The rot is spreading: Straya’s commitment to her targets loses steam explores the questionable relationship between targets and getting things done. A thinly disguised analogy to our current climate emissions goals, Straya (Australia) is frustrated with her dads’ – Francois (France) and Germaine (Germany) – pathetic attempts to make her more responsible. What about her Sydney water shares? What about her lifestyle? But all Francois and Germaine are concerned about is the effect on the climate! Losers!!!
Francois (Patrick Trumper) and Germaine (Phil Dooley) struggle to communicate with their daughter, Straya (Michele Conyngham). Isn’t that always the way!!?
Filmed before (get that, before!) lockdown (just so you won’t worry we were a bit too close), this new sketch joins our most recently published sketch/interview – Let’s Save the Murray, Darling – Aquaporins. Dr Caitlin Byrt fronts up to Clive Palmier and water minister Angus to get support for her research on aquaporins. Guess what! Clive doesn’t listen, but does give her up-to-date information on his Cayman Island account.
But in the meantime, please enjoy The rot is spreading: Straya’s commitment to her targets loses steam.
