Hockey promises "No new rabbits"

Joe Hockey, the Australian Treasurer, has had a brainwave. If he uses the word “rabbit” when he really means “tax”, people won’t get so upset. Find out why in this week’s Balls Radio.

To show there are no budget cuts at Balls radio, this week we have a particularly long episode. Here’s the running order:
1. London – city of selfies
2. Monty Python’s take on the budget
3. Let’s call tax “rabbits”
4. Richard Kazimer in the US:
• Wild fires in California
• Michelle Obama’s school separation warning
• Homelessness and inequality
• Privacy and health records
5. A very long listener letter
6. John Dobbie in the UK
• Sunday Times Rich List
• Uri Geller’s statue
• UKIP’s double standards
• The equation to get your girl
• Stephen Sutton – an inspiration
7. David Campbell in New Zealand

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.
