…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
A casual, non-Left observer may be pleased that the Hypocrite-in-Chief, Bob Brown, the ex-Leader of the Australian Green Party finally saw the futility of his endeavours and resigned.
Unfortunately, nothing he says or had ever said can be trusted. [Red Green Brown] The Greens did badly in the Queensland State elections and there is no reason to believe that the Julia-Bob’s Carbon Tax poised to strike Australia on 1st July this year will improve the Greens’ popularity. I suspect that he was rolled by the die-hard socialist faction of his party. Dr Brown may have been too soft for them because, if only for tactical reasons, he did not publicly support the boycott of Jewish establishments. He breached the party solidarity. Further, he was overly enamoured of the sound of his own voice and became too fond of the trappings of power in Canberra’s cesspit. His face, oozing with dishonesty, may also have been a factor. Hanson-Young’s cleavage could conceivably bring more semi-educated teenagers and frustrated public servants to the struggling party. Also, more of militant anti-Semitism could be the answer in Lee Rhianon [Old Communists never die, they just turn Green], Sarah Hanson-Young and Christine Milne collective Marx-Leninist’s minds.
Another alternative is that he saw his job, i.e. to bring Australia to its knees, as done. The Carbon Tax will irretrievably damage the economy and draw Australia to the ratchet embrace of Communist China. It could be significant that Bob’s announcement came immediately after a closure of a Norwich Park coal mine in Queensland. Approximately 1,300 workers going on employment benefits in the next few weeks would represent another jewel in the crown of his life-long struggle. Even more detrimental to the democracy was his orchestration of the inquiry into non-socialist media, which culminated in the Finkelstein blueprint for muzzling any dissent. If implemented, and there is no reason to doubt Labor’s determination, any future elections in Australia would have same legitimacy as those in Zimbabwe.
Some of his fellow Earthians [Earthlings v- Gaians]might miss him, but Australians will say – Good riddance.
