Paid a little visit to the Capital of our nation over the weekend and took a youngling to see the sites and show them that place on the hill, Parliament House. An imposing place, beautifully crafted by artisans into a real showplace and symbol of our democracy. It’s unfortunate that one finds it rather hard to lay the same appellations on those who occupy the red and green seats in it when it comes to good democratic governance of the nation. Still! We live in hope, eh?
Which took me to this little snippet of information (amongst many others) about poverty in our nation and to the subsequent Graphical Manipulation.
It was also noted that our medical profession appeared to have a rather jaundiced view of their ex-Minister Peter Dutton. Let’s hope they are a little more favourable to their next . . . . . .
Jaundiced views and females in the parliament led, by way of thoughts of possibly new parties formed by recently separated party members to our very own Jacqui Lambie.
And on that note, who should appear but the Bloody Rat with a couple of idiosyncratic takes on the political week. He got a little confused with cowboy doctors.
Felt that while there might be a few people more popular as preferred Prime Minister than Tony Abbott, it would be wise for Tony to be more concerned about those behind him – with the knives.
And as if that wasn’t depressing enough, it seem that even the Queensland mates would prefer that he stay on holiday, and as far away as possible from the Sunshine State. Siberia WAS mentioned!
And then, just to top off a really bad week, Tony decided to try his hand at a foreign language in an attempt to illegitimise that which was already illegitimate in most people’s eyes. سخيف
The Toads thought that the ABC was pushing the boundaries a bit with its ‘fight for your jobs’ method of re-employment of those recently redunded to reapply for redesigned positions which were relatively similar to the redacted ones but fewer of – if you see what I mean.
The monkeys thought that the floopity, floppity, flappity, flip flop, backflip on the recent medical rebate thingy was just a bit more than a simple policy redirection.
And making a total ass of himself over ‘on budget matters’ hasn’t put a damper on our Joe (Eleventy) Hockey, No Sir! He’s back out there totally assing himself to the max making bold claims about longevity in defence of budget cuts.
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!
