I am sure we all have seen what seemed to be very much like a soap opera play out in Parliament over the past 3 years.
Ever since Kevin Rudd was removed from office as PM, oh what drama it has been. At least in the West, we do not knife people with a real knife. However, sometimes a knife called the tongue can be much more painful and the wounds can fester into a place of offence, bitterness and anger.
Well, this is what our nation has unfortunately experienced over the past 3 years and the worst of it all is that what we have all witnessed is a real life drama (not unlike a TV series such as “Days of our Lives”) played out on TV between Julia Gillard and Kevin Rudd.
Well, many say that it is now finally over. Really?? I don’t think so.
The main players are still on stage, including Bill Shorten and Kevin Rudd. Just hold it, there very well could be two more actors joining the drama, Tony Abbott and Malcolm Turnbull.
A while ago in 2007 we had John Howard and Peter Costello. At least, these two men had more morals and character. While it too was a drama, the series was very short lived as the actors were clever enough to withdraw from the stage quickly.
What concerns me most is the next generation. I have been talking to many young people who comment that they are completely put off from going into politics and they are totally disgusted with what has been going on, and rightfully so. One needs to ask, when are these politicians going to start showing some respect for each other and put the nation before their personal ambitions and agendas?
Soon there will be an election, in Aug, Sep, Oct or Nov???? Who knows whether these leaders are thinking of the country or themselves once again? While this drama continues, small time business owners are the worst affected and many have started to shut down. Do the politicians care about their loss and pain? They are causing so much uncertainty that people do not want to invest in new businesses when an election is announced with an 8 month lead time.
Now for the million dollar question! If Tony Abbott wins at this coming election, will he lead Australia for the next three years?? Or will he be knifed in the back by Malcolm Turnbull??? If Rudd wins this election, will Bill Shorten knife him?? One thing is for sure. It is time for the old guard to be changed. What we all don’t want is another three years of blood spilling, where the nation suffers because of bad leaders.
If you don’t want the drama in Parliament to continue beyond this election, you can make your voice known by voting #1 Rise Up Australia Party and we assure you that we will fight to keep Australia Australian. We will be your voice in Parliament and we will do our best to bring back respect and honour into Parliament.
Give us a chance and help us get the balance of power in the Senate, and you could very well see the back of the Greens. A close contest in elections is good for the country, as absolute power corrupts absolutely with politicians doing whatever they want to do because they have the majority.
If you vote Rise Up Australia Party, we will bring a good balance in Federal Parliament and steer the ship back in the right direction.
