This week James and Pete recap the three big news stories of the week in the tabling of the Finkel review (0:59), the fallout of the UK general election (2:19) and the legal troubles for three Coalition frontbenchers at the Victorian Supreme Court (4:08). This week we interview IPA Research Fellow Matthew Lesh about the UK elections, why Jeremy Corbyn is so loved by young people and the state of free speech on campus (6:28-20:58) and IPA Research Fellow Andrew Bushnell about why Lionel Messi better be thankful he isn’t Australian and city joggers (21:35-27:40). At the end we talk about the wealth of anti-democracy op-eds there have been in the last week, Oliver Stone’s love for Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump’s boldest election strategy so far. We also have some breaking news from Simon Breheny about the state of the legal issues for the Coalition frontbenchers (34:37-45:00).
