Kieran joins Denise and Jeremy to discuss journalists vs naughty twitterers (Karvelas, Uhlmann) and a plethora of sudden surprise giant mines in addition to Adani. Amongst other things.
00:02:15 WinX captures the shameless bullshit of Scummo's redefinition of "a fair go"
00:05:07 Scummo's why work if you pay tax
00:07:50 Scummo's warning against adequate wages
00:26:12 dOnAtInG to Notre Dame
00:31:33 Frydenberg still screaming about his fictional "retiree tax"
00:41:17 Scummo's mob telling dumb lies about electric vehicles and "taking tradies utes"
00:46:16 Vanstone's generational war THINK OF HOW EASY YOUR GRANDPARENTS HAD IT WITH THEIR AFFORDABLE HOUSES AND JOB SECURITY and how much she hated having to provide social security to poor people when social security minister
00:54:18 Won't anyone think of the conservators? Chris Kenny beclowns himself again
00:58:59 Scummo presents parliament with his impression of some recent character work from a Mr Baron Cohen, a not at all racist caricature of what was until very recently the only nation that could launch a person into space, Kazakhstan
01:00:40 Scummo bu shi hen hao at all
As the 2019 election campaign becomes official, Lyndsey (from EFA and the #notmydebt campaign) and Ella (prominent campaigner against the cruelty that is ParentsNext) and Jeremy have a wide-ranging discussion about where things sit with RoboDebt, ParentsNext, the NDIS and the social security safety net in general, and what we can hope for depending on the makeup of the next parliament. Some cats also participate.
(This was our first three-person episode, so there are some technical issues we've got ideas for addressing in the next one.)
One Nation beclowns itself to the extent that even Scummo's Libs have to distance themselves. But if they have to draw the line on the small party on their side of politics for its vicious insanity, goddamnit, they'll do everything they can to force Labor to set loose the Greens for, well, being progressives. Or, according to Sky, anti-semitic urine-drinking extremist traitor vandals.

Somewhere in there we did discuss the NSW state election tomorrow, sort of, but look is anyone listening to this podcast in any danger of voting for the NSW ALP, let alone the Libs? You know the Libs have flogged off $70bn of public assets, and are busy wrecking the hospital system. Clearly they need to go. Maybe throw your vote to a party that cares about public services, then preference the ALP, and put the hideous Libs and even crazier far-right parties last. Good luck negotiating that ridiculous giant ballot paper! We'll be thinking of you.
