Show Description
On this week’s review show we are joined once again by Co-Editor in Chief of The Unshackled Sukith Fernando. We start by wishing our followers a happy Heterosexual Pride Day and explain why it is important. After a week focusing on overseas news we turn back to Australian politics which has exploded.

We start by discussing the fallout from the release of the Pyne tapes by Andrew Bolt, where Christopher Pyne at a function for the left of the Liberal Party gloated about how they were now in charge. He also claimed he had always supported Malcolm Turnbull and that same sex marriage would be brought in very soon by their friends in Canberra. Tony Abbott has responded by accusing Pyne of gross disloyalty and spending the week outlining an alternative conservative agenda for the government.

We highlight that this latest saga demonstrates just how far to the left the Liberal Party has lurched under Turnbull. Although we like what Tony Abbott is saying now, we question his motives and ask why didn’t he implement these conservative positions while Prime Minister? We also ponder the question of whether it is better for the Liberals to lose the next election to teach them a lesson even though a Shorten Prime Ministership would be a disaster for Australia.

We also discuss Cory Bernardi’s latest political coup by recruiting Rachel Carling-Jenkins, a Democratic Labour Party MLC from Victoria to Australian Conservatives. Given that their membership is already over 10,000 in less than a year we point out that the mainstream media appears to be underestimating the impact Australian Conservatives will have on future elections. This is because Bernardi has done what nobody else has been able to do which is unite the various conservative parties. Although there is still One Nation as a viable conservative alternative we do agree that Australian Conservatives appears to be more capable of building a more long term political apparatus.

We also comment on Australia’s newest regressive Richmond AFL player Bachar Houli who is the game’s most prominent Muslim player. Not only has he set up is own football Cup and Academy for Muslim youth but Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull gave him $625,000 of taxpayer funding for his projects. Not just that but this week he used Malcolm Turnbull and Waleed Aly as character references to get a striking charge which knocked a player unconscious reduced to just a two week ban. We point out that Houli has appeared to abuse his connections to escape a just punishment and in the eyes of the community it looks as if there’s one rule for a designated victim group and another for ordinary Australians.
