TIME TO CLOSE THIS CHAPTER IN THE STORY OF DEMOCRACY

Posted in Uncategorized by thecuriousmail on June 19, 2010

It has been an interesting past week in Queensland politics.

ANNA, ANNA, LIAR! LIAR! PANTS ON FIRE!

It is a legislative requirement that the head of the CMC, Queensland’s anti-corruption

body, is consulted on the appointment of the Police Commissioner. Both Premier Bligh,

and Police Minister Roberts, said as much, and indeed said it in parliament, that he was consulted, and that they

obtained his consent to the appointment.

However, the man in question, CMC boss Moynihan, denied that he was consulted by the government on the

appointment. Oops, clearly someone is not telling the truth. Bligh and Roberts are now accused of lying to

parliament, but as the government has the numbers, they will again get away with their dishonesty and deceit.

The state government had begun to attack the CMC boss and his version of events, but even the stupid people in

power in this state realized that they were in no position to run a credibility attack against the CMC boss. So, they

changed their approach: now they say there was simply a misunderstanding in conversations with him, and we

should now all move on. Laughable! In the simple matter of asking someone what they thought of someone else

being appointed to a particular position, there was a misunderstanding??? How?! And these people are running

our state?? . . . into the ground surely, as you would think there were immensely more difficult and complex issues

to address, than one simple question which they couldn’t get right.

The question then becomes:  is the government incompetent, or are they liars?

Kids, the proof is overwhelming, they’re both!

In the happy democracies around the world people are coming to the same conclusion: governments have become

the enemy, they do not act in the interests of the people, they are compromised and incompetent, supported by an

indolent and obstructionist bureaucracy. When is a choice not a choice? Party politics. ‘Whoever you vote for, a

politician gets in’.  Yes, a pox on all their houses. . only their house is our house, and we are allowing our house

to be a place of  wrongs. There has to be a better way, but I suspect we won’t find it while someone’s making

money out of the old way.

In the meantime . .
