Episode 11 of my – Podcast – Letter from The Cape – is now available.
In this episode we reflect on the recent Royal Commission report in Australia into the Robodebt scandal where conservative government ministers and senior public servants designed and implemented a scheme that was knowingly illegal, and, which imposed untold harm on the most disadvantaged citizens in our society. Some committed suicide as a result of being hounded by government and their hire debt collectors to repay debts that were not even valid and had been assessed by an out of control and flawed computer algorithm. This episode really is the culmination of decades of mistreatment of the unemployed by government.
