Left, Right and Centre: The Fab Four, United Once More (07/07/09)

10Jul09

It was a show that saw the return of Casey (bachelor of readology in tow) and Tim win fast money with the underwhelming score of one point, angering Mateo (the sore loser). Subscribe to the podcast of the show, or download this week’s show directly.

This week, caffeinated crusaders Timothy, Mateo, Casey and Christopher chattered idly about:

Party (political) Trucks

What’s the best way to convince the Australian public that you’re the best political party to lead the nation forward? Why, a big ol’ truck of course! The federal opposition has revived the quote-unquote “debt truck”, which has been living in the lap of luxury in retirement since the 1996 election campaign. They plan to take it around the nation, to expose the ‘reckless’ amount of foreign debt.¬† It carries the slogan “Labor’s debt bombshell.” To retaliate, the Labor party have dropped their own bomb, in the form of another debt truck, proclaiming that “Australia has the lowest debt level of any major economy”.

Both parties deny that the trucks are merely political stunts.

South Australian Liberal Meltdown

The Liberal goes behind closed doors to decide on a new leader this week. We now know that the successful candidate is Isobel Redmond. Will this lead to a more stabilised party, and can they win the next election? Probably not, and almost certainly not.

Rapid Fire News

Music:

  • In Context, by Field Music, because the only thing better than music in a field is contextual music in a field.
  • Come Home, by The Lovetones, because the only thing better than lovely tones is lovely tones while at home.
  • Sittin’ On Top of The World, by Howlin’ Wolf, because the only thing better than a howlin’ wolf is sitting on top of a howlin’ wolf.
  • The Boy With The Thorn In His Side, by The Smiths, because the only thing better than a metalworker is a metalworker in pain.
  • Cello Song, by The Books (ft. Jose Gonsalez), because the only thing better than a book is a book about cellos.

All done.
