Transcript

No transcript...

Matt and John analysed the planned expansion of the Australian Navy to record preparations since WWII, and some of the difficulties the armed forces are currently encountering. Also discussed were the recent boat arrivals and its relation to mass legal migration. At the end of the episode we opened up call ins and chatted with some of the regular National Observer contributors Percy Spender and Flynn Holman, along with Zealandia First host Alexander. Overall a great episode!
