Farewell Bob Brown

Well, Bob Brown has resigned from politics, a man who was a (relatively) moderate face of a radical party. Yes, I said moderate. Compared to ‘former’ communist Lee Rhiannon, BDS-supporter Fiona Byrne and the assorted range of anti-capitalists and Marxists, we may in fact start to miss ol’ Bob.

We will remember Senator Brown as a man of the people, 7 billion people that is. Ah, the fond memories we shall hold of Bob’s address to the universe and his wise pleas to unite the world under one almighty government. He may have lost his chance at becoming Prime Minister, but he is certainly still in the running for President/Overlord/Emperor/King of the World.

Bob was very used to getting his way, and when he didn’t get it, he’d sound a bit like a tantrum-throwing child. I guess we spoiled him when we gave him unprecedented power in the lower house of parliament. The little scamp.

There were times when some of the mean kids would say nasty things about Bob, but he took it in his stride. “Sticks and stones”, he would say. Oh wait, no he didn’t. Actually, he said something about the “hate media“, didn’t he? Well, anyway, to his credit he did stand up for himself. After asking Ms. Gillard nicely, he got his media enquiry and now we’re all better off because of it. The Greens are better off because now Chris Uhlmann won’t ask stupid questions, and Chris Uhlmann will be better off because he will learn not to ask stupid questions. And there will be no more mean songs from Ray Hadley. It’s win-win.

So long, Bob Brown. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

About Climate Nonconformist

Hi, I'm the climatenonconformist (not my real name), and I am a global warming skeptic, among the few in generation Y. With Australia facing the prospect of a carbon tax, we need to be asking the simple question; where is the evidence that our emissions are causing any dangerous warming?

    Poor ol’ Bob just can’t help contradicting himself, no matter the subject – “sad to leave, but happy to go”, he said!

    There IS A GOD ! Hallelujah ! If Brown was the moderate face then this despicable anti-Australian socialist party will now be laid bare before us.

    I dunno why Bobby decided to romanticise his retirement by alluding to his boyfriend patting him on the ar$e and then making the decision. Maybe a head start at writing romantic novels..? Ech..
