I felt the old rage again this week!

The oligarchy has been at it again, this time wielding its dirty, crooked little penis, I mean stick, at the Shire’s most vulnerable – the homeless.

When I read that Reflections Holiday Parks intended to board up Brunswick’s housie shed – a valuable public asset – to prevent the homeless from seeking shelter from the ails of winter, I saw red in tooth and claw.

Bad look for business, huh?

It’s yet another glaring example of a political stunt.

How dare they! Although I’m not a Brunswick Heads resident, I’m often out walking, and how I see it is the housie shed is rarely, if ever used.

Except, of course, for the annual woodchop event!

Fed up to the bone with the actions of the rich and powerful, I did what any socially-just, mad fucking witch would do and attended my first local Country Witches Association meet.

I’ve signed up for life membership. Egalitarian democracy my arse! Bring on the dissent.

  1. Instead of raging against those inflicting further indignity on people who are homeless, why not direct that anger at powerful politicians who have the power/responsibility to provide social housing?

    If enough people wrote angry (not offensive) letters to the minister responsible, and stopped voting for those who do nothing, things may change.

  2. Huzzah !
    It’s crazy … why board it up?
    Just because someone is using it as a ‘slightly longer term’ shelter… ??
    It’s a nice place to camp for a few winter months… Go figure
