What's the beef about burkas?

We’ve all become so paranoid about the Islamic State that politicians are now using the Burqua (they actually mean Nijabs) as an excuse to speak out against the broader Muslim religion. Calm down people, it’s a piece of clothing!

On this week’s Balls radio we ask what everyone else has been asking – is a Nijab more confronting than the sight of Tony Abbott in speedos. Whilst on more important matters, we discuss whether the world is actually out by 12 minutes. Time to adjust those clocks again.
This week’s running order:
Clock changes confuse sheep
PM scared of women’s clothing
Richard Kazimer’s US report:
- Secret Service Head steps aside
- Getting out of fossil fuel investments
- Texas school books
- Michael Dunn convicted
- Yoga pants
Maurice Newman sets sights on Bureau of Meteorology
John Dobbie’s UK report:
- Tories try to remove UK from more of Europe
- Top Gear team upsets the Argentinians
- Department store boss upsets the rench
- Scotts claim we’ve all got the wrong time
We have eradicated half all wildlife
What’s the Big Idea, with Brian Haverty
- Planes with bunkbeds
- Foreign experiences without going anywhere
- Total internet visibility
- Abolishing punctuation
Tony Bennett tops Billboard album charts, again

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.
