Now that it seems that Labor has decided that their best strategy is camouflage – agree to everything and hope that Queenslanders mistake them for the Liberal Party – I’ve been trying to work out how it’s all going to play out in the coming years.
One thing I’ve always believed is that ninety percent of everything is predictable. That’s what’s makes us so surprised by the unpredictable. After a few shocks, we feel we’ve entered a sort of Humpty Dumpty world where the guy sitting on the fence is tellling us the meaning of words even though we want to argue that words do not have a particular meaning just because a guy we thought couldn’t be put back together has somehow found himself sitting pretty…
Anyway, my twitter feed has been telling me about the Coalition’s determination to stop those nasty unions from taking away worker’s entitlements by introducing some Integrity Bill. I can’t remember what it’s actually called because every time the Liberals use the word “integrity”, I immediately have to spend a lot of time working out whether they’re for or against it.
Personally, I found it strange to see these in the same week that Masterchef George had “mistakenly” underpaid his workers $7.8 million dollars…
Now, I probably shouldn’t put the “mistakenly” in inverted commas. That implies that I didn’t really think it was a mistake. I mean, mistakes are easy to make. I’m sure George would understand if I went into one of his restaurants and mistakenly ran up a bill of $500 when I only meant to spend the fifty I had, and he could take it or leave it because who could afford that sort of money for a meal so I just presumed that the prices were wrong…
So how will things play out?
Will Trump lose the election and declare martial law?
Will Boris suddenly decide that Brexit is all to hard and attempt to argue that Britain has already symbolicly left the EU so they’ve made their point and everything can just continue as is?
Will Scott continue to start sentences with “How good is…” until he makes the ultimate faux pas and says something like, “How good is indefinite detention?”… Oh wait, he’s already done that one. Maybe “How good is climate change?”… Nup, he’s done that with a lump of coal. “How good is the gullibility of voters?” No, the gullible will just cheer… “How good is the privatisation of Medicare?”
Sorry, that’s just a scare campaign. Although like the “Never, ever” GST, two elections have passed and so we should have all forgotten.
Yep, this predicting business is harder than it looks. Although I’m pretty sure that the sun will rise tomorrow…
But even a prediction like that may get me in trouble with all those who argue that renewable energy like solar is unreliable…
