Back in August Paula Rebstock, a former commerce commission head and therefore the most appropriate person to make these sorts of life-and-death decisions, released her welfare working group’s issue paper which set us off like a firecracker in episode 50 (highlight here). Rebstock is back this week, with her group’s recommendations. Claiming our economy cannot support our society, she makes the dual mistake of forgetting that it’s our society that should come before our economy in that sentence, and that economies do tend to behave rather catastrophically when you base them on bullshit figures.
Hillary’s been here for a visit. Which was nice. Pity her country went completely to shit while she was away from it. Noam Chomsky has a yarn about shenanigans, Dan and Dave triumphantly enter parliament on visitor’s open day to check out the naughty chair.

update: HEY! well it turns out we talked about ACT again! Specifically David Garret and his online dating conquests, among other things. Hurrah.
Teachers are striking. I bet it’s because they’re greedy little masked bandits hellbent on holding the nation’s children to ransom. What say you? We corral a real live teacher into the studio to hear their terrible demands. WARNING: What you’re about to hear my shock you.
Today we recap our interaction with the Coastal Coalition, and the steamy depths of wacky beliefs held by other, smirking, ACT party affiliates, including their boners for stuff like Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor rally and Ayn Rand, homicide groupie, because to people who hate other people, apparently this video is sublime:
