Van Badham and Ben Davison dive into what is happening with the Omicron variant and contrast the UK experience to the let it rip attitude of Morrison and Dom Perrottet. The northern hemisphere is our early warning system so why are these two Liberal leaders choosing to ignore the UK bringing back protections?

Is it just a cowardly political calculation?

Morrison's government is crooked, corrupt, incompetent, ideologically vacuous and failing to deliver. Van and Ben look at some of the best (and worst) elements of Morrison's government from 2021. From buying votes in wealthy seats using working people's money to ignoring ways to make workplaces safer for women and care homes safer for our elders Morrison isn't just failing to deliver more religious discrimination and an independent anti-corruption commission. He's failing full stop.

2021 was enough to make you cry, and in this episode Van and Germanicus both shed a tear, so we look at the hope on the horizon for 2022. There are elections to be won, striking workers to be supported (check out the CSR Gyprock fundraising page, links on our socials), cooperative power companies you can shift too and cool political actions like #AbscondmentDay to participate in that will all make 2022 an even better year.
