For a moment there we were much concerned that the time of Satirical Surfeit was about to become Satirical Starvation as our Prime Team Australia Leader Rabbott stopped the tomfoolery and became all serious and, well, Prime Ministerial! Much to our delight, and no doubt many others (including Labor), IT WAS NOT TO BE and the surfeit of satirical opportunities continued on pretty much unabated. It was with even greater relief that several other players in our Comedic Liberal Government (another TWS) also decided not to let the Rabbott hold centre stage – all of the time! We can only applaud Captain Rabbott as he inspires his team to even more forays into the fray and allows them the occasional own goal! One can only look on adoringly askance at a leader like that!
All of us must be so pleased that the ex-minister for nastiness, our own Scotty Morrison, has, by virtue of a new ministerial position magically turned over a new leaf and become the minister for nice. Especially as he’s actually indicated that he’s going to be nice. And you can’t go past a promissory note from Scott, can you, eh?
“Budget Boy” Joe Hockey is still determined, despite the alternative view of Prime Minister Rabbott that his 2014 budget is the best thing for the country since the introduction of rabbotts, sorry rabbits, and is intent in making sure that we all lift for the country, especially those who are poor, elderly or out of work. If you are all three, then it’s suggested you go have a little chat with Scott, who’ll put you on the strait and narrow. By the way, those rumours that Joe is facetiously referred to as “Fudgeit Boy” are just that, facetious! And here’s his latest book to demonstrate au contraire!
Less than impressive was Prime Minister Rabbott’s excursion into verbal analogy which was initiated as a defence of his dearth of defence jobs which, unfortunately, descended into an indefensible depiction of Labor’s dearth of defence jobs as a ‘holocaust’! Ooooh not a good word choice Tony!
Still! Prime Minister Rabbott rose again from the self inflicted faux pas to make another “Captain’s Pick”, deftly removing Philip Ruddock from his Chief Whipper position and demonstrating that, once again, co-ordinating timing, actions, and revenge are somewhat beyond Tony’s grasp. Perhaps this is a continuing demonstration that the promise of “Good Government” may be, sadly, just that!
The mention of Philip Ruddock, he who ran with the Howard rat pack, drew out The Rat who felt that poor Phil, unlike his princely name alike, was dealt with rather cursorily by Tony.
And he was particularly impressed with the Rabbott’s lead with the chin comments about giving one the ‘benefit of the doubt”, especially when there were those absent minded “mug’s about” who voted for Labor last time!
And of course the local monkey bunch were in no doubt about where they stood on the issue of giving people “the benefit of the doubt” – no doubt at all!
The local toads, being creatures with their feet firmly planted on the ground (well most of the time) showed a strong interest in the maintenance of stable government.
And all of this along with a week where nothing really changed despite the promises from our beloved leader that it would felt like, well . . . . . . .
And that resulted in another trip to the oracle for some words of wisdom. On the question; “If you’re in the poop, how do you regroup?”, Gourd answered thus;
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!
