What’s with all this argument about who can govern Australia? Everyone knows that Australia is governed on the BTR Principle (Born to Rule). Some people have BTR and others don’t. The Coalition for instance has stacks of BTR. The law doesn’t apply to them because quite obviously law is only needed to sort out right from wrong, and they are never wrong. The constitution is a set of rules and conventions designed to keep the BTR faction on the treasury benches, it can be freely circumvented if this is ever in doubt. Suborning Governor Generals and sympathetic Judges, refusing to pass Supply Bills and securing their position by filibustering in the High Court are quite acceptable for the BTR faction. It goes without saying that PM’s have every right to pre-empt High Court decisions, straighten them up, and point them in the right direction.

Grubby little Greens have very little BTR, it is only right that they should instantly obey the law and respect the constitution. Let them posture as unfortunate victims of circumstances if they must, but really they should shut up and just suck it in, complaining is a waste of time, they are condemned forever to the underclass.

Now on the bottom of the tree are left leaning Liberals and Labourites, they have no BTR at all. Why even asking a simple question about NZ citizenship rules is reason enough for accusations of treachery (maybe treason?), and public denunciation. Let’s set up the stocks in Martin Place or Garema Square. Such gross disloyalty surely deserves the scaffold (but we have lost the privilege of hanging the undesirables on the opposition benches, mores the pity).

Note that it is LGBTi and most definitely not LG(BTR)i. Enough said!

The Rum Corp and the Squatters still rule right! Enough of this dribble about Democracy, oligarchy is never out of fashion!!!
