Tony Abbott’s US Comedy Tour

ichard Kazimer describes the Aussie PM’s visit to the US as a comedy tour, featuring an aborted attempt to introduce a coalition of the unwilling on climate change and a faux pas over the Presidential gift.

Still, Abbott does assure us that he and the president are on the same page with regards to the climate. Really? He obviously wasn’t paying attention. We also discuss more random shootings in the US and the resurgent violence in Iraq.
Iraq is also part of the discussion with John Dobbie, who raises Tony Blair’s denial that western involvement in the country has anything to do with the ongoing trouble. We had to be there to look for the weapons of mass destruction, remember?
Also this week, your Balls host Phil Dobbie gives three good reasons why NSW shouldn’t sell off its electricity poles and wires. They should stay in the private sector. But, yes, Mike Baird we’d still like all the infrastructure you planned. The two aren’t mutually exclusive.
Finally Brian Haverty describes the latest movie trend – we’ve gone from silent pictures to sound, from black and white to colour, from 2G to 3G, what’s next?

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.
