Just a short post, beginning with FFS! Very exasperated, very loud!

FFS! Just read this on http://www.news.com.au/

It’s about Abbott’s meeting with Prince Charles. Maybe a Republic will be soon on the agenda.

“While the lunch-table conversation agenda is obviously unknown, it’s likely Mr Abbott’s climate change views which could potential cause a constitutional crisis in Australia will be raised.”

Ok, the first point is that a Double Dissolution is not when the public are disillusioned with both major parties. Neither is it a “constitutional crisis”.

It’s part of the Constitution. It’s there to resolve an impasse like the one that just occurred in the USA where the Tea Party Republicans thought it might be a good idea to just teach this guy in The Whitehorse “some respect”.

IT IS NOT A CRISIS!

I repeat, it is not a crisis!

Rupert Murdoch not getting his own way may seem like a crisis to his toadies and lickspittle such as Bolt.

It’s like this nonsense about a “mandate”. ALL politicians are elected with a mandate to do what they promised to do. Lower House and Upper House alike. It was after the Democrats didn’t block the GST as they promised to do that they were decimated at the following election. They were given a mandate to do just that at the 1998, but they negotiated to get a better GST.

All right, I guess not everyone will agree with that . That’s OK. That’s a matter for debate.

On the other hand, a Double Dissolution is NOT A CRISIS!!! It’s potentially part of the normal workings of democracy in this country.

Oh, I guess that’s the crisis.

My mistake.
