Do I hear the rumble of the Tumbrils?

G'day Petals,
more pics from the Otways and  summation of Oz's slow descent into fascism and penury.

In a surprise move, the Australian Federal Police announced that due to their exhaustion after raiding multiple Labor pollies analysing the failed NBN, Union offices, refugee advocates, civil liberty activists and sundry socialist-leaning charities that they have neither the will nor the energy to raid any of the Banking executives, financial advisers or shonky accountants who are being revealed in the current Royal Commission as stealing hundreds of millions of dollars  from their "clients".
Spokesperson for the AFP, Senior Sergeant Plod also advised that in not having the authorisation the minister, The Harpy, Cash who is hiding because of her continual stuff-ups, it would not be seemly to act unilaterally in raiding major donors to the ruling rabble no matter how culpable or how tainted the donors offerings are.

Kelly Shaddupa-yo-Face, O' Dwyer, faux financial services and revenue minister caught with her pants down, drivelled on about ASIC actually been given teeth  and desperately tried to take a positive slant on the RC she and her gang of neer-do -wells had argued against for years.

With a curiously short time frame for a royal commission whose parameters were actually written by the banks before prime miniature Truffles would accept  its inevitability, his brilliant "tin-ear" for politics means that  the commissioners findings will co-incide with Barnyard Joyce's ultimatum about his leadership.

Adding to the Ruling Rabble's sense of levity, Craig Crackers Kelly ( no relation to Shaddupa Yo-Face but of similar intelligence) having returned from a junket to Azerbaijan defended the "democracy" of the said country even though their electoral commission had accidentally released the results of the presidential election the day before the vote!
Crackers said he was reluctant to criticize them as Australia's system was not too "ridgy-didge" either. 
He should know being a member of the ruling rabble.

Journalist Phil Coorey  fantasized that Dodo Dutton was the closest facsimilie the ruling rabble had for a statesman. He didn't announce whether this was an audition piece for the Melbourne Comedy Festival.

Comedy capers abound at the local ruling rabble branches as they fight each other over who has the least amount of ethics.

Well pleased with destroying the car industry Truffles has announced that rather than employing Australians to slaughter sheep on home soil,
$146,000,000.00 has been found to instead fund workers in Vietnam.

Author Richard Flanagan  rhapsodised eloquently at the National Press Club  t'other day.  Accurately nailing our current ruling rabble as a mob who have…"no moral legitimacy" and  "…a black comedy pregnant with a collapsed imagination and yearning for the chasm to overwhelm us…."
Flanagan outlined a vision of this country rarely espoused publicly. 
It was a moving and passionate address which was obtusely treated by one journalist, Sarah Martin (from the Ugly American Murdoch's West Australian) who told him he was "dissing" our democracy… he politely but bluntly disabused her of her fake news diversionary tactic. 
Later, on The Drum, panellist Ming Long responded to his speech in a truly middle class, air-headed, hand waving fashion praising his language but admitting she was not sure what he was talking about…sort of like talking about the frame around the Rembrandt and rather proving Flanagan's most salient points.

See it here….. it's worth a look and listen.
