Digging ditches for womens day

Tony Abbott celebrated International Womens' Day by digging ditches, something he described in his college days as a job for men. 

Back in his college days, as President of Sydney Uni Student Union, Tony Abbott explained the difference between men and women. Men, for example, are more likely to be digging ditches. How apt then, that he spent part of the International Womens Day digging the dirt to kick start WestConnex. One of a myriad of stories on this week’s Balls Radio.

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.
