2019 is almost over but not without one more election episode of News Fighters, this time from the U.K. (sorry Bougainvilleans!) Is this election about Brexit, the NHS or is it just one long argument over whether numbers are a left wing conspiracy? We look at all the hilarious and headache inducing gaffes from the campaign so far and then dial in author and the producer/presenter of Russell Brand’s Trews Reports, John Rogers to give us some actual election insight and analysis. Check out John’s website at http://thelostbyway.com/
Also in case you missed it we did a whole episode on Boris Johnson when he became PM back in July:
We got a new episode out in your feeds and on Youtube!
While a bushfire crisis and catastrophic drought engulfs the country, Australia’s politicians think it’s the perfect time to start blaming each other and triggering their opponents. We also look at Barnaby Joyce’s failed magnetism, Rupert Murdoch’s climate denier denial, Alan Jones’ cow obsession and why Scott Morrison should send thoughts and prayers to himself!
Out now! It’s our double-double length look at the unpredictable 2019 Canadian election. We look at all the political parties’ bad 90’s-rock style theme songs, why Justin Trudeau can’t escape the brown face incident, Andrew Scheer’s weird pants-based catchphrases, the multicultural racism of Quebec and how Australia could provide an answer to Canada’s political uncertainty. Also expect Rush and Bryan Adams jokes.
In the fourth and final episode of our pilot week guest host Dan Ilic cherry picks at Energy Minister Angus Taylor’s appearance on Insiders this morning. Also ABC broadcaster and American political podcaster Josh Szeps drops by to talk Scott Morrison in Washington, the 2020 Democrat candidates and the most important issue on breakfast television. And finally we check in with our new finance reporter Rodney Todd.
As part of our daily show pilot week, host Jake Stone deconstructs the headlines of the week you may have missed, then The Chaser’s Chris Taylor talks us through all the political clips from the week including all the Gladys-related gaffes.
