Wombat droppings or Politics in OZ

I was listening to The Science Program on ABC, RN when presenter Robyn Williams began his interview with Lisa Jardine “….. tracing the evolution of scientific endeavour in Britain over the last four centuries…..and discussing her series and commentary on radio and television science broadcasting in the UK, comparing successful techniques used in landmark series such as The Ascent of Man… a 13-part television series made by BBC in 1973, written and presented by Lisa Jardine’s father, Jacob Bronowski.”…  a program I loved watching.
The interview finished with a replaying of the last moments of “The Ascent of Man”; Bronowski’s moving and heartfelt summation on humanity as he picked up a handful of human ash from a pond in Auschwitz where many of his family had been murdered.
I had been reading reports of  Pyne the Whyne’s ideological plans for Oz education prior to listening to this program and  realised, hearing  Bronowski  the scale of the humanitarian abyss and intellectual gulf that separates the likes of Pyne and his cohort from the likes of the Bronowski’s of this world. It brought me close to tears. 

Hey-Ho, Hey-Ho it’s back to the 50’s we go!

Interestingly true to form “The Whyne” was duly slapped down and effectively told to “shut-the-f--k-up” by “Rabbutt” ‘cause he’d let the cat out of the bag in announcing a cap on tertiary places and (again…back to the future) the abolition of student union fees.
Sinodinos was slapped down too when he suggested “…. Getting into the super…”
As this two-stepping was common prior to the election we shouldn’t be surprised now by rabble-like pronouncements and confusion over what passes for policy-on-the-run.
Joe “Oh-What-a-Feeling” Hockey, back from Bali, apologised for not finding a financial or budget crisis and was sorry that “the-bottom-line” was not as bad as he had predicted but we couldn’t trust the figures anyway!
He then ran away.
Calling Kevin 07+6 called by "Rabbutt", “…a hyper control freak” over similar media control..... one thing seems certain about our new Prime Miniature, he is of the old “don’t-do-as-I-do, do-as-I-say” school.

Hey-Ho, Hey-Ho it’s back to the 50’s we go!

“Rabbott’s” and “The Drone” Morrison’s politicisation of the military has taken another step forward from where “Little Johnny” Howard and Peter “Rottweiler” Reith had left it with SIEV X and the “Children Overboard” calumny’s.
By literally running for cover over not just the ten boats that have reached here but particularly, the one that didn’t, which sank 50 meters from shore 24 hours after sending distress signals (the survivors claim) and drowning at least 50 men, women and children. The military are being made the front line in “Rabbutt’s” cruel ideological war on asylum seekers and as the Liarbril’s run and hide by closing down any media commentary it is the military left holding the bodies.
It will be interesting to see how long the ADF will tolerate the high standing they presently have with the Australian public being trashed by “Rabbott”, “The Drone” and minions’ ideological insanity.
So, is this is our new “…Grown-up Government”?
Things are so serious that Alexander “Things-that-Batter” Downer has given himself a guernsey and is making pronouncements to anyone who will listen.

Hello, hello, is anyone there?
Like my Fish-Nets, thweeetie?

Hey-Ho, Hey-Ho it’s back to the 50’s we go!

Greens Leader Christine Milne has been positively and gangrenously careless and lost all six of her top staff….. and a third of the vote…dark days being Green.
But things may be looking up …..they almost have someone on their side… the new Environment Minister, Greg ”Ozone-Hole” Hunt.
“Ozone-Hole” says that although he accepts the IPCC report's findings on climate change (with fingers crossed) he isn't planning any immediate action to protect Australia's coastal communities as it’s all a long, long, long way away and we have to stop or buy the boats first. Second, reduce the NBN to a technological laughing stock, and then Third, repeal the Carbon Pricing scheme so that the monies saved can be used by the CSG industry to lower the water table, pollute farmland, export the profits, push up domestic gas prices and further pollute and debilitate the earth’s atmosphere with the consequent huge releases of Methane.
This will also keep Manufacturing Minister, Ian “Chainsaw” Mc Farlane very happy as his conversion from climate scepticism was never really solid, no matter what he told farmers in NSW and besides, he’s another from the Far North and they are different!

Senator, George “Loose-Lips” Brandis is another “Far North-er” doing thing differently claiming from the taxpayer, nearly $1,700 on flights, accommodation and car hire for attending a wedding…. he says, “… primarily for work purposes…...” Really?

Yeah and the dog ate his homework, too.
He is also currently revising the Parliamentary Code of Conduct.
That should make for interesting reading.
“I-did-nothing-wrong,” said the Attorney General, “and besides, I’ve paid the money back.” Hissily, stamping his foot, he runs away.
He attended this wedding in 2011 when trying to bring the Govt down  by assiduously and zealously pursuing Craig Tommo and “Slippery” Pete over matters similar.
This hypocrite of a First Law Officer should be sacked but let’s see what “Rabbutt” will say…. probably only reprise “Little Johnny” Howard’s line when Peter “Rottweiler” Reith loaned his Commonwealth phone to his son who then racked-up a $20,000.00 bill.
“It’s not a hanging offence” said that ex-Prime Miniature.
Also remembering his own re-payment of $10.000.00 for his book publicity tour will help “Rabbutt” make up his mind, too.

Senator Brandis was accompanied in this fraud by Barnaby Joyce who, although less financially culpable, and once an accountant, failed to see anything untoward either…. till it was exposed.

Hey-Ho, Hey-Ho it’s back to the 50’s we go!

Here in The Tardis State “Where-all-goes-Backward” pretend premier, Dennis “Inutulis Rusticus” Napthine has spent, it is only said, (he will not say) $90,000,000.00 buying most of the Evo Apartments that may be surrounded by the new East-West freeway.
Locals in Mooroopna thought some of the money could be better spent on a spell-checker for the staff who organised the plaque on Moorpoopna’s, (oops), new Police station.
Poolic Minster, Kim “Down-the-Drain” Wells denied he was keeping the mis-pelled plaque to sell on E-Bay and later said it was to be mounted on the column of the late, Eight Hour Day opposite Trades Hall to remind everywun whose booss.
Hundreds of locals closer to the proposed freeway rejoiced at their “Evo” compatriots good fortune and celebrated on the streets, North Korean Style, grateful for being chosen as a sacrifice in getting no compensation for the same lack of amenity.  
They appreciate that this is The Way of the True Leader and necessary penance for their trendy presumption in occupying good inner-city land only to live on and where their homes are blocking progress.
Ex PM “Big-Red” Gillard has had an enthusiastic even if “excitable-girly” reception in both Sydney and Melbourne for a controlled conversation with Anne Summers.
Leigh Sales’ snide and bitchy comments on ABC’s 7.30 on the event in place of reporting it once again added nothing to our understanding, except showcasing her quite astounding and unnecessary poor manners which may indicates more about Sales’ poverty of technique than anything else.
“Rabbutt” has arrived back from apologizing to the Indonesians and tugging his fore-lock has promising not to do it again.
The boats, by-the-way, haven’t stopped!

Cheers Petals,
