Few people get under my skin more than Jill Singer. Well, she’s at it again, doing what she does best.
As truck driver Peter Whytcross sees it, he is trying to make sure that democracy works. But while demonstrating they are poor losers, the protesters actually demonstrate scant regard for our democratic processes.
They refuse to support any democratically elected government – unless it’s the team they barrack for.
They don’t like this Government, so they demand a double dissolution. Sorry, but it doesn’t work that way. Big Brother and Dancing with the Stars do, but government does not and should not.
We have a government who is only in power because of a lie, and continues to betray their core values and their once most treasured voters. Now, I think that a government should be held accountable by the people when it strays as it has, picking up a stench of illegitimacy. It’s not just conservative voters who have had enough of this government. The way the polls are showing widespread discontent within the community, hardly just a bunch of whinging conservatives.
The Coalition had its opportunity to negotiate with the Greens and independents after the last federal election and Tony Abbott blew it.
Yes, Mr Abbott values his soul.
We’re getting into loony territory here.
While the protesters like painting the likes of the Greens as extremists, they seem alarmingly unconcerned that their protest organiser, Mick Pattel, is so far from the mainstream that he’s convinced talk of anthropogenic global warming is part of a global conspiracy to form one world government.
I’m unconvinced by the conspiracy theory, though am not willing to dismiss it entirely. I doubt Singer has even listened to their case, and yet seems content to mock Pattel, and indict the rest of the protesters by association.
These people are not freedom fighters. They are just whingers and bad losers with more than a touch of paranoia. It’s time they stopped kidding themselves.
Some of the protesters have come as far as Darwin, Broome and Perth, paying for the petrol out of their own pocket, such is their commitment. Even if you disagree with their cause, surely you could respect their dedication. But no, she just disparages them in her usual hate-filled manner. Maybe they should be gassed, Jill?
