Graphical Manipulations #74: Sharks, Economics, Entitlements, Rats, Boats And Choices!


Thoughts about sharks, shark baiting, workers being savaged by the NO Coalition sharks (metaphorically speaking of course) whilst our beloved leader took a bit of recreational time to go a-surfing gave rise to a bit of wishful thinking which gave rise to this (metaphorically thinking of course);

Wishful Thinking Abbott

But such thoughts quickly gave way to wondering what we would do without such intellectually brilliant little . . . ah . . .  dynamo’s whose erudite utterings of puerile platitudes gave such opportunities to pillory and ridicule, and, even do a bit of pillocking with;

And then we have that masterful stroke of improving the opportunities for the Americanisation of the Australian labour force by removing our manufacturing base and ensuring that all our vehicles will be imported, employment spasmodically part-time and wages low;

Done deal Abbott

Unfortunately our Treasurer still seems a tad unsure just how the removal of entitlements applies in this modern age, and for that matter, just who it applies to;

And then it’s always those things called facts (usually ignored and overlooked by any politician worth their salt) that get in the way, just when you’re really warming to your subject and telling it like it isn’t;

Facts get in the way

I’m just wondering whose entitlements, apart from Joe Publics, are actually over in this collection of factoids!  Well the bottom one’s a start I guess.

There’s always a time, and a place and The Rat decided that his time had come with a quick look at ‘new boys’;

Vavaris Rat

Old boys with a penchant for the grand gesture regardless of their own behaviour;

Hypocrite Pyne Rat

And of course references to boats.  It seems that the NO Coalition is all about boats these days.  STOP THE BOATS!  TURN THE BOATS!  BUY THE BOATS!  One major concern is that if the NO Coalition continues on its chaotic course they may have to get the populace to MAN THE LIFEBOATS!  Anyhow, Joe made sure he was into the boat thingy with;

Rising Tide Rat

And when we could get our Prime Minister Abbott away from recreational surfing, bike riding and other relaxing pursuits he didn’t fail to disappoint;

Open for business Abbott

Such contemplations ultimately led to thoughts about choices.  About how it seems we made a disastrously wrong one back in September and the choices that left us with and, well, choices in general really;

Los trios tragic

 

 

Afterthought:  This NO Coalition Government is trashing the good standing of Australia.  It cares little about its people in its fanatical pursuit of ultra-conservative ideology.  It is using the weapons of minority xenophobia, the secret fears and uncertainty of the general public and blatant propaganda, aided by a complaisant media, to turn this country into something is has never been – bigoted, racist, xenophobic, selfish, self-indulgent, self-obsessed, uncaring and a disgrace to all those things that have made Australia a great country! Tolerance, mateship, community, fairness, honesty and a love of freedom in both speech and expression!

 

Postscript:  All characters appearing in this work are entirely, and amazingly, fictitious.  Any resemblance to real persons, living, dead or in a zombie like state, is purely coincidental with an exceptionally high probability of being the construct of a deluded mind trying to grasp the true meaning of the political unreality of Australian politics, al la NO Coalition!  We can only gaze upon such greatness with wonderment!

  1. The productivity commission’s figures are an excellent example of never letting the truth get in the way of a good lie as far as the NOalition’s concerned D.
    Buddy, can you spare an $882 million tax refund for a struggling magnate? :) :)
