Proto, crypto, neo and orthodox Marxists; Catholics and Freemasons; conservatives and old time lefties - please sign my guestbook and let me know what you will.
Latter sippers; lycra-wearers and the chattering classes - go take a Bex, make a nice cup of tea, watch Four Corners or Q&A and have a nice lie down.

Australia can survive - thaty is.,it will continue to exist as a nation - four years of Shoprten; Australian conservatism cannot survive four years of Turnbull. He knew he would split the Liberal Party, amputating its conservative wing, and did so wantonly.
More power to your pen, John!
Smokey you are getting better with age just like a good red wine. your latest was a real ball tearer. just keep them coming.
Re: Queensland's elitist judiciary. Every day I become ever increasingly convinced that while they may regard themselves learned in the law - wisdom which should complement it is sadly lacking.
Every democratic country deserves the government they elect.
As a lycra wearing conservative I fall between your groups but nevertheless identify with you in general, but I adopt a more pragmatic approach: The impediment to reform are the voters who
now believe they can have their cake and eat it too..
It's the easiest way out in the short term and the costliest way out in the long term.
God help us all.

Nothing like good old optimism John. All that is now rotten and ingrained in the selfish machinations of our politicians - and that is regardless of party affiliation - would require nothing less than a revolution to even get them started on thinking they

The Australian community is in for a world of long overdue pain. It is wholly its own fault for which I have nil sympathy.

Thanks indeed for the comment. I do agree that we badly need to 'clean out the swamp'. Trump certainly stirred those fetid waters.

I agree with the general thrust of your comments but the Australian community believes the governments can deliver without pain and there will be a lot of pain up ahead.

Nice job on the essay John, but regardless of his positions, Dutton is too much a cretin of the past, he also looks like the walking dead. We don't need more career politicians, we need a Trump.
