At last the deed has been done and apologies made for the stolen generation to the indigenous people of Australia. In my opinion it was by and large what most Australians wanted and apart from whatever occurs in the future regarding compensation etc Im sure the nation as a whole is happy with the days proceedings that took place in the nations parliament. Everyone that is except from some of our polititians that showed their quality or lack of it to the nation on television. I find it difficult to understand why they couldnt accept “the apology” when you think of what is happening to Australia as a whole. Australia is now a multicultural country, that goes without saying, laws have been changed and modified to accomodate the many different religions and customs of new migrants that come to these shores. The acceptance of some of the law changes in schools churches and the courts have often created much debate, anger and argument. But at the end of the day Australians have accepted the new changes to their daily lives. SO, in view of the fact that we have accepted those changes and like it or not are prepared to live with them. I ask the question, what right does a person like Wilson Tuckey and any other of his kind find it difficult to accept the fact that this apology to the tradition owners of this country and the terrible mistreatment they endured. The shame of this is that this man has been part of a government that affected our lives over the past eleven and a half years and is now showing by his/their attitudes their hatred of of the true Australian. They are a disgrace to our nation and our parliament and the sooner they go the better. Follow their old leader and get right out of the public arena…………….Just Piss Off
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.
