Cory Talks S03 E09 - Mon 15 Mar 2021
On this edition of Cory Talks…
I’m truly sorry if the stories of rape allegations in the Australian political sphere at the moment is disturbing, but we are not going to be able to fix the problem if we sweep it under the carpet. Canberra rape claimant Brittany Higgins has a win in court of defamatory comments by Defence Minister Senator Linda Reynolds. The money will go to help survivors of rape and abuse in the Canberra area.
Today, Monday 15 March 2021 is the day of #March4Justice. Time for you, me and government to listen!
The COVID-19 vaccine rollout in Australia is a national embarrassment. Surely not all adult Australian’s who wish to be vaccinated, will be by October as the Morrison government claims.
European Countries stop the use of the AstraZeneca COVID vaccine temporarily while they investigate if there is a link to the vaccine and blood clots. Australia plans to keep using this vaccine. The AstraZeneca jab is the one most Australian’s will receive.
Western Australian’s went to polls on Saturday. Was there really a doubt of who would win. The people have spoken in the west. Let’s hope Canberra is listening with increasing talk of an early federal election before 2022.
Australia’s Mr Potato Head, Peter Dutton in a Trans Tasman stoush. Aren’t we lucky Home Affairs Minister Dutton isn’t Prime Minister… well not yet anyway.
Former Liberal Party Australia government Foreign Minister Julie Bishop confirms there’s a boys club in Canberra.
That Oprah interview with Harry and Meagan. Even the Queen has weighed in on the matter.
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews had a nasty fall last week. He cracked some ribs and did some damage to his vertebrae.
A CEO of a law firm loses her job after been kept in the dark about the firm taking on the case of alleged rapist, Commonwealth Attorney General, Christian Porter.
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison in his own words… no wonder Australian women are so angry. I’m angry too!
Federal Government coughs up funds to finance cheap flights at targeted locations around Australia. With the vaccination of Australian’s way behind, is this really the best time to be flying interstate for a holiday? And if the Morrison wants things back to normal, and people back at work – how can they do their job and take a break at the same time? Sounds like desperation from the government.
