A Judas, not a Bonhoeffer, in the Lodge

Cutting the rebate for cataracts almost in half, the KRudd government has shown its teeth, dishonesty, and unfitness to govern, falsely advertising itself as a party of the Centre Left while using neo-liberal arguments.
"The Federal Government had tried to cut the rebate by even more, saying this would force overcharging doctors to reduce their prices."
Really? Then why fund the private health insurers?
The only rule of KRudd’s regime is that the fat cats get the cream, while yes-men all will let this pass to get rewards from licking arse.
Honest ALP members must be feeling like they went out for a party, got a bit drunk, came home with what seemed like an attractive woman, and then got bent over and the deceit of the Howard-in-Drag rammed home in the most painful way possible.
Unless the ALP true believers take KRudd out the back immediately and pull his political entrails out as a lesson to all future traitors, the whole party is tainted, and no ALP member will ever get my vote unless they come out in the next week and publically call for KRudd’s head on a pike.
Lefty me is now of the firm opinion that we’d all be better off if Howard had won the last election.
At least if Howard had won the last election the intellectual elite wouldn’t have been lulled into a false sense of security, and wouldn’t be letting all the neo-Howard policies be implemented without protest, simply because those policies are coming from a party that calls itself the ALP.
Seriously, today’s ALP has as much right to call itself that, as a duck has of calling itself a dinosaur: sure, the duck might have had dinosaur ancestors, but now it’s a completely different beast.
Lucius Junius Brutus has overthrown the Tarquins for raping Lucretia, and instead of creating a republic, installed himself as Consul with regal power, raped every man, woman and child in Rome, to the cheers of all the republicans, hoping for scraps from the table.

And the people will accept those who most convincingly promise sated quests for empty affluence.
