THE TOP JOB AT THE UN

I am sad that we see it essential to actually think it is necessary for Australia to have someone in the running for the Top job at the UN.



Helen Clark for me, so lets support her for the job.

Nick Xenephon

I interviewed NicK Xenophon before the election.

It was interesting to listen back after the election.



Broken Promises

Our newest political commentator Peta Credlin is clearly still suffering a severe case of sour grapes.

The continued attack on Prime Minister Turnbull can only be seen as misuse of journalistic power in my humble opinion. As Tony Abbott's Chief of Staff, the only Chief of Staff I can remember sitting in the House alongside her boss, the power she seems to have been able to wield as non-elected employee, I find quite terrifying.

The election promises broken by Abbott, the "Captain's Decisions", created a sense of no trust from the electorate. Malcolm Turnbull and the Party "brains trust" completely underestimated that shift and the time and methodology of regaining the faith of the Australian Electorate. They simply were not listening and the arrogance displayed in taking us to a Double Dissolution election reprehensible.

Medicare, it did become an issue, not because of a really stupid SMS campaign (I never got one), but because of the "perceived" continued attack on the little guy and the aged.

The submarines in SA pretty much wrecked the Liberal Party and the incredible effort of Christopher Pyne and others behind the scenes is the only reason it recovered at all.

Peta Credlin, Politicians generally; stop with this selfish rhetoric, engage with and listen to the people you represent and serve with an open heart and mission to look after the people you represent. All we are seeing is a group of Politicians crying over the disaster that is their personal self serving goals and ambitions.

Show us genuine leadership for Australia in it's entirety and yeah even if that means you have to sell us some tough love.

When?

1. When will a leader stand up and say "Australia I hear you"

2. When will a leader stand up and apologise for getting too far away from us the people of Australia.

3. When will they realise that whistle stop thought bubble policy announcements "if elected we will promise" is now understood to be nothing but a wicked old man trying to lure the kiddies to the darkness.

4. When will we ever hear a properly made plan that removes the bias to one selfish centre of influence or another, that delivers a plan for the common good.

5. All of you stop your mindless caterwauling, your pathetic attempts of needing to blame someone else. Stand up and take some responsibility for your own failure to serve this Nation, openly, honestly and with an even hand.

For God's sake lead.

Flabbergasted!

We have endured "Captain's Decisions", threats to health, education and jobs, we have been denied the ability to love as we want, we take no consideration that we are polluting our atmosphere and environment. 

Today, Australia has demonstrated that we do not think that either of the major parties can deliver. Fifty percent have said they have no faith in one side and fifty percent have said they have no faith in the other. 

Tonight they each still pontificate and point aimlessly at the other guy in bewilderment. For God sake will a real leader stand up and give us faith in the strength and desire to defend and protect the basic elements of our lives.

Until then we can but ever see a system hopelessly divided.

The Fifty Fifty Vote

Until the Politicians of this Country actually listen to the people, rather than the faceless bureaucrats, unless we can see a plan and the strength of leadership to deliver it, then we shall face this fifty fifty nightmare over and over again. 

Australians are demanding that our Government looks after us first and the rest of the World second. We shall continue to have a fifty fifty vote and listening to the commentators pontificating on how dumb the electorate are, versus how pathetic our leadership is. 

It is not the people at fault here, it is the pathetic pontification of people whom believe they are our leaders.

Seriously disappointed in the lack of reality I am hearing across all of the Politicians and Commentators. Get out here and talk to the people of Australia. Make a clear plan and sell its benefits to the electorate instead of this "thought bubble policy making" experience we are enduring.
