Ep 19: Why Size Doesn’t Matter For So-Called Minor Parties

Written by and
29 May 2019

What can the results of the EU elections tell us about the future of Britain and the rest of Europe? (1:31-20:14) The Australian federal election was called the triumph of the minor parties – but was it? (20:14-36:03) And should professional protestors be stripped of Newstart, and is this even an issue? (36:03-47:30). Scott Hargreaves and Dr Chris Berg are joined by Andrew Bushnell and Richard Allsop to discuss these questions and share what they’ve been reading and watching this week, including Chernobyl, The System of the Constitution, Catch 22 and Troy Bramston’s new biography of Menzies.
