Of all the things that the governments of Australia (federal, state and local) need to address, what we are actually doing beggars belief! Locally, the council is blowing smoke up Mullum’s arse again by building a bypass off Jonson Street for more CARS in town and will probably make Ewingsdale Road worse. And don’t mention public art.
We need boarding houses for the homeless (in case you can’t remember them, they provided full board at a reasonable cost) but the authorities think ‘affordable housing’ – much more expensive and not what is required to get them all off the streets quicker.
And the state and feds can’t see that the clear and present danger is bushfires. We need those great big water-bombing helicopters, one for each state, but we are getting already obsolete submarines.
The current feds have no policies, do nothing when at ‘work’, and send our ‘oh so wonderful’ PM to the US for a love-in with the world’s most stupid, arrogant climate saboteur. We are being duchessed to join them in yet another disastrous adventure in the Middle East against a heavily sanctioned Iranian democracy where the people, especially the women, are treated far better than in the oppressive Saudi Kingdom – who also gave us the September 11 WTC atrocity. But we backed them against the Iranians. Sanctions caused the second world war with Germany and Japan. So forget history and you will repeat it. We need a lot more jobs for the masses of un and under-employed. But our current dictator has decided for us that… wheeeee! We are off to Mars with the Yanks!
We need better governance.
