Mere Mortals Podcast ,

Funny As

Really enjoyed the sense of humour between Gregg & Jake. The episode with Pete Smissen (Aussie English) is bang on, really enjoyed it!

I’m not from the ACT but . . .

Could you please put some more research into the topics you cover. I’m not from the ACT, my school never had a trip to Canberra but I understand how the ACT parliament is elected and how they form their government. You clearly did not do even the most basic of research, but just looked at the ABC News banner headline. The 5 ‘other’ seats are not going to ‘preference’ to Labor. Those seats are going to Greens candidates, which means the government will be formed by a Labor and Green coalition. And not just a 1 or 2 seats supporting a 40+ Labor gov, it’s about 2:1, Labor:Green. So Greens have, and will, continue to play a major role in ACT government policy.

Good political chat for non political people

Nice flow between the hosts.
