A beer and a chat

Love this little ditty from Tim Minchin, who as usual doesn't mince his major chords getting straight to the point and encouraging Cardinal George Pell (currently held up in the Vatican) to return home to face a Royal Commission hearing on child abuse currently going on in Australia. There are many allegations against Pell, primarily that he covered up abuse and protected paedophile priests in the 70s and 80s and possibly even bribed people to keep quiet around his diocese at the time in Melbourne, Pell went on to become the highest ranking Catholic in Australia and is now in the Vatican and declining to come home to face questioning in person due to "health" reasons. As Minchin says in his song, "I'm sure they'll make you feel welcome in the pub in Ballarat, they just want a beer and a chat"..
