Trusty Labor

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

When announcing the election date the on-off-on Prime Minister Rudd, among many other amusing things, said: This election will be about who the Australian people trust to lead them…

 You can trust Labor to attempt to deceive you even in simple matters. For example, their deceptive behaviour is so ingrained in them that the Labor candidates use decades old pictures of themselves:


Labor candidate Alannah MacTiernan now and then. Maskirovka even Generalissimo Stalin could approve.


 Another Labor candidate to be trusted, Di Smith now and then:


That pathetic little man Rudd, the Prime Minister pro tem, on his Griffith electorate posters also seems to be using a pictures of himself when he was young, skinny and famous – the opposite of what he is now. Nothing new in Labor unwilling to show its true face, of course. For Australian Labor Party all seems to be fair in hate and class war…

 UPDATE: Reformed Labor

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.

    Let’s hope we shall not see them for at least six years. They’ll be even younger then.
