And so is this Federal one from @ABCnews:
If the political party puppets that fill our current parliamentary benches as zombie MPs can’t do a proper job of representing us, comfortably, during normal working hours, we should sack them and nominate and elect non-political party people, genuine MPs, who can.
The real structural problem is that 98% of our MPs are lawyers, who spend 90% of their time at the beck and call of senior bureaucrats (who are 99% lawyers), for example passing 100 plus new pieces of legislation every year that give bureaucrats (lawyers) and law men (judges, police and lawyers) 100s of more controls over us ordinary citizens.
So when was it decided that Australia (and much of the Western, Govt debt-ridden, world) would be a lawyers’ paradise, a #lawyerocracy?
And when will electors start to seek out and support and elect real MPs to counter the lawyer stranglehold on our country, to defend the people from control hungry unelected bureaucracy and judiciary instead of being slaves to the bureaucrats and judiciary who head up Australia’s hereditary lawyer class ruling elite, and begin the slow march back towards democracy, human rights and the rule of law?
Australia’s zombie parliaments, (and one could add, the zombie economies and our zombie legal systems that they have shaped in their image) are the strange and toxic fruits grown from the crippled and twisted branches and roots of our woefully corrupt and crippled constitutional political and legal framework – our great constitutional swindles.
Our political history of Australia, from 1778 and the “terra nullus” of British invasion, through the1900′s farce of federation, the betrayal of the Whitlam dismissal of 1975, the sabotaged republican referendum of 1999, and the betrayal of the Rudd dismissal of 2010 – ours is a tragic and recurrent history of political corruption, tyranny and tragedy.
Until electors see the problem and start to act responsibly and constructively by seeking, supporting and electing genuine parliamentary representatives (non-lawyer class, non-zombies who can then combine in sufficient numbers to begin the long-haul structural repairs to the electoral system, the parliament, the bureaucracy and the courts), Australia will remain a nation of 1st class potential, ruled by a 4th generation of 5th rate lawyers who misuse and abuse (and steal) our luck.
