    Young Nationals resign after after ABC investigation reveals alt-right push

    At least 15 members of the NSW Young Nationals have resigned following an investigation by the ABC's Background Briefing programinto an alt-right push inside the party.

    They include at least four men identified in the investigation as being involved in a plot by Australia's alt-right movement to join and influence major political parties.

    Those men are: Clifford Jennings, Oscar Tuckfield, Michael Heaney and Thomas Brasher.

    The group resignations were sent in two letters emailed to the NSW executive of the National Party this afternoon.

    One letter, titled "resignation in protest", listed the names of the 15 Young Nationals and announced, "There will be a few more to follow".

    The other letter, "An Open Defence, by Clifford Jennings" accused the National Party of being complicit in a "trial by media" and questioned the party's immigration policy.
