Australia's mad mad maddest politician who simply shames the Nation. When Asylum Seekers were on Christmas Island Dutton said the Detention Center had a capacity to hold 800 people today it's only 300 for two weeks the man is a constant liar. It is neither a purpose-built Detention Centre nor a purpose-built Medical Centre. What else will come out of the man's purpose-built political mouth? (ODT)
It seems to me we have become American and it is amplified by our politics not just that of the LNP. While the US enables the day to day existence of DJ Trump we enable the minority of climate denialists to and coal merchants to run this country. (ODT)What we have, in essence, is a Government littered with climate denialists and two major progressive parties effectively acting as their enablers. Because as long as the Greens just lay out their wish list and Labor take refuge in their hidey-hole of inaction, the coal-smudged dinosaurs continue Australia's fossil fuel rule.
Instead of political posturing, what is needed is the collaboration of all progressive parties. In the first instance, between Labor and the Greens, and then between this partnership and the crossbench.
Those of us on the progressive side of politics need to wake up and smell the acrid smoke of the alternative.
