Powerful broadcasting on Q+A.
Jack sat down with Harry Tam who coordinates the Mongrel Mob meth rehabilitation program.
My issue with this was that if we have $2.75 for this, we should have money for Mike King.
That aside, I salute the focus on helping gang members off meth because we need hundreds of millions in rehab if we want to dampen down supply.
Harry Tam proved how essential it is for him to be part of the debate. He reminded us of how poverty and alienation generates gangs and powerfully laid down a real challenge to the never ending get tough on crime rhetoric.
Following the true insight and wisdom of Tam with the Police Minster Poto Williams was terribly confusing as the Minister scrambled to justify her get tough on crime rhetoric with funding the program.
If the Minister had spent less time saying she wanted to be clear by actually being clear it wouldn’t have been so painful.
All that interview highlighted was shallow Labour’s talent pool is.
Next into the water returns. The truth is local government are too underfunded to prop up safe water and the State needs to step in. We must protect our water supply and we need better technical capacity and expertise.
We should also ban water bottling for overseas companies.
Debate with mayors on the rural-urban divide. Same boring talking points – blah blah premium prices blah blah sustainability blah blah. No mention that Dairy is a sunset industry once synthetic milk becomes cheaper than real milk powder.
The madness of the UK experiment to create a new hybrid mutation of Covid that can bypass vaccination protection by reopening early for ‘Freedom Day’ is discussed.
Personally I think we should indict Boris Johnson for possible biological war crimes against humanity.
Tokyo Olympics is up next. I’m not sure how this doesn’t end badly in the middle of a pandemic.
