The Year that Made Me

malcolm-turnbull-leader

 

As I listened to Attorney-General George Brandis today unconvincingly bellow (shout loud: argument weak, as the father of my children used to say) that Malcolm Turnbull will be remembered by history as one of our great prime ministers, I reflected that while it’s sadly apparent Brandis is a fool, what is most unsettling is that he apparently believes the rest of us to be even bigger fools.

Malcolm Turnbull will be remembered by history as one of the weakest men ever to hold the nation’s highest office: I’m damned if I can think of many who’ve been more ineffective, more blustering, more incompetent and more so obviously at a total loss as to what to do next. No amount of Brandis’s maniacal talking up is going to change that situation, as we saw with failed and sacked prime minister Tony Abbott, also marketed as great and in the process of leaving a powerful legacy, as his popularity hurtled off a cliff like Sidney Nolan’s upside down horse, his death cult followers clinging to the saddle, three-word slogan at the ready: Nothing to see! Nothing to see!

There’s a pattern here. Talked up one day, compost the next.

No one can make a silk purse out of a pig’s ear, least of all the meta data-challenged Attorney-General who will himself be remembered largely for his technological ignorance, his ludicrously expensive bookshelves, and his elitist notion of what constitutes art.

Turnbull’s deplorable decision to carry on with predecessor Tony Abbott’s (the one who will be remembered for giving Prince Philip a knighthood, just one of a vast array of incomprehensible acts of wilfully destructive stupidity) ill-willed and non-binding plebiscite on marriage equality demonstrates yet again that the Prime Minister is haemorrhaging principles from every orifice, in a kind of spiritual Ebola that has afflicted him since he took office.

I am unable to think of one reason why the Australian public has a “right” to vote on the right of citizens to marry or not. This is not a question of protecting the Australian public’s rights: no member of the Australian public will suffer during the enactment of same-sex marriage. Marriage equality is a human rights issue, and it is an outstanding example of heterosexual arrogance to reframe it as an issue on which “the people” are entitled to have their say. Why are they entitled to have their say? Give me one good reason.

If “the people” are “entitled” to “have their say” in plebiscites on all matters regarded by politicians as “too important” for them to simply do their jobs, why bother having a parliament at all? We’ll use their salaries and perks to fund opinion polls instead, then all they’ll need to do is pass the legislation.

The High Court ruled that parliament already has the authority it needs to simply amend the Marriage Act to include same-sex marriage, without consulting anybody. Why are we paying the idle swine to hand the job back to us?

Trust me, said George Brandis when asked if his party would honour a *yes* vote, and that’s where I fell off my chair and rolled on the floor laughing my arse off.

It used to be that when Abbott said anything good about someone we knew they’d be in the dumpster fairly soon. It’s very hard to believe that Brandis is serious about Turnbull’s strength as a leader. I don’t think he is. He’s shouting loud because his argument is, like its subject, weak. His exaggerated praise of Turnbull is turning the corner into mockery. Brandis knows what’s coming.

Some of you may be familiar with the segment on ABC broadcaster Jonathan Green’s Sunday Extra, The Year that Made Me. A guest who has achieved chooses a year from her or his life which to them was highly formative. Malcolm Turnbull could do this gig.  He could call it The Year that Made Me lose every principle I’d ever held, and left me a dusty, creaking husk of a man, and taught mean the true meaning of the phrase, laughing-stock.

Excoriate! Excoriate!

    After just barely falling over the line and losing 14 seats, Turnbull has had his first near-death experience as PM. Not surprisingly his political allies trumpet this as a triumph, his opponents within grumble and plot, his opponents without dismiss his mandate and everyone else wonders WTF.

    The great arm flapper will face a challenge within six months; will we have Abbott redux, or aren’t they that silly? The jury’s still out on that one.

      I agree with that take DQ.
      I’d add this as well.Tbull went on about the plebiscite being a mandate.Watch him from this point on.
      He will begin the custom mandate phase as he forces the nutiobs wish list policies on Australia to get the core of his destructive shite through, and to pseudo legitimise his deception and theft of the highest office in the land.Brandis will remain the chief sergeant at arms.Says a lot about the depth of his dirt file collection.What a pussy he is clinging to his diary like an oily faced pubescent hanging on to his………………..(insert suitable object)

      I can smell some sort of pseudo RC’s into Islam and climate change.
      Australia is about to enter the last straight of our greatest and fatal race to global pariah status.When the world looks in at us ,crying and laughing at the same time, they won’t see culpable politicians, they will see the cretins who voted for them.The key problem.

      I also believe the next imminent election will see more ‘units’ get voted in.There is no longer a way out of this mess I’m afraid.

    Just what she wants.
    Australia is the gold medal foot shooter .
    Expect more clandestine laws to counter her race baiting hate campaign,less freedoms, more conflict, more violence,harm and tragedy.
    All under the stellar incumbency of the party who created her and who do all they can to make her flourish.With Hanson the Libs get all they want for free,including a third party to blame.
    Hansons support will grow each day.

        Howard was the PM when Abbott sent her to jail.Where was his leadership,judgement and intellect?
        He paints all around the fact that he would have ticked off on this as a strategy and yet no-one in the media has ever questioned his role in this failure which amplified her power and massively inflated her ego and her supporter base.

          My take on this is that he’s just grossly underestimated how ridiculous his fellow human beings can actually be. Incongruous for an investment banker perhaps, but there you go.

          If I were his adviser or even [ssshhhh] his friend, I’d advise him to chuck it in, make a speech about how disappointed he is that the people of Australia obviously don’t take their voting responsibilities seriously, then move to Switzerland and spend the rest of his days supporting the pop art and classic car markets.

          …Or if he’s really so fixated on being powerful that he would continue to suffer his present state of indignity, then why not cross the floor and bring his cronies with him??

    In front of the cameras LNP politicians are ducking and weaving any comments made by Hanson.While behind the scenes flowers flow to her office,the chocolates pile up, and she has now run out of spare lunch or dinner dates to share with her eager suitors.
    In her speech she said ‘a Muslim refugee was responsible for a terrorist act’ at the Lindt cafe.In fact it was an Australian citizen (anointed under Abbott’s tenure in Howards govt) A plane arrival from Iran who sought asylum.A known nutjob.With no links to any terrorist org.
    Iran warned the govt about his character and asked for him to be returned.He was known to be mentally unstable.
    He even fired several direct warning shots (letters/emails etc) at Brandis who chose to ignore him.Security orgs also fobbed him off.Perhaps if we had Brandis’ diary we may know if that was an act of plain ignorant irresponsible stupidity, inevitably leading to two deaths and untold trauma.Or worse.
    Based on all the above and in the absence of even considering the truth,the enquiry into Lindt resembles a pile of cover up bullshit .
    It framed all the loaded questions it needed to make the public look the opposite way to the undeniable underlying truth of this monumental and dangerous incompetence.(Remember who wned called and draughted this enquiry)
    History shows (emphatically) that the public was placed in harms way under the LNP watch,despite all the loud clanging warning bells.Including the knowledge he had a weapon.

    Fast forward to today ,and not one LNP coward cares enough for the community or his children or his electorate to challenge or condemn a single Hanson claim.That makes them culpable (again) .They are aiding and abetting whatever outcome the One Nation leader delivers.Ground hog day.

        The LNP can no longer deny they are working in cahoots with One Nation.Pretty clear the greatest way and shortest route to install their two pillar policies(White straight Australia and coal forever/climate carnage, was to do a deal with the preference whisperers,get their O.N.

    That’s a thing, you know, fools see everyone else as fools, cheats think everyone else cheats, racists see everyone else getting more attention than them… plenty of room to add to this as well… I’m tapped out.

      diannart, it would be some ludicrously sentimental and extravagant operatic aria that Turnbull identifies with.

    What a fkn nerve.Hanson targeting welfare recipients .Is there a greater suck on the public purse than her fat lazy arse being paid to peddle and incite hate?

    In the end with the likely outcomes,her senate position is basically tax payer funded and sponsored terrorism.

      Can’t say I’m sorry about that. He was a mediocre minister with mediocre talent and mediocre ambitions.

        They should rename the outgoing retiring politician entitlement as the ‘golden hand-job’.

    I wonder at this also.

    There is vast amount of smoke relative to it from msm but no substance (keeps it nebulous)

    We are invited to wonder whether it’s because (a) he actually wants to spend time with his family (b) he doesn’t like someone or someone doesn’t like him (not more personalities shit whilst policy is neglected”?) (c) My theory-a spat between the ALP Right and the progressives over gay marriage (d) Hypo’s contention that he is demoralised over NBN (e) related to (b) suggested mischievously by Katharine Murphy that it is about the NSW factions undermining Shorten and his Victorian faction.

    I contrast the effective performance here by ALP Deputy Leader Plibersek interviewed at Huffpo (a big disappointment on the whole, the Oz Huffpo). to the sullen appearance of Sen. Conroy, who so soon after the election appears to be abandoning ship when he is most needed on board

    ENGORGE Christensen makes his move.

    The ship jumping of party anointed politicians needs to be scrapped in law.If you get in on a ticket,you stay there till stumps or their is a bi-election so the electorate can choose.The current rules are being exploited big time.That said the Libs plan to run a racist bigoted agenda and oppress the poor,sick,coloured and weak is now assured.
    Tell me ENGORGED Christensen did not plan this all along.All QLP LNP pollies are diarrhea stains on our nation.

        He is the triple threat of politics.A liability in govt,a liabilty in cushy retirement and a liability in his health issues he gets via lifestyle choices.If there was a god the latter one might drag out.

    You know, in the end this piece is really about control and a group of self appointed guardians rights to impose by virtual fiat their world view into the most personal aspects of others lives. Its a sort of coup d’etat of the soul and commodification of an actually very crude and violent sort.
