I gave up on that show ages ago. It's full of inner city lefty hipsters who have no clue about real politics. They prefer to talk about climate change, gay marriage and asylum seekers. I imagine Tony Jones will be the next ABC presenter to run for the ALP. Just watch the twitter feed for a taste of vitriol.
Whether you find those topics distasteful or not, they're what's in the news day after day. It's carbon tax, jobs, mining magnates, FIFO, gay marriage, asylum seekers and Craig Thompson. Do any other topics actually exist at the moment? It seems not...
I personally though Georgie Somerset was very worth listening to last night.
I usually like listening to the non-politicians more, because when they ask the politicians any given question, the one on the right will say The Sky is Blue and the one on the left will say, that's wrong, The Sky is Red! Just pointless partisan spin for the most part. Occasionally I'm surprised by a straight-talking politician. Malcolm Turnbull usually impresses me, as does Penny Wong sometimes.
I expect Gillard will be 100% spin reciting the scripted lines ad nauseum.
