#17 - A Claytons podcast

A brief (well, for us) fill-in episode while Jacob is away.

THE FOCUS GROUP: The ACT election highlights some confusion amongst commentators and politicians about how a parliament works.

And another Dave wonders how parties should deal with voters’ expectations in hung parliaments - should they tell them first who they’ll side with? http://davec.org/2012/10/multi-party-politics/

STOP THE PRESS: Tony Abbott continues his campaign for a permanent seat on the mocked-by-the-world’s-press-for-misogyny council.

And why fact-check your “hey the poor are just too dumb to buy food on the pittance we give them” defence of a payment no-one could reasonably live on? Penbo tells the poor how to buy food cheaply - simply demand to get it for the prices Penbo quotes and supermarkets will hand it over!
