Changing narratives..or Not.

G’day Possums,

We've been busy playing renovator this week.

I'm remodelling the second bathroom and changing its configuration … a cavity sliding door has been fitted saving much space and providing an agreeably larger and less cluttered feel to the room…

So this week it’s really all about the chronicle of our country’s inexorable slide into fascism with Wombat Droppings
Rabid-the-Hun going overboard
Freshly assassinated prime miniature, Rabid-the-Hun has been as good with his word to current pm Malcon Turnbullfop as he was with the electorate. Coming out of hiding and the sulks, Rabid being a good IPA office boy, has been attempting to re-write history to suit his own peculiar view of the world by claiming with his three shock jock friends he has left, that it wasn’t that he was really “on-the-nose,” just misunderstood, and that because Turnbullfop hasn’t changed any of his policy disasters his culling was all because of a press beat-up, the Runes, the Masons and/or Communist plotting from Nth Korea.

Many in the country have had bouts of vomiting on hearing the really loopy “far right” extol Rabid’s copious serves of humanity, decency, morality and sheer brilliance as a national leader but quickly recover on also hearing that there have been mass defections from the liarbril party at his political knifing with some suggesting the orange life-boats be pressed into service again to take them to asylum in Indonesia.
The national euphoria on this malignant person’s demise has been palpable but the real sting in the tail is that Turnbullfop will not be allowed by the “right” to change much, so all it really is, is a case of new conductor, musicians changing chairs but the ensemble is scratching out the same dirge only smiling about it and saying how romantic it is.
Australians seem to have been fooled into thinking “things-are-better-now”…. when it’s really two minutes to midnight….. the following is a section of a piece by Victoria Rollinson from her blog and re-used in the “Australian Independent Media” pages.  
 “The right wing narrative is a scary story about a community I would never choose to live in. I was not brought up to blame the disadvantaged for their predicament. And nor will I bring up my child to think our societies’ problems are the fault of the vulnerable, the disabled, the sick, the mentally ill, the poor and the abused. The rejection of the Abbott government has, I hope, proved that the majority of Australians, like me, reject this story and don’t believe that life is a race. I hope so. But either way, next time someone says the Liberal government is missing a narrative, just remember the narrative is there. It’s just not a very nice story and they know this so they do their best to keep it hidden. Don’t let them get away with it. You know the story. Call it out whenever you see it.”  Victoria Rollinson
Hoo-roo, Petals,
