Edition 288 – Kind Words & Good Deeds

We had a row in our household last week over a social media post. My wife’s cousin ranted ad-nauseum about the current lockdown situation in New South Wales. She was vitriolic in her comments and her name calling of public officials was simply appalling. Personally, I don’t know how she’s still on that particular social media platform, so personal and vile are her comments.

Of the four or so questions that were asked by the audience, the host, Ray Martin chose me for one of them. You’re on national television and you have the opportunity to put a question to a sitting Prime Minister. That was a lot of fun.
