Balls Radio
04 Jul 2017

In another return of Balls Radio Phil Dobbie questions the merit of Theresa May’s one percent cap on public sector wages. It’s a spurious argument to say that there isn’t the budget to pay these workers, when private sector wages are growing at 2 percent and inflation is close to 3 percent. Could this be the spark for a winter of discontent and an end to Theresa May’s leadership?

Balls Radio is back, with a new home, somewhere in the Surrey countryside. Shorter episodes, more often, but with the same quirkiness and lack of attention to detail.

A Britain isolated. A US ridiculed. An Australia divided. Politics is taking the world to a very ugly place. Still, lots for Balls Radio to make fun of.

What is Balls Radio?

Balls Radio is like talk radio, but for thinking people. Now a short daily occurrence, Phil Dobbie offers his opinions on what's happening, in the UK and overseas: politics, social policy, economics, science, religion. Yes, it's another, slightly overweight middle-aged white man telling the world how it should be. But there's nothing alt-right about Balls Radio. And we try and have fun along the way.
