On this episode of OM’s Chatter we start off in the US where we discuss attempts to discuss what a repeal of Obamacare might actually look like (Repeal the whole thing? Half of it? The Republican’s can’t seem to decide) and briefly discuss the latest WH sycophant, Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci, and what this ‘loyalty’ based merit system is doing to the administrations image.
Next up, we pop over to Britain to discuss what impact the banning of diesel and petrol cars and vans will have on lower-income people and those living in the developing countries that supply the ingredients to make electric and hybrid car batteries.
Second last, Karan chimes in with a bit about an escalation of tensions at the India-China border, and lastly, Vennesa presents her ‘Africa Bit’ on the upcoming Rwandan election and why some voices in the country are calling for a change from President Paul Kagame.
Surprise! Karan’s got an Africa Bit too! His choice this week: the Barrick Gold subsidiary that’s being charged $190bn by Tanzania for taxes unpaid.
Thanks for listening! See you next week!
