What a rip rorting old time we’ve had of it, eh? As a Twitter fan I have never seen that little app light up so much with furious indignation and chopper memes! And so often. If rage could be mutated into the fiery flames of hell and damnation the charming Bronwyn (Choppergate) Bishop and her adoring Prime Winky Dill would be screaming in agony as the raging flames crisped the flesh from their carbonising bones – well something like that anyhow! And finally, after weeks of stonewalling, denial, standing firm, not really abject apologies Bronwyn finally fell on her stabilising rotor and quit her cushy little Speaker number. You must admit that the resignation letter was succinct! Unapologetic, but succinct!!
And then to add fuel to the flames our favourite Rabbott excuses the whole ghastly business of an embarrassingly naked display of abuse of privilege by telling us all that it wasn’t really Bronwyn’s fault – it was that bloody naughty little system stuffing up the rorts, er works! So I guess as promised last week that should be enough on the matter, eh?
But no! I think I gave a Parliamentary promise not to mention the issue again, and being an upright citizen of high moral breeding I will now freely admit that “I lied” and humbly ask you bunch of low brow dolts to forgive me of my transgressions, just like you did for Bronnie!! PS: I’m being purely political in this little paragraph and wouldn’t dare think that you are low brow dolts in my normal persona!! ;-))
And what did we see? We saw The Prime Winky Dill’s tweet about resigning Speakers come back to haunt him, several hundred retweeted times, plus a newspaper appearance or three.
We saw Bronwyn Bishop’s resignation from the Speaker’s position in our superbly performing Parliament.
We heard rumours that there were some geological disturbances in certain parts of Australia with earthquakes off the coast of Queensland and some tremors occurring in a certain Sydney electorate.
And upon hearing that Bronwyn Bishop was being referred to as “Bron Perignon”, sadly we can’t claim ownership of that witticism, we thought we might put a bit of a sparkle into the wit with;
PS: We were forced to add “Last of the batch!!” when Bron fell on her sword!!
That Bloody Rat came forth, well fifth really, to indicate how impressed he was with Andrew Wilkie’s astute appreciation of the state of play with regard to donations and brown paper bags.
The Uhuh Rat was unsurprised that Tony Rabbott and his Team Australia wouldn’t budge on reporting requirements, especially those reforms suggested by “they who shalt be blamed for everything” the Labor Party.
Our Rattus Politicus was at great pains to throw his fulsome support behind Rabbott in confirming that it was the system that was to blame!
Especially when the Rabbott reassuringly assured the unbelievably sceptical public that it was all about systemics really and not about Bronwyn at all.
And to wrap up the whole matter our Rat of Eruditeness felt that he had an appropriate quote which encompassed the whole dirty little saga – as yet unfinished!!
And all of that led to thoughts of this, again someone else’s compilation, which seemed to sum the whole stinking business of supersized opportunism by a highly dubious Government.
And finally, for no other reasons except quirkiness and ending on a lighter note, this little graphic deserved a bit of manipulation to express sheepish concerns in a moment of high tension!
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!
