Episode 69: Morrison surrenders to the virus, what Omicron means for you and the good news about beavers!
Manage episode 316673887 series 2778983
Van Badham and Ben Davison return in 2022 to breakdown the Morrison government's latest announcements about COVID, including the attacks on workplace health and safety, and examine how Morrison has gone from ham fisted and half hearted neo-Keynesian to full blown free market Friedmanite.
With COVID being let rip by boy Prince of NSW, Dom Perrottet, Morrison has taken the opportunity to make an ideological shift that will see 20 million Australian's left to "thunderdome" for RATs, bread and fuel while being told to go back to work when exposed to COVID. Because "critical workers" exposing our most vulnerable to COVID is apparently no longer a problem....
They look at the overseas experiences and what we can do to protect ourselves and our communities. Here's a hint: Join your union, get vaccinated, don't expose others when you're ill.
Plus there is good news about problematic beavers in Utah.
Welcome back to the Week on Wednesday!
