who believes more in fight than flight.
