The Emperor’s New Clothes

This week marks one year since the Australian people voted in a bunch of uninspiring pale, stale, male pollies who bow to a fiscal god and think balancing a budget is the only important quality in a politician. Maybe we needed to have this bunch of boorish, entitled white males and their lack of vision to remind us to be compassionate, to care for one another, to give the homeless, the sick, the unemployed and refugees some of our time and our kindness. We come from a land of plenty, so just maybe these greedy men have woken us up so that we remember to dream of a world we really wish to live in and start to fight for it. Or maybe they’re just a pack of spineless puppets. Come the revolution we know who will be first to the guillotine.

    I can understand your feelings, but I think it’s going to get a lot worse before there’s any chance of us getting back to a compassionate reality.

    Would love to have seen your video, but the sign says it’s private.

    I create a swag of political cartoons, as they come to mind, and put some of them on my blog.

    This link will take you to the one I did just after the Cabinet was named with only 1 woman in it.
