ACT opinions

Posted on: 5 November 2012


The Government’s red and green mix is fraught with danger

The name commonly attached to 5th November is Guy Fawkes Day, named so for the man who led the gang that attempted to blow up the British Houses of Parliament in 1605. If only to give proper recognition to the man I think that one of its first acts of the ACT’s newly elected Legislative Assembly, representing as it does a multicultural electorate, should be to legislate the name be changed to Guido Fawkes Day.

With two MLAs of Italian Heritage in the Assembly it might be wise to do it sooner rather than later though perhaps the MLAs’ plans to cause problems for the Government are different.

The Assembly could pass the Guido Fawkes Bill quickly if only to show they were pleased that no latter day Fawkes Gang tried to blow it up though I have to say the idea might have crossed the mind of a group of people I know who are enemies of the Kelly Gang – the two MLAs of Italian Heritage are not among this group.

And if only to show that the new Greens MLA has not been given a ministry just because he’s a pretty face, let him have the honour of presenting the Guido Fawkes Bill. A point he could use in getting the legislation accepted is the surprise people get who thought Joe Green was a famous sportsperson, when they find out he was Giuseppe Verdi.

Now that I’ve got that most serious matter off my chest let me put forward some less serious issues of rates, roads and rubbish. There are more, of course, but as I don’t want to overburden the ACT Government a brief mention of them might be enough.

I’m sure you’ll agree with me that because more homeless people are looking for shelter than there are same sex couples looking to get married, the Government can take its time about the latter. With regard to the former this is also where light rail comes in. If Government makes sure the light rail issue is kept on track, carriages to house the homeless could be left permanently at the points in the Government’s political tram shed. The shed could be built by unemployed construction workers living in the carriages.

As for disability, no doubt Government MLAs will pray every day that no one ever again is born with a disability thus excusing the need for a National Disability Insurance Scheme and that no one ever gets disabled in an accident. If their prayers are successful this will help ensure our health system will be the best in Australia leaving the Federal Treasurer to sit back without having to worry where the money for the system will come from.

As for the NBN, by the time it arrives, perhaps technology will be so advanced we’ll be using a system that takes the thoughts out of your head and sends them telepathically to whoever you want. Perhaps the same could be done with education classes?

I don’t want to give the impression that the job of being an Government MLA is onerous but, if what they do gets voters so hot under the collar that they breathe out substantial quantities of hot air, the anthropogenic warming created will cause climate change in the ACT’s political atmosphere and bring storms that will wash the Government out of office.
