It’s a shame more people didn’t vote for the Greens.

While the holier-than-thou, ‘mature’ Labor Party are pumping their chests about economic management, The Commonwealth Bank has notched up a record nine billion dollar profit and, thanks to the privatisation by Paul Keating, the Australian public won’t see a cent.

Mr Keating may dismiss and berate The Greens’ leader Adam Bandt for referring to him as ‘the Patron Saint of Privatisation’ but the evidence speaks for itself.

To claim some ‘mandate’, with only a third of the primary vote, to uphold a borrowed Coalition policy of 243 billion dollars in tax cuts for the super wealthy, is fake, cunning and delusional.  

It’s a shame more people didn’t vote for The Greens, including some f…… locals who couldn’t be bothered to vote at all. Climate action might be a real possibility and not more coal and gas fields, as proposed by Labor.
