ChatterSquare S01E06: John Clarke, the federal budget, United Airlines

1 Comment

 

On this episode, we take a moment to remember satirist John Clarke. Then we do an initial read of the story that the Australian federal budget might tell. We also break down that United Airlines incident. There might be detours, so stick close.

Not only Chatter Square, but laughter square, thanks. John Clarke's humour was typically Australian - a sparkling dry, I call it. He was a master, and Bryan Dawe his perfect foil. Vale John. Malcolm Turnbull may have wanted to be PM, but I'm not sure he wanted to be a politician. In future times, he would probably make a very good Ambassador on behalf of the Australian government. The United Airlines incident reinforces how I feel about planes: they can be scary places with not much room for negotiation. I think we are booked on a couple of United Airlines flights when we visit USA in June. Gulp,
