See below for show notes:

This week former Prime Minister and IPA Distinguished Fellow Tony Abbott speaks out about getting dobbed on for not wearing a mask. Tony also says that there is absolutely no health justification for wearing a mask outdoors, and gives his opinion on if civil disobedience is the right thing to do when laws are so bad, unjust, and arbitrary.

Tony also discusses what the departure of Joel Fitzgibbon from the working-class seat of Hunter means for the future of representation of mainstream Australians, and why Kristina Keneally being parachuted from the affluent northern Sydney beaches to the western suburbs of Sydney makes a “mockery” of Labor party democracy.
