The way forward for the Hodgman Government is to drive using the rear vision mirror: revive the forestry wars, weaken gun control, deregulate, more mates’ deals, ban peaceful demonstrations, keep your policies secret, open slather for pokies, offer government for sale ... after all he himself said: “when corporate or other interests hand over cash to a political party they are entitled to expect that it will act in their interests.”
In Tasmania in March 2018, a government of stooges sold democracy to its moneyed buyers, and for its own selfish gain.
” What is a stooge? A stooge is a person who is forced or paid by someone in authority to do an unpleasant or secret job ... “
“You can spot a stooge at events where free food is served. Stooges often attempt to think up scams for scoring free money ... “
Gettysburg Address definition ..
A speech delivered by Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War. Lincoln was speaking at the dedication of a soldiers’ cemetery at the site of the Battle of Gettysburg. The opening and closing lines are particularly memorable: “Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal… (We must) be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us - that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion - that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom; and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the Earth.”
Tasmania’s Liberal government of paid stooges has deceitfully betrayed us, and so the notion of government of the people, by the people, for the people is now draped in cobwebs while entombed in this backward island’s mausoleum of history.
There’s not much of a market for old cobwebs, but if the Liberals and their ilk could make a buck by selling them to the devil himself they would surely go for it.
John and Peter ... beautifully put.
