You might have noticed of late that the brevity and sharp wittedness of our Government has become less, shall we say, three word sloganistic and more loquacious! Indeed loquacity has become it’s raison d’etre! No longer are we subject to the pithy extremism of the propagandist Three Word Slogan. Explanation and fulsome descriptiveness with supplementary simpler explanation have become the flag-bearer of a government which basically has the same old policies now dressed in verbiage as thick as clotted cream! Thankfully the suppurative effluence emanating from the policies has not yet turned said cream into a rancid, putrifying excrescence as odourous as a fly-blown cow pat on a warm and humid day. Or, more simply, the abundant moo poo on the crappy policies has yet to produce a rancid stench.
In that regard we hope that you will tolerate the rather large number of words gracing this group of Graphical Manipulations. We would wish for simpler times, but such is not to be. So bring on the Toads!
Our amphibious friends were impressed with Peter Dutton’s resoluteness in the face of abject desperation.
And felt that Malcolm of the Turnbull was developing an unfortunate tendency to “talk down” to his listeners. OK for kids Mal, but I suspect the business community might be less accepting of the condescension.
Our toads were surprised that Shinzo Abe would let the TPP cat out of the bag so easily. They were also surprised that the U.S. would give up their “sole ruler of the world” position so easily.
They were hopeful that given their overall lowly status in the Australian societal rankings there’d be someone around willing to help them out should the GST be raised by 50%.
And then The Rats. There was some concern that while the environmental song had taken on a distinctly angelic refrain, the underlying beat remained steadfastly the same.
The Bloody Rat felt that George Brandis was taking the term hypocrisy to a new level of refinement and definition.
And that poor Eric Abetz appeared to be suffering Post Traumatic Decabinetisation Trauma and was rapidly becoming delusional.
Rat was not surprised however, when he learnt that the lovable Kevin Rudd had finally achieved recognition in his area of expertise.
And Rattus Politicus was confident that the assurances of Health Minister Susan Ley would assure us that all was well and that there was “nothing to see here, or there, or anywhere. Really!!”
And finally, our Erudite little rodent left us with a quote to titillate our imagination with a game of “guess who”!
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!
