So Australia has turned a dark corner. Once, this was a nice place to live, easygoing, friendly, where everybody was more concerned with the Melbourne Cup and the beach than the antics in Parliament - but no longer. In a series of insidious moves, we are being herded in the direction of the Tea Party, driven by odious people who can't keep their fingers out of the till and who apparently don't have the brains to avoid getting their photos taken with notorious criminals.
What is their goal? That hasn't been revealed in ICAC yet, but it isn't what we thought we were voting for (don't worry, I vote Green). I believe the Liberal Party wants to dismantle the welfare state, impoverishing workers while setting up a state where a very small group of haves totally dominate a very large group of have nots, for the purpose of enriching themselves and their serpentine mates.
