Rain on the way…

Heavy rain is expected across much of the east coast of Australia over the coming week, but there is cautious optimism that the Northern Rivers won't cop the worst of the falls this time.

Ron Curran, Ocean Shores

Is there any minister in the Morrison cabinet who has not been implicated in some way by rorts, cover-ups, shonky deals, illegal schemes (eg robodebt), or tainted by sexual assault allegations?

Parliament House seems to have become a freak show characterised by cover-up and secrecy and seems to have as little to do with governance as a sequence out of Monty Python or Mad Max.

Is there any leadership or integrity left at all? Am I dreaming? Someone pinch me. Is this really happening?

  1. Morrison’s pork-pie lovelies have got to be 100/% to make the grade ‘n trying to
    cover ’em up with sensible women in order to ‘look good’ is a false ceiling. The
    ‘boys’ will be boys brigade. Nothin’ will change.

  2. Whilst Team Morrison deservedly is pilloried we should not forget the voters that keep voting for Team Morrison even when scandals and rorts have been are exposed. There is the saying, “the government that you elect is the government that you deserve”.

  3. Yes Ron ! Refer to the Labor Party

    Stefanie.. how MANY Men are doing
    Time in jail for false accusations… ?
    Not a one way Stefanie….

  4. I understand what you are going through Ron, it’s like a recurring nightmare, although this is real. They are now having empathy training courses, really, the only way any of these chronic underachievers could improve their behaviour would be a complete brain transplant, keep the faith they can’t get away with this corrupt behaviour forever, even Morrison can’t lie forever.

  5. Keith – Morrison’s not capable of believing he can’t get his own way. Where there’s
    a will there’s a way. I don’t under estimate him. A dog’s fight is right up his alley.
    Wait for the bait that’s Murdoch.
