Australia goes down the toilet! 23-Aug-2010 At 6:50:50 AM Phil Box
To Neil and Gareth in particular and others generally.

That post was not aimed at anyone in particular thus not a personal attack. It would be very wrong of me to single out a particular person and pointedly call them out in the same manner as my post. Of course a politician is fair game in a politics thread.

I think most people have totally missed my point in that post as well. My point is more that politicians and greens in particular have a hidden agenda whilst campaigning and as soon as the votes are cast they come out and reveal their real agenda. Let us see what you (the pollies) represent during the campaign.

The first thing I saw on election night was a gay green polly coming out on national TV declaring that marriage in Oz was discriminatory because gays couldn't become married.

That is something that did not get an airing at all during the campaign. I did not hear one greens candidate make any mention of that as an election issue and yet now it is a big hot button item.

The Australian people have not been given a fair chance to debate that issue and yet now we have a party that will hold the balance of power and has the chance now to push through an extremely divisive issue without bringing the Oz people along for the ride. There will be no ownership if this issue gets up.

We need this debate and frankly I enjoy being part of a controversial issue debate.

Why shoot the messenger.
