So here we go again the seach for a 1000 people that can see into the future. A group with the foresight into the year 2020 to recommend how things should be I suppose. I suppose if I was truly on the ball I would have a thousand crystal balls made and offer them for sale to these selected smarties. I can remember when I was on a goverment board in the eighties when one of the members was selected to sit on the 2010 committee and now in 2008 we all know what good they done. School teachers and taxi drivers going on strike this week and hospitals and other services in turmoil and this is Western Australia the richest of the states. So what does it all mean, it means nothing, nothing more than a smokescreen that everything is being taken care of for the future. None of those selected people can predict next week let alone 2020 so whats the point. If Kate Blanchett had known what was going to happen at the oscars she wouldnt have bothered to go there. If Tim Fisher could have seen the future he d still be in politics, even he would shine amongst this opposition. and the rest, well say no more. Its a bloody waste of time money and effort. So these Wizards can get out their crystal balls and look into the future but they dont and wont convince me they are any better qualified than any person you may stop in the street. I personally have a lot of respect for the present Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and I genuinely think he is trying to get the country going but I think this 2020 stuff is a wrong call………………………..
At last a federal polititian comes up with a good idea.
It now seems in the interests of the stolen generation and the awful things that occured in those dark days of Australias history an Australian Government is going to officially say SORRY to the indigenous families that have suffered from those past deeds.
The Federal Liberal Opposition want to know why it is suddenly a priority while other things are more pressing in their opinions. Its always been a priority all the 11 years of their governing they refused to acknowledge the neccesity to apologise for the terrible actions of the past.
Labour Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has hinted there might be a traditional aboriginal local dance group to perform on the floor of parliament on the day of the official SORRY announcement.
Liberal menber of Parliament Wilson Tuckey just stated on television he thought it was a disgrace to turn the floor of parliament into a dance floor. He then followed up with and I quote ” we might as well put a sign on the roof stating dances be held every Friday night”. Wilson thats the best thing you have ever said or suggested, at last put that building to a sensible use. Mind you, before anyone dances on the floor of parliament you will need to clean up the BULLSHIT first. Goodonya Wilson a great suggestion.
