Those of you who follow our twitter may already know this (and it’s not going to come as a shock to the rest of you) but Dan got into a scuffle the other week.

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.

PRIORITY MAIL! OPEN IMMEDIATELY! WIN MILLIONS OF DOLLARS! TURN INTO A DOUCHEBAG! HANG AROUND IN WATERFRONT BARS! BECOME PRIME MINSTER!
BONUS: Hear us talk nicely about Pansy Wong two seconds before she was forced to resign. Dan’s been singing the praises of Brownlee all week since this.
Moral high ground on the Paul Henry debacle? Not us! We accidentally fill a whole episode with the sort of talk that everybody who is capable of thinking is thinking. Includes a contextual history lesson, thanks to Dan, which makes Paul Henry’s comments even stupider than they were before.
Babies! And homeless mental people. Aaaaaaand Chris Carter!
The Budget is here! Everything’s fixed.
