So. Let me get this straight. At this point in time Team Australia, led by our Prime Monster Rabbott, doesn’t have a BUDGET EMERGENCY, but will be collecting everyone’s metadata, and blocking internet sites that they consider not suitable for Joe Public (I guess there’ll be a commissioner for that), is going to denationalise those who hold multiple citizenship on the say-so of one individual and is probably hoping that they can get away with doing the same to ordinary citizens given half a chance! Additionally this government of the people, but not exactly for the people, will be providing us with a National Broadband system with the speed of an arthritic sloth, developing Northern Australia as the FOODBOWL OF ASIA whilst building lots of infrastructure, and as an incidental will be making sure that wealthy householders cheating by sending their children to public schools will pay more fees than Joe Average. And, finally, just to make sure that Corporations eventually control the country and have better access to taxpayer largesse will be permitting Investor-State Dispute Settlement clauses into our Free Trade Agreements allowing foreign corporations to sue the government should they make laws which damage their commercial interests. If that doesn’t scare the pants off you then you’re either pantless, or most of the carryings on of this government have gone in one ear and out the other without disturbing any brain cells. One can only look at the Australian voter with wonderment – and an overwhelming urge to consult the psychiatry handbook on the identifying features of mass ignorance!
Ahhhh! Ignorance! Consideration of that word leads to a bit of synaethesia and a greenish tinge.
The toads were impressed that Tony Abbott was taking the weight off his Cabinet by ensuring that they weren’t overwhelmed by lots of legalistic gobbledegook.
Our Ministrator for Education Christopher (Fixit) Pyne seemed to be prominent in the news and therefore worthy of a mention.
And he was also quick to ensure that those wealthy parents, and potential Liberal voters, wouldn’t have their noses put out of joint by the Government taking additional money from them. Hey! It’s only a suggestion, yeah?
That Erudite Rat felt that Allan Bennett put the whole business pretty much in perspective.
Not to be outdone, that Bloody Rat popped up to put his particular perspective on the antics of the political elites. He was pleased that Tony was warm and comfortable about Indonesia.
Pleased that Malcolm Turnbull was comfortable with the Pope’s encyclical being given great weight.
Rat was rightfully concerned that Australian’s optimism was down in the dumps and such a dim outlook might be considerably improved by replacing the dimmer switch which appears to be failing to function to specifications.
And our Political Rat (anonymously of course as is won’t by those politicians who speak “off the record” to the media) felt that in terms of un-cuddlyness, George Brandis was not wanting!
And all of the going’s on over the week has only served to put extreme stress on our measuring equipment. It’s hoped that things will quieten down a tad over the remainder of the winter of our discontent!
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! We can only gaze upon such greatness with wonderment!
