Cometh The Hour Cometh not The Man
I don’t know whether you have noticed but the job performance of politicians worldwide is falling at a faster rate than the global economic outlook.
Clive however was such an unmitigated disaster however that it’s almost a relief to return to politics as usual under Malcolm and Bill. Mind you if the next prime minister turns out to be no better than the previous five even Pauline Hanson could become next in line.
After undertaking an in-depth study into the job standards of leading politicians I have reached a number of conclusions likely to confirm all your worst fears.
The underlying problem is that so many MPs are ex-union officials who have never done a day’s work in their lives or ex-lawyers who have never done a day’s work at under $500 an hour.
Ex-union officials’ hate for business and ex-lawyers’ hate for unions are so all-consuming that they have so little time to spare to further the interests of their constituents which have already taken a back seat to the interests of the Whips and the party factions.
Politicians are essentially perceived by the public as promise-breaking, expense fiddling, truth bending hypocrites who would sell their soul to the Safe Schools Programme for another three years in parliament.
Having identified the problem the only thing I know for certain about the solution is that it’s not either Malcolm or Bill.
What is certain however is that if Australia doesn’t soon find a PM who can stay in the job for a couple of terms then it is inevitable the Son of Trump will start warming up in the bullpen.
Furthermore if Bill becomes the sixth Aussie PM in six years the Son of Trump would become the seventh in seven and the impact on the country would be so calamitous that even the unions would breathe a sigh of relief if Tony came back to be the eighth in eight.
