In the Tasman nations, it’s been a week of plunder and pillage by both governments and organized crime. The Australian Government steals from the future for its federal budget while in New Zealand its local gangs and the police have both fallen foul of the law. Tim and Dieuwe discuss on this week’s Trad Tasman Talk.
The Morrison Liberal Government is projecting budget deficits over the next five years with net debt to reach $1 trillion, with interest rates so low the debt is liking to be monetized by the Reserve Bank. New Zealand politicians and a Human rights commissioner have been hanging out with the NZ Maori criminal gang the Mongrel Mob. New Zealand police have been embarrassed by series of misconduct revelations. Australian patriot activist Neil Erikson was sentenced to one month in prison for interrupting Islamic prayers in April 2019, Thomas Sewell one of the leaders of the National Socialist Network was raided again today over an alleged armed robbery at their latest camping trip. Another Australian political sex scandal has developed with NSW Liberal Minister Gareth Ward under investigation for a 2013 allegation of sexual violence against a minor.
