A Nice Letter
In response to the jailing of Pauline Hanson and the Howard government minister Tony "Mad Monk" Abbott's admitted role in pursuing Hanson to the point of establishing a slush fund one can only ask how far will this ideologically,maniacal government go to achieve their end. This Miserable, Miserly, Dishonest, Lying, Rorting Federal Government (and I'm being nice) will stop at nothing, ruin the lives of anyone who stands in their way as Shaun Carney (Melbourne Age)recently wrote of securing "Absolute Power".
One would have thought that Howard,Anderson and the likes of state premiers such as Kennett,Court etc have achieved plenty in their short time to belt all battling Australians including Workers, Families, ,Unemployed, Aborigines, Disabled, etc. whilst providing policies to favour the wealthy.
Pay rises to Ministers and Backbenchers of up to $150,000 for postage and election propaganda whilst cutting the benefits of the least fortunate in society including Carers of people with a disibility (up to $87.00 per fortnight)of these meagre entitlements.
Legitimate Refugees fleeing Bin Laden, Hussain or Mugabe, Honest Workers defending job losses and entitlements whilst executives and Government ministers and backbenchers cant get their noses deep enough into the trough, Unions defending such workers are put through a waste of $70 Million in the Royal Commission targeting Martin Kingham as an individual and his union the CFMEU whilst at the same time not one word from the Morally Bancrupt and Corrupt Howard Government or its ministers on the Adler, Williams affairs in our largest corporate loss in HIH.
Should Abbott have pursued these two the way he admits he pursued Hanson?
Ansett workers are still waiting for their entitlements while John Howard pays Stan Howards workers their entitlements with Taxpayers money.Bishop and Kerosene scandal, McGauran staying at his girlfriends flat and claiming $300 per night Living away from home allowance as much as a pensiner or unemployed person gets in a fortnight.McGaurans punishment was he was given a rise and made Science Minister by John Howard.From bringing thousands of Wealthy (and white) skilled people to Australia (pushing up house and land prices because they can pay cash whilst Australian get a 30 year loan if they can find a place.Howard needs an inquiry to tell him this!) whilst imposing crippling Hecs on Australian Youth and selling rich overseas students our own Students University places and bringing trades men and women to this country because its cheaper and easier than training young unemployed Australians including Aboriginal Australians.(Howard would rather look after the Rich from another country than the Poor from his own.
Cuts to Public Schools and Universities while increasing funds to the wealthy private.
This is the worst, talentless, miserable, uncaring,
hypocrytical, Federal government ever in the history of this once great nation and the best part is "History will show/prove it".
To end as much as i DISAGREE with Pauline Hanson's views, Policies and Party as an Australian in a supposedly free and democratic society i DEFEND her RIGHT to say what she believes in.
That was what Australia and Australians used to be about.
Abbott should resign in disgrace from this goverment but after habitual episodes of Lying from the Prime Minister and Corrupt or Incompetant episodes from the likes of McGauran,Ruddock,Bishop,Reith,"Iron Pen"Tuckey, etc one wont be holding their breath.If ever we needed a true Socialist Labour Government now is the time.
Whew i got all that off my chest in time without getting disconnected !
