07:13 pm - Sheesh ...
Over the last year or so, I've been watching or reading the news, and often been left in a quandry.
Yes, I've been quite unable to decide whose government (and their decisions) I've been more ashamed of. The USA, UK and Australia have all had their moments, but in light of recent events my mind has been made up.
John Howard and friends are deliberately and maliciously making Australia a worse place to live, and I am ashamed of the lot of them. Industrial relations, yet more anti-terrorism laws, voluntary student unionism and the strangling of the university system, anti-choice movement, and they'll have control of Parliament and the Senate for a couple of years yet. Sheesh.

I too have noticed this since I left (correlation, not causative).

I hate them too. Especially Tony "Vatican Roulette" Abbott.

Implosion is imminent. At least we fear, and hope, it is.

The only thing I can say, and it's what keeps me going, is that we managed to leave the 50s once in Australia and, once Howard et al move on, we can do it again.

And this time we can warn people with the evidence that selfish voting gives you evil leaders.

Judging from the news reports from Cronulla this morning, you can't blame it all on the politicians. How about a Woomera Reeducation Camp for Drongos?

Can we start with Alan Jones? Because if what The Age is reporting about him reading out on air is true then I think he should be charged with incitement to riot for starters.

That is just unbelievable.

You mean "I'm the person that's led this charge here" ? Revolting!

Probably about what we should expect from Mr. Jones, though.

Yep, that was exactly what I was referring to.

And under the brand-new, allegedly you-beaut anti-terrorism laws I think he can be charged. Interesting...

I think that the Cronulla riots and the assaults in other beach suburbs are a direct result of the hazy message Howard gives on racism, the lack of funding for policing areas appropriately and the complete lack of brainspace directed at race relations by our current government.

We've had riots in Queensland, riots in WA, riots in Sydney. What's it going to take for Howard to realise that race is a real problem?
