I just can’t sit through a whole hour of this biased drivel anymore.
With three panel members nodding away in agreement with each other and with Barrie, what is the point?
And their technical knowledge of policy details and the processes of government is just abysmal.
Take Karen ‘golly gosh’ from the SBS. She really had no idea about the issues surrounding the super-trawler decision and seemed to think that the fact that the fishing quota had not been fully utilised confirmed the government’s decision.
And what’s a bit of sovereign risk, anyway, according to George. If we had a bit more sovereign risk, the dollar could be lower because foreigners would love us less and we would all be better off. Honestly!!!!!!!!!!
Barrie of course served up the ‘just tell me what you want to tell me’ questions to our Tanya. Cuts? No, according to our Health Minister (say no more), just savings.
I really want someone to tell me what the 10,000 public servants in the Commonwealth Department of Health actually do. No fat? Come off it, Minister. It is all fat and Barrie should be asking the hard questions. After all, the Commonwealth Department of Health does not actually provide any health services.
Talking about cuts (note to Coalition – slash the ABC allocation) – Insiders is an obvious candidate. And another obvious candidate – Q&A which has just become a left-wing faux comedy masquerading as a program about serious policy questions.
