Lol. It’s like one of those community meetings where something exceptional has happened and some whacko or hippy gets a hold of the mic. for an extended period and they’re saying Y’know why can’t we completely do things differently and all get along? And a group of people are actually agreeing with them and you’re thinking have I really become that cynical, or is that hippy fucking crazy.
And then there’s Bob Katter and I’ve _always_ thought he was scary. It used to be just that he looked scary, but now with the position he’s in, he is actually scary. He reminds me of one of the leaders of the aliens in the original V. Someone should get him some dark, wrap-around sunglasses and a dark-red jump suit. That would be awesome. And Adam Bandt must be pissed that he’s a Green and not an independent because he ain’t getting a fraction of attention that the other three are getting. He’s also scary, because I dead-set remember that name from years back but I can’t remember if it was from one of those student unions like NUS, or from one of the ultra-left groups. Scary because it’s another reminder that people I knew in the protest-kid days are now politicians.
Anyway, it won’t be long before the powers that be from the rest of the world send Australia a memo to cut that shit out because *a)* all this talk of ‘unity govt’ is making a mockery of the illusion of choice in regular two-party systems and *b)* in two weeks time, when there’s still no government, and society hasn’t fallen apart, people will see that they don’t need politicians at all, and that all we need are an unelected public service, the corporate elite and the Illuminati/Lizardmen.
