It was redolent with promise, svelte in shape, style and erudition. This could be it! Anticipation hung upon the air like the aroma of a spice shop! The mind was erotically enthused with the promise of the illicit pleasures to come!
The palace of delight was stripped of its coverings, all barriers to entry removed. The odours of heavenliness wafted into the air . . . . . . . . . . . . ! ARRRRRRRRGH! The Hunter Valley 2002 Shiraz was CORKED!! Shock! Horror! Disappointment! Disillusionment flooded the mind with anguish! And we thought; “Just like bloody Malcolm Turnbull! So much fancied potential, dashed by the crude brutality of reality!!
Thankfully we took solace in a 2000 West Australian Platypus Lane Shiraz which wasn’t!! Fortunately it didn’t remind us of anyone!
And the state of play in Australian politics? Fraught with GM opportunities as it ever is with the political twinkies governing, in Three Word Slogan parlance, “Poor Bugger Australia”! Jacqui Lambie had a word or two for Cory Bernardi.
Christopher Pyne was out there extolling the virtues of not voting for Nick Xenophon’s bunch of loutish weasels thereby rescuing Australia from a fate worse than death, a representative democracy.
Some evil little leaker let us know that the Mafia and senior Lieberal politicians appeared to be hand in glove, or is that “sipping from the well” of donazioni for mutual miglioramento? PS: I’ve got so used to typing “Liberal” as “Lieberal” that it now happens automatically – perhaps it’s a sign!
And at that point out came That Bloody Rat to let us know, in no uncertain terms, his view of the current political situation, a la Rodentia. Pauline (Xenophobe) Hanson got a mention.
Malcolm Fraudbull rushed to the defence of his Foreign Minister Julie (Asbestos) Bishop and her lack of understanding of things superannuative. If the truth be known her understanding of things diplomatic is probably of equivalence!
And Rat was delighted with Wacko Warringah Wabbott’s, Peta (Spoonfeeda) Credlin’s excitement that PM Fraudbull had, finally, become au fait with the Wabbott’s Three Word Slogan philosophy. A sly put down there, methinks!
This was quickly followed by Rat’s great excitement at Spoonfeeda’s put down of Barnaby (Wombat Trail) Joyce’s suggestion that Wacko was still keen on being Prime Ministerial.
Naturally, such a spirited defence led quickly to thoughts of clandestine manoeuvres and sneaky plots being forcefully denied and that led to;
Such conspiracy theories being well reinforced by the behaviour of some members of parliament who seem to think Wacko is the Lord reincarnate! Craig Kelly comes to mind! Nuff said there I think!
The Australian voter was suitably warned earlier about PROMISSORY NOTES and their Lieberal use by politicians seeking to garner a vote or two from the more gullible amongst us. It’s been noted that the last week or so has given rise to a surfeit of such PROMISSORY NOTES with great potential for there to be many more. We can only suggest that voters pay heed to this timely warning.
The discovery that Barnaby (Wombat Trail) Joyce liked the Bard gave rise to thoughts about which pieces of the Bard’s many works Barns might like. And that led to:
And finally, who could resist Christopher (Whiney) Pyne and Malcolm (Fraudband) Fraudbull engaging in a bit of illumination in the realms of virtual reality!
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!
AFTER-AFTERTHOUGHT: This Lieberal/Neutered Puppy Coalition Government is trashing the good standing of Australia. It cares little about its people in its fanatical pursuit of ultra-conservative ideology. It is using the weapons of minority xenophobia, the secret fears and uncertainty of the general public and blatant propaganda, aided by a complaisant media, to turn this country into something is has never been – bigoted, racist, xenophobic, selfish, self-indulgent, self-obsessed, uncaring and a disgrace to all those things that have made Australia a great country! Tolerance, mateship, community, fairness and equity, honesty and a love of freedom in both speech and expression!
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!
