Well! It’s been one of those weeks, one of those ummm weeks and we’ve all been getting on with the business, the business of good government! Of course we all know, know, that good government is the product of a good government, if you know what I mean. That is that good government’s give you meaningfully good government, you see. And in giving that good government, my team, with me as the captain, have been working hard, that’s hard, to make sure that the good government that your getting is from a very good government team committed to providing the best, the very best in government for the good of all. Ha! Tricked you there, you there, umm, didn’t I. You thought I was going to talk, to talk about a good government giving you good government, but I turned it around to the very best in government for the good of all. So there! So in closing my little speech about just how good this government has been in giving good government I’d like to, aaaarm, recognise the good, no great, contributions of all of the team, except of course Phil Ruddock and some pesky backbenchers who thought that with a few clever tricks they could bring down a good government by saying that there wasn’t any good government and that the leader, that’s me, needed to be changed. Well we all saw what happened to that, didn’t we! So there you have it. Thankyou for coming and we’ll just get on with giving good government to the people of, arrrrm, Australia, yes that’s Australia!
And as the crow said whilst sitting looking at the 20 year drought caused by Anthropogenic Global Warming – “FAAAAARRRRRRK!”
A graphic from somewhere, with a remarkable resemblance, emoji wise, to our very own George Brandis, he of the meta muesli data, and the ominous warning already on the base of said graphic gave rise to;
The diminishing hope of the younger generation in the future gave some pause for thought to our toad friends.
We all watched as George happily got stuck in to denigrating Gillian Triggs for releasing something (in December I believe) that exposed what a disgraceful episode the whole “Stop The Boats” in Australia’s “Fair Go Mate” history is. Happily joined by others of the Lieberal Party in maintaining the denigration and abuse George let us know that he had great respect for Gillian, really – but;
Rat at this juncture was, just for a moment, overjoyed that the Senate decided to censure George for his disgusting behaviour, and then realised that such an admonition might not be all that it was cut out to be.
And Rats cynicism knew no bounds when he realised that the numbers enumerated in the modelling related to universities were, somewhat concocted.
However he was pleased to hear that the new foreign fighter laws had been carefully crafted to make sure that you had to have a good reason for being in places that you shouldn’t be.
It was heartening to see our beloved team leader of good government resorting to that time honoured trick used when you are in trouble – wolf calling.
However we hasten to alert Prime Minister Rabbott to the fact that calling out wolves (or backbenchers) may very well result in them answering you and coming to find out what all that noise was about. Such a result often has fatal consequences if such animals are hungry for blood.
Nevertheless, there were those supporters of Prime Minister Rabbott who were confidently confident that the majority of the good government giving Australians good government were more than happy with a Prime Minister, captain of such a good government.
Which finally brought us to that other wonderful trick that is often used when your fortunes are flagging – the use of flags! There was another, far more popular I must admit, that was a great user of flags, and marching bands, and lots of people marching in jackboots at huge rallies. His name escapes me at the moment but I’m sure it will come back to me, eventually! Perhaps I need some martial music and the tramp, tramp, tramp of regular footfalls to jog those grey cells! Anyhow we have just the product for times such as these.
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!
