Labor's Love Lost
I note, upon reading some of your references to "HOWARD Government", being as we know the liberal party, and in every sense portrays and acts that way, liberally, but not in the best interest of it's constituents.
And, I note further your "hope it is a labour government", which in itself sounds reasonable, but alas, the labour government is no longer representative of the "worker" or "little man", or anyone else that hasn't got a truly "wealthy" bank account.
It appears as though both parties are utilizing the same political tactics, with the same goals well and truly being prescribed by who ever it is that is formulating their policies and decisions.
Neither party is representative of any of the majority of the population, as can be witnessed by the decisions and policies that they adhere to, regardless of common sense, common decency and impartiality.
I would strongly recommend the removal of the "legal profession" from the administration of either party, for they are a breed of their own, and do in fact practise openly in emptying their clients pockets, under the pretext of "looking after their best interests", then leading them up the "garden path" to a stage whereby, there are "no more funds", then they aptly suggest, that they should no longer pursue the matter.
If you want a better "voice" in the control of the decision making for our communities, then the best avenue of attack, is to select the party that you want to join, and participate in the decision making, but in order to make it an effective voice, you will have to "stack " all the branches and all the meetings with all your pre-paid or pre-promised cronies, and then "reject" every motion that is forwarded to "your head office", and simply impose your decisions on the party, regardless of their wishes.
By the time you reach this level, which is morally below ground level, you will have your own dictatorship, much in alignment of the present parties and governments.
There should be much more open and public government, and much more opportunity for the "voter" to have an active voice in their formulation and enactment.
Plain and simple, sack the scum at the top and put in place a more responsible and impartial, executive and administration ... No solicitors or legal eagles, no school teachers, or union delegates... and hopefully no more clowns.
