  1. Re David Lowe’s Report Cardon the Federal Labor Government: While the current Labor government appears to be far more benign than its Neo-Liberal predecessor, it is just a lapse back to “Have-Their-Cake-And Eat-It-Too”policies prevalent in governments world-wide that facilitate domination by powerful Corporate interests to the detriment of the general populace. Albo et al are evidently regarding the heavy vote for TEAL Independent candidates as a hiccup, despitetheira heavy loss in primary votes and the massacre of the Liberal Party, generated by Joe & Josephine Public’s now heightened awareness that all is not well with Oz Democracy. They must look instead at the Election returns; they had to sweat for Independents’ preferences to secure government, and revise their policies and practices accordingly. The trends have been established and won’t go away through their current term; if they don’t make some real changes for the better, the best they can hope for by the next election will be a minority government heavily reliant on the cross bench – to the point where they can’t rely on a bipartisan vote to defeat them and bring down the wishy-washy legislation we have witnessed so far. The World is facing drastic problems requiring strong solutions – the nettles must be grasped. The warnings are evident, they must act.
