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.
