Tony or Julia?

Posted on: 18 July 2010

From time to time people send me blogs that, with their permission, I think worthwhile republishing on my website. This is one such blog.

Posted: July 17, 2010 by Marilyn Kay Dennis in Blots, Politics, Smudges Tags: Australia, Prime Minister, Labor, Coalition, Elections, Senate, House of Representatives

After all the “will she, or won’t she?”,”she” finally did.  Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, has called a Federal election.  House of Representatives and half of the Senate. She wants to be Australia’s first elected female Prime Minister.  For now, she’s Australia’s first female Prime Minister by usurpation.  She grew fangs, attacked Prime Minister Rudd, and chucked him on the garbage heap.  Finished.  A blot.

Should we trust her?  Can we trust her? Asked about Mental Health, she didn’t answer.  A smudge

She mentioned Health, but not a syllable about Mental Health.  That could be a good thing.  She’s messed up everything she’s tried since her coup of 24 June.  More smudges.

Leader of the Opposition Coalition, Tony Abbott, leaped into action.  Fully clothed.  For a change.  (Those Speedos!  Yuck!  A definite blot.)

He refused to say he’d kill Work Choices.  Only committed to forgetting them for the next three years.  Wouldn’t say any more.  Smudge.

Should we  trust him?  Can we trust him? He hasn’t said anything constructive since he’s been Leader of the Opposition.  He just shoots at everything the Government tries to do.  Smudges.

If Julia wins the election, she wants to forget the past, in the interest of “moving forward”.  She said the two words over thirty times in her speech.  “Working families” has now been replaced by “hard-working Australians”.  I didn’t count those.  Around ten?  Fifteen?  Fewer than our “moves forward”. If Tony wins, the Government will be “his” Government.  It sounded frightening.

So, Tony or Julia?  Do I really have to choose?  Isn’t there anyone else?

We urgently need to bring back the Australian Democrats.  As referees.  Someone needs to stand up and talk a bit of sense when the others get out of hand.

Meanwhile, we’re in Election mode for the next thirty-three days.  Elections on 21 August.  And may God have mercy on our souls.

It might be a bit difficult for people to understand the “blot” and “smudge” bits without knowing that the site is called “Smudges, Blots and Stains”, the sub-title being “A Filing System for Political Things”.
