Ok, I know a lot of you lefties like to mock the good, Christian folk of the LNP. Not content with mocking George Pell for his views on climate change, you take every opportunity to indulge yourselves when something goes slightly wrong with the current government.
Now, it’s been suggested that one of their members has been travelling overseas to indulge in “sex tourism”.
Nothing illegal in that, of course. I mean, the AFP have investigated and made it clear that it’s not a crime. And there’s no Scott Morrison Tourism Australia promotion for “sex tourism” in Australia where some model asks, “Where the bloody hell are ya?” After all, one could hardly indulge in a seedy Australian sex tour, and that’s not just because the wages here aren’t competitive.
It’s because of fellow Coalition members who support family values.
Members like Tony Abbott, Andrew Broad and George Christensen…
Ok, Andrew Broad looks a bit of a hypocrite at the moment, but nobody could criticise the other two. Well, not without a defamation action, anyway.
So, I’m waiting for the moral right of the LNP to come out and condemn this MP. Or at the very least, condemn the MP… I’d suggest that they use the privilege of Parliament, but I doubt that we’ll have a sitting while Scott Morrison is still PM.
Now, I know all you comrades have always thought so, but I have to admit that I’m starting to find Scottie a little strange. I mean, Tony Abbott always seemed a little bit… different. Scottie always just struck me as boring. You know, the sort of uncle who’ll tell you that by your age he’d managed to save enough for the sort of livestyle that he’ll never enjoy because he’ll never stop accumulating just enough money to make him irritating but never enough to actually stop worrying that having a coffee at a local cafe will cost too much.
However, it was last night when I wanted to send a friend the video of our beloved leader comparing the defence forces to a curry that he began to remind me of Harold Holt after the final scuba dive. You know that he’s there somewhere, but you’re pretty sure the oxygen isn’t getting to the brain.
Anyway the search “Scott Morrison curry” produced more search results than I needed. I mean one wouldn’t have thought that one would get several pages of results – all including a reference to our PM and curry. Try it.
Ok, I’ve decided that I’m at an age when I should grow up and vote for the LNP out of naked self-interest. I should acknowledge the superior economic management that enables successive Liberal Treasurers to suck more money from us than they give back in services. All right, I admit they haven’t done that lately because the most recent one is simply saying we’ll do that with the first one after the election and you can trust us, because the only reason we haven’t done it before is that we’ve been paying off Labor’s debt by doubling it.
(Ok, before someone gets into an argument about Modern Monetary Theory with people who have no understanding of money, I know that government debt and the Budget surplus/deficit thing have almost nothing to do with each other, but if we go down the economic path, most of us will get confused. Economics is confusing. Look at the Liberals’ take on Labor’s negative gearing policy. It will drive up rents and reduce the value of properties so before too much longer we’ll be paying $10,000 a day in rent and houses will only cost $100,000 to buy… Nobody will want to buy one, of course, because the dangerous solar panels will make them liable to burn down if you own it, but not if you rent it.)
Yeah, can’t wait to get that adulting thing going.
