Governments are lessons in mediocrity

There's a chance Donald Trump could be the next US President. Is the world destined for mediocre leadership?

A Tory government has given Australia rising debt, flatlined education standards, rising emissions, a weak dollar and unaffordable housing. Mind you, it could be worse - have a listen to the GOP debate on Fox News this last week. Donald Trump for President? Seriously?

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.
