Lets have some Radical Change #auspol

The longer I am exposed to the antics of our politicians the more I am convinced we need radical change.

The Coalition are clearly operating from the Republican Party play book - 20th Century version - their behaviour is a severe embarrasssment to our nation. Everyone watching them knows it - but no-one internally has the guts to move them on.

The only reason they are still talking crap is because they think their rusted on's won't notice.

Because if they did then they would vote for a blue fence post instead. And it would probably deliver much better value.

Surely someone in the blue team understands the damage they are doing? When the monk and his crew eventually get the flick then it will take a decade to repair their damage.

Malcolm - you won't want that problem so now is the time to stand up. Or pass the baton and join Kevin on the backbench.

The BS that is spewing forth from the Coalition front bench reminds me of my childhood visits to the circus - when I was 8 or 9. Yes Virginia it is that bad. I just can't remember a less competent frontbench team in my lifetime and I am now over 60. This mob are in the bottom quartile - no question. Perhaps even the bottom 10%.

Even scarier is the way our television and news media are behaving - it's friggin disgusting. The only reason they get away with it is because said rusted on's keep buying the Murdoch mush and watching free to air TV. The rusted on habit is to - consume rubbish media and vote for the Coalition - because they don't know anything else. And their thinking organ is now mostly redundant.

The only way to fix this is to stop them from voting - it's too late for anything else. Sorry Granddad but if you can't sort wheat from chaff then our society will need to do it for you.

BTW - the Fairfax broadsheets do have moments of brilliance - but that is tempered by the absolute crap that now infects the AFR.

I was in Adelaide this morning watching a couple of gerries paw the Advertiser. Old conservatives with nothing else to do but spend their days reading Murdoch mush and watching television. This problem is not something we can fix now - it should have been dealt with 30 or 40 years ago.

The Conservatives designed the system that way. And the Labor party still haven't worked it out.

Which is why we need a radical solution.
