Balls Radio has spotted a new theme song for the Liberal party. For the backbenchers who lost the spill vote, “It’s Only Just Begun”, and for a party led by Malcolm Turnbull and Julie Bishop “working together day by day, together”. It’s a daggy song, but it might just work.

What a great idea for Australia to give Prince Phillip a knighthood. Well, Tony Abbott thinks it was a good idea, but he is probably the only one. Apart from Professor Flint, another royal lover. So, Dame Camilla next year?

Let`s socialise

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.
