Meeting my political match in Tokyo

Who would have thought that an anti-whaling, Greens surfing-Senator from Tasmania would meet a brother-in-arms in Tokyo? I have travelled to Japan to lobby politicians and speak with the Japanese people about the slaughter of whales in the Southern Ocean.

I addressed the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan in Tokyo about the concerns of the Australian people about whaling in the Southern Ocean.

    If you can imagine a former Liberal Party member and banker becoming a Green’s senator you should have no problems imagining a Japanese person having concerns about another species or the environment in general.

    But try to imagine TGC departing from the Lib party line.

    WW will probably claim he offset the environmental ‘damage’ his trip has done by some sort of ‘off-set and there’s now another’green tree in Brooklyn’
    Of course!

    That’s right #2 get rid of the greens, lib,lab and every other political party, by handing power directly to the people online. They would make the decision as to what is to be done about whaling and I’m pretty sure, they would support arresting jap and any other boats whaling and fishing in the southern ocean.

    It’s our money politicians are wasting, giving it to their corporate mates and abusing the privileges they take for themselves, without our consent, or in most cases knowledge.

    It’s not their money, so far they have done nothing but feather their own nests, give away our assets and take huge amounts of what they call corporate donations.

    They use our money to build toll roads and other assets, then give them away to their corporate ilk. We continue paying for the next century in tolls, charges and end up paying the unnecessary bills when their mates walk away with the profits.

    The greens back them all the way, they hope it will get them some piddling useless do gooders cause, they are pushing. Bugger the rest of us, or the future.

    They have no workable policies for the environment of any use, nor any other policies of worth to the majority and a viable future.

    The greens want to flood the country with ideological misfits, hell bent on taking over and creating mayhem, by trying to destroy our ways of life.

    So how’s the greens approach working for the future now, they failed miserably when in cahoots with useless labor here, everything they did was a disaster.

    The greens are losing their backing, everyone can see they are no different to all the other parties. Just useless ideologues, that grabbed the environmental movement purely because they thought it would get them into power and satisfy their psychopathic egos, which is all they appear to care about.

    The only real greens, were Brown and Putt, who had scruples and an honest approach. The crazy lot now calling themselves the greens, are elitist wankers. With not one usable brain cell between them.

    I’m all about providing Tas with a real future, unlike our political parties and system. Certainly not supporting a primitive, elitist system, that’s destroying the future as fast they possible can.

    Been there done that, time to move on politically, or we all go down with the political sinking ship.

    So……getting rid of our Green politicians will end the annual Japanese whale slaughter-fest.

    Getting rid of the only people who publicly voice their Green opposition to whaling is the only way to stop the whaling.

    Getting rid of the only people who put their money where their mouths are and attempt to really do something about is the only way to stop the whaling.

    Getting rid of the only people who have the courage and commitment to put their careers, their private lives and their personal safety on hold to run for public office as a Green is the only way to stop the whaling.

    Brilliant!

    Why didn’t anyone think of this before?

    Stop the armchair wailing
    .
    Do something deep.

    Another useless waste of tax payers money by a complete waste of space and one may note the USA corporate website he uses, not an Aus one.

    If we want to stop whaling, you go and arrest the Jap ships, remove their crews and scrap the ships to pay for costs of policing the southern ocean. Then you charge the crews for the cost of their return to Japan.

    Not only are our politicians useless, they are gutless and only in power to enhance themselves and their vested interests.

    You can tell the quality of a politician by what they put out as useful policy approaches. Wushy Wilson so far has contributed nothing of worth to improve our societies and future. Just like his elitist party of empty heads, an expensive waste of space.

    The sooner we get rid of these fools the quicker we can stop whaling in the southern hemisphere and to do that, if we have to, by resorting to force.

    Tell the Japs, or any and everyone else from the northern hemisphere, if they fish in the southern ocean they will be arrested.

    Otherwise it will not only be whales that suffer, but we will end up with no fish in the world’s oceans and if it gets to that stage life on earth will be in deep trouble.
