Bill Shorten blames corporate leviathans and a financial behemoth for losing the election – which would you rather have on your side? The Brexit Party leads the polling for the next UK general election, an Australian whistleblower faces 160 years in Prison and Twitter suspends accounts ahead of the Tiananmen Square anniversary. James talks to Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, about his career, the benefits of Trump’s tax cuts and the dangers of the trade war, the history of Wednesday Meetings and the Taxpayer Protection Pledge and why he goes to Burning Man every year (13:09-39:49). James also sits down with Daily Telegraph columnist Miranda Devine to discuss her profile with Sharri Markson on the last days of the Morrison campaign, why ScoMo was convinced from the outset he would win, why she thinks Labor lost and what she makes of the Israel Folau saga (39:52-57:55). At the end of the show we discuss the AFL fan banned for three games for yelling at an umpire, Budweiser going woke in very cringeworthy fashion, Sadiq Khan needing to chill out and the Indian politician who thought half his family didn’t vote for him.
