Cory Talks S03 E06 - Mon 22 Feb 2021
On this edition of Cory Talks…
Rape allegations by two former Liberal Party staffers at Australian Parliament House levelled against one former male staffer. What did the Prime Minister Scott Morrison know and when did he know it? His words do not feel believable and if you believe the screenshot of a text message, the Prime Ministers Office knew about one of the allegations for a greater length of time than it has admitted.
The COVID-19 vaccine programme is finally rolling out in Australia. The Federal Government says all Aussies who wish to be vaccinated, should be by October.
The snap five day lockdown in Victoria was just that – thankfully! This was due to concerns about the more virulent strain of the COVID-19 virus, the UK strain. Now the state is looking to further easing of coronavirus restrictions this week.
Western Australian election in less than three weeks time and if you believe Newspoll, the Labor Party under Premier Mark McGowan looks to a massive win.
My take on this whole Facebook banning news in Australia thing. I don’t think either of the two (or is that three) players have the upper hand. I think in the end it’s Australian’s who will pay some sort of price for this political point scoring exercise.
New silly fad on TikTok.
Parler back from the wilderness. For them it’s been a long month. But if you’re new to the unfiltered platform, you might find it hard to join.
US President Joe Biden plans to get tough on guns. Good luck Joe when America has such an obsession with guns! (Hey, don’t shoot the messenger).
Harry and Meagan are officially out of The Firm.
I am in no way interested in Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West, so don’t bother expecting me to mention these media whores on the podcast.
More meat for cats.
Coke in paper bottles.
