WEEKEND WARRIOR w/ ANTHONY DOCKRILL
Like Tess, you may have been binge-watching Project Runway all weekend, but Anthony Dockrill was paying attention and he’s here to catch you up on what happened this weekend.
After killing a prime minister, it was time for the government to heal, and that went fine until Newspoll came out over the weekend, with the government listed at 11%. Scott Morrison also announced his new ministry, with only a few changes from before.
The department of Energy and Environment has been split, and the two ministers in charge are notably from backgrounds in the Mining Industry. It also seems that the Liberal Party remains to be internally split over energy and climate change, with potential that Australia’s commitment to the Paris Agreement may change.
In the United States, Senator John McCain passed away after a battle from cancer, and Anthony shared some audio from the 2008 Presidential Campaign, reflecting on the quality of McCain as a person, and how the political landscape has changed.
In sport, the Swans lost, but their path to the finals remains open with an upcoming game against Greater Western Sydney.
