The producers of the show Waleed Aly from the project stopped broadcasting after the question of whether bosses should get the power to make the Covid vaccine mandatory for their employees.
Aly and presenter Rachel Corbett entered into a heated debate on ‘no jab no play’ politics on Tuesday night, following a segment on the popularity of a potential term.
The results of a government poll presented during the episode showed that 64 percent of Australians were ready for vaccination, but the rest were not so sure – which could mean that a sting could be mandatory to ensure great enjoyment.
“This is such a good idea for travel,” Corbett of politics said.

‘I don’t mind if it becomes something for everyday life. If you need to have a small mark in your passport to travel to work.
But Aly disagreed, arguing that it would give employers unnecessary power.
‘Hang on. I don’t want employers to have so much power over your decision, ‘he said.
Corbett retaliated with a blow, saying she thought the measure was ‘reasonable’ and would help Australians get back to work.
Aly argued that this was not a good enough reason to give bosses authority over workers ’health decisions.
“There is a difference between stating that it is reasonable and encouraging people to get vaccinated and measures that could have all sorts of consequences down the track,” he said.
Corbett replied, “What about the consequences of a re-emergence or the closure of a business and all that sort of thing?”
“For me, the consequences of an employer being able to dictate your health decisions are profound,” Aly objected. ‘Imagine if you made such rules about things you don’t agree with, it would be scary.’

Corbett said the funds justify the goals.
‘In this situation your business could go out of business, and that was a big problem. If it could keep your business open, is that reasonable? ‘ she said.
As Aly went through half of her response, the producers gave the signal to stop the discussion.
‘I think that’s fair. I was told I had to keep quiet now, ‘he said.
Although the majority of the population announced they would be vaccinated, the survey found that 27 percent were unsure, while nine percent opposed it.
The launch of the Australian coronavirus vaccine began on Tuesday after multiple doses of Pfizer eggs arrived from overseas.
Health and hotel quarantine workers across the country have begun receiving the vaccine, along with residents and staff of nursing and disability facilities.
Health Minister Greg Hunt confirmed on Tuesday another 166,000 doses of Pfizer landed in Sydney, and another 120,000 will arrive next week.
He told parliament that the government plans to ensure that 80,000 doses are available next week – 50,000 for states and 30,000 for elderly care.
The next phase provides vaccinations for those over 70, people who are immunocompromised, indigenous people over 55 and critical workers at the front.
Most Australians will receive the AstraZeneca vaccine, with doses produced in Victoria or arrived from abroad.
Mr Morrison says federal and state health officials are overseeing whether to make injections mandatory for some workers.
The exit comes after thousands of protesters attended anti-vaccination rallies in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
Simultaneous protests were also held in Cairns, Coffs Harbor and Albany.
