Day to Day Politics: A letter to the editor, from Morrie Moneyweather.

Wednesday March 16 2016

Author’s Note: From time to time we receive letters from people. Morrie hasn’t written for a while so given our policy of openness I thought I would share his latest effort.

Dear Lord.

I sword I would never write to this blog again after the way I was treated last time but events of the past few days have left me angry. That old fart John Lord who writes for yous needs another kick up the arse.

He really has become embrassassing. I mean that article criticizing Americia’s great white hope, Donald Trump was pretty crook but this time I’m going to forget my breading, my manners, and my education and tell the old prick what I think of him.

I mean there is just no limit to how far he will stoop, no gutter to low to slide into, no sewer to murky for him to loose himself in.

I mean I’m not sure what’s the biggest. His immature heart he wares on his sleeve or the chip he has on both his shoulders.

We had a great leader in Tony Abbott. If you don’t think so look at these remarkable insights.

‘There is a place for everything and it’s not necessarily everyone’s place to come to Australia.’

‘Bad bosses, like bad fathers and husbands, should be tolerated because they do more good than harm.’

‘We have to get this straight: euthanasia is not about the right to die, it is about the right to kill.’’

‘Abortion is the easy way out. It’s hardly surprising that people should choose the most convenient exit from awkward situations.’

‘We just can’t stop people from being homeless if that’s their choice.’

What a remakable man he was.

How fortunate the country was when the opportunity arose to give a better man a chance to lead.

And all Lord does is criticise. Ask yourself this question.

Has Australia ever, so wisely, elected a man so positive about the countries future and expressed it so clearly? I mean there’s never bean a better time to be an Australian.

Malcolm is a person with truth and transparency. So sensitive to those who cannot help themselves. So willing to endorse and foster equality. So knoweggible of technology and science. So aware to the needs of women.

That’s why women like him as there Prime minster. So adeptt at policy formation and its implementation. So on top of good communication. So diplomatic, so ambassadorial, so sensitive, in his attitude toward others. So accomdating of those who desires equality.

And in touch with a modern pluralist society. A man so sophisticated in deep worldly acumen and discernment, yet religiously motivated.

What Lord wrote yesterday was just unadulterated crap. That’s the word Tony used to describe Climate Change. Malcolm agrees with him that it’s all a socialist plot. So much so that he intends to impliment the Direct Action plan that Tony invented. It’s just the best plan ever and we all share the cost. Why should business pay all the time? They have enough tax to pay.

Just like the NBN. Malcolm invented that too. I can’t work out what people are complaining about. It’s fast enough for me to follow. You would reckon people would be grateful for all the education the Internet provides. I know my son Miles and his classmates in year 12 at Melbourne Grammar do. I mean the amount of homework Miles does every night with his bedroom door locked is astonishing.

Now another thing. All this talk about Peta and Tony has got to stop. She was never in Foreign Affairs anyway. That Nikki Savva has a lot to answer for starting all those rumours.

John Lord just keeps hurling insults every day. Never a fact to back up his lying. Just wild claims about anything that suits him. I mean he thinks he has some sort of influence over people.

Fancy saying that Malcolm doesn’t have a plan. His words have a wiff of effluence about them. His plan is to stay in power so that the rich can support the poor with whatever is left over after all our expenses are catered for. After all there are a lot of costs associated with being rich.

And, don’t let me get started on that bloody safe schools program. If the kids can’t take a bit of bullying then they should just change schools. Miles gets bullied about our family wealth every day. Doesn’t worry him.

Now when Peter Dutton says if Labor is elected the stock market will crash and the economy will collapse and we will have a recession you have to believe him. After all he was a policeman.

I don’t mind telling you that with that sort of insight he should be treasurer.

So after you have all red this I expect yous to pick up your game and start printing the facts about things instead of all the commo clap trap yous print. How about printing the truth like the right does.

Yours Faithfully.

Morrie Moneyweather.


As usual me piece was proof read by Miles mates in the Melbourne Gramma final year English class.

My thought for the day.

 ‘There’s nothing like the certainty of a closed mind’

And another thought

‘Good grammar is vitality important but is secondary to the expression of a valid well-constructed point of view’.

    Are you sure this Moneyweather guy is Australian? He seems suspiciously like one of our Trump supporters.

  2. Terry2

    Even allowing for daylight saving,John, it’s still Wednesday 16 March in the Far North.

  3. Deadkatbounce

    The letter is satire right?

  4. Deidre Zanker

    Yes it is satire.

  5. babyjewels10

    A good laugh to start the day, thank you Lord.

  6. John Kelly

    Actually I think Maurice’s writing has improved. Did he hit his head recently?

  7. John Lord

    I posted it on a Facebook debate page and they think it’s for real saying I probably get many letters like it. What have I done.

  8. Möbius Ecko

    No John. In the name of expediency he’s given up on overriding the spell and grammar checker each and every time because he knows better than a dumb arse machine probably programmed by commies spying on him. He’s probably about half way through adding his “correct” spelling and grammar to the user dictionary, and once that’s done Morrie should be back to his normal eloquent and perspicuous self.

  9. oscitant

    I thought satire was supposed to be witty.

  10. gee

    do people like this actually exist? jesus wept.

  11. Gangey1959

    Miles has been working on his grammer an spellink. Has he been bad at skool an hadd to do detection?

    It is the eye’s fault !! – truth is in the eyes of the beholder

    From (

    Reality tunnel is a term, akin to the idea of representative realism, coined by Timothy Leary (1920-1996).
    It was further expanded on by Robert Anton Wilson (1932-2007), who wrote about the idea extensively in his 1983 book Prometheus Rising.
    The theory states that, with a subconscious set of mental filters formed from his or her beliefs and experiences, every individual interprets the same world differently, hence “Truth is in the eye of the beholder”.
    In a chapter Wilson co-wrote with Timothy Leary in Leary’s 1988 book Neuropolitique (a revised edition of the 1977 book Neuropolitics), Wilson and Leary explained further:
    The gene-pool politics which monitor power struggles among terrestrial humanity are transcended in this info-world, i.e. seen as static, artificial charades. One is neither coercively manipulated into another’s territorial reality nor forced to struggle against it with reciprocal game-playing (the usual soap opera dramatics). One simply elects, consciously, whether or not to share the other’s reality tunnel.

    Every kind of ignorance in the world all results from not realizing that our perceptions are gambles.
    We believe what we see and then we believe our interpretation of it, we don’t even know we are making an interpretation most of the time. We think this is reality. – Robert Anton Wilson

    And from (
    The Origins of Truth by Jason D. Peterson
    A common proverb says, “Truth is in the eye of the beholder.”
    In Science, Facts, and Feminism Ruth Hubbard puts forth the idea that truth has been created by primarily upper-class, white, European males, referred to as fact-maker s.
    Because of the history of false truths and factual falsehoods, I believe, instead, that truth arises from what society wants to see, hear, and know.

    Something must be done about the ophthalmic, auditory, education industries !!!!

  13. Greg Rapmund

    Yeah, John Lord, how dares you constantly criticise this TurnBott guvmint. On and on yous go.

  25. oscitant

    @ Sir Scotch..
    trying to pass off condescension as wit now eh?
    what an intellectual midget you have proven to yourself to be.
    and oh yes, because I find this kind of banal trite uninspirational, for you, that means I automatically must be a turnbull supporter.
    credit where credit is due though.. the writer certainly understands his demographic here. small things amuse small minds. carry on.
