Well all you lefty latte-sipping leaners out there, it’s been a pretty interesting week. Rumours abound that our nay-saying ‘God it’s the end of the World’ NO Coalition government is moving to get off its regular diet of oppressing the migratory, as well as short-changing, abusing and demonising anyone on less than $77,000 per annum and is now moving (dare we say boldly) forward in the promised, but not yet delivered, job creation area. Yes indeed!
It has been discovered that the new policy requiring job seekers to make 40 legitimate (non-spamming) applications per month to maintain their unemployment benefits (sorry! DOLE) has created an, in Public Service vernacular, Industry Growth Opportunity. And, through a little know source this GM has been given access to the very first proof of the impending positional advertisement. Now there’s a scoop;
After considering that exciting offer and deciding that the ‘right bastard’ quality might be a bit lacking in GM land we considered opportunities in demonising the less fortunate, and this came to mind;
And that led to promises made, and promises of an ephemeral nature and promises that didn’t really get past the verbalisation stage which led, predictably to the remainders section in the local bookstore and this;
When The Rat saw this weighty tome he just couldn’t resist a comment on verbalisation, especially that of the Prime Ministerial kind;
And he let it be known that he was tickled pink when our trustworthy Prime Minister shafted the Tassie Premier with;
Then along came Kevin Andrew our soulful and lovelorn Social Services Minister whose attempts to get a tad more loving and a-caring into Australia’s happy families seem to have come a tad, shall we say, derailed;
And just when the mirth was subsiding, who should come along displaying is ineptness with delivering announcements in a timely manner whilst avoiding contradiction, but our very own Treasurer Joe (Eleventy) Hockey with;
After successfully returning The Rat to his cage further consideration was given to Joe’s penchant for covering the big lie with a large amount of bluff and bluster;
We also saw a little bit of monkey business by the Prime Winky Dill and the Environmental Minister with their announcement of comradely patriotism when announcing their environmental traineeships for the dole. I seem to remember someone saying; “Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel”. Oh well;
And finally, thoughts of that long lost motherland (how depressing), far across the sea, who really doesn’t give a bugger, especially about me! Which led to;
And there you have it . . . . . . . .!
AFTERTHOUGHT: If you don’t punish politicians and their parties for lying to you, you are predetermining your treatment as a fool!
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!
