I know the rest of Australia thinks our politics is banana republic kangaroo courting, but? well?

I mean it's bad, no deny It Is Really Bad, But?

Um?

Can any other aussie on here claim their state politics is Good?

Maybe, by a long stretch of the imagination ACT Might (big might) be bearable but?

Is it?
Is it Really Buddy?
Or do you still have politician you have to chose the best of the worst of?

Will say what they think the electorate wants to hear without any personal commitment?

I hate hanson but at least she believes in what she says.

Labour and liberal just believe in whatever formula will get them vote to get into power and then will say or do whatever they think they have to do to stay in power.

The only politicians who seem to be true believers are the ultraconservatives whose true beliefs hurt many people.

There does not seem to be any politicians on the side of the environment and people who can be trusted not to sell out or are gormless gonads like our favourite midnight oil singer.

Can you name a politician who can be trusted to stand by their commitments who is NOT ultra conservative MSG?

I don't give a fuck if "Hanson believe in what she says" when what she says is incoherent, xenophobic bullshit.

I'm sick to death of this messianic view of politics. Fuck true believers. Fuck ideologues. Of all persuasions.

If there's anything the last 2 years ought to have taught us it's that what we need is a commitment to representative, and participatory, democracy. People need to stop sitting on their arses and waiting for "leaders" to fix the world in their image.

Well MSG as a member of Amnesty International I write letters to and get hundreds of signatures on petitions to send to Australian Politicians.

And as a person who believes in a strong safety net, I have to support the greens or labour.
So I guess I am bitter and twisted that labour started the off shore concentration camps and helped keep them running.

Maybe because the australian people don't belive in asylum seekers?

well I agree with you, but not everyone does, and we just have to acknowledge that.

as far as the treatment of asylum seekers though, I think the tide is again turning, albeit slowly. I have to believe that the deliberate, evil bastardry of Dutton has to be turned around. we can't keep up this crime against humanity being perpetrated on the poor bastards on Manus and Nauru indefinitely

also FYI the song Working Class Man was written by Jonathan Cain of Journey and includes these lyrics

Quote:
Well he's a steel town disciple
He's a legend of his kind
He's running like a cyclone
Across the wild mid western sky
Oh oh oh, he's a working class man

He believes in god and Elvis
He gets out when he can
He did his time in Vietnam
Still mad at Uncle Sam
He's a simple man
With a heart of gold
In a complicated land
Oh he's a working class man

I don't side with Barnaby on anything to do with politics but after reading that article I think he comes off better than his protagonists.

Remember, a prime minister isn't a head of state. He (occasionally she) is just the poor sap who's saddled with the job of running the country.

(Although, if Australia is like Canada in this regard, which wouldn't surprise me a bit, some prime ministers chafe at that limitation, and really really really want to be seen as heads of state.)
