More specifically, we discuss Labor failing to challenge the Liberal partys trickle-down economics, positive changes from the Greens regarding an increased focus on addressing cost of living issues and Indigenous representation, how the Teal Independents stack up on climate change and other issues, differences between the socialist parties, the Animal Justice Party and human social justice issues, plus compulsory voting and spanking.Since we recorded this episode Nick has done a Facebook post regarding how hell be voting: https://www.facebook.com/progpodcast/posts/5835381393144149 Lottie has looked into some of the minor and micro-parties and will be voting as follows: Lower House Lottie is still working out her top 4 but it will be between: Leah Horsfall - Animal Justice Party, Emma Black Vic Socialists, Sue Bolton Socialist Alliance and Sarah Jefford Greens. 5.
