Jacqui Lambie Right At Last

Jacqui Lambie has stepped aside from the Palmer United Party on principle. The final straw came with her opposition to the government’s rollback on some of Labor’s Future of Financial Advice (FOFA) reforms.

The original legislation had consumers opting-in every two years to ongoing financial commitments with their planners – the revision removed that, returning to the old way of not knowing how much you are paying or services you probably no longer receive.
So, at long last, we can see that Jacqui Lambie is a lady of principle. She may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but at least she has the electorate’s interests at heart.
It’s one of main stories discussed in this week’s Balls radio, including:
- Would Lambie have been elected without Clive?
- The FOFA reforms watered down to protect financial planners
- Richard Kazimer in the US
o Obama’s deportation relief
o NSA’s data retention rules
o Canada’s massive oil pipeline
o Bill Cosby – not such a nice guy?
- The naff Halal Vegemite debate (by stupid, racist people)
- George Christensen MP’s simmering hate
- Emily Thornbury MP’s image form Rochester – condescending, or spot on?
- Would you buy a house next to someone with national flags flying?
- David Campbell in New Zealand
o Getting chummy with China
o New Kiwi banknotes
o Valerie Adams, World Athlete of the Year
o Sausages saved man’s sliced finger
- ABC – 400 jobs gone – but how much will we miss?
- What’s the Big Idea with Brian Haverty
o Wine from the cloud
o New way to pay for parking
o Cocktail shaker in cars
o Banning sarcastic apologies
o Treatment for spitters

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.
