Today’s Guest Poster is the magnificent Puffy The Magic Dragon, who – as always – has come up with a topic guaranteed to put fire in the belly (and even out of the mouth). Thank you so much, Puffy.
Also, I apologise for my lack of activity for the past few weeks. I am sure you all understand.
Hats off to Mr Steve Georganas MP, Federal Member for Hindmarsh, House of Reps. ALP.
Steve Geoganas, a thoroughly good bloke, recently attached a questionaire to his newsletter, for people in his electorate, asking about issues and concerns they may have.
As well as keeping in touch with his electorate and proactively seeking their input, his survey finished with an interesting question that I have not seen before in such an exercise.
‘What would you do if you were Prime Minister for one day.’
What an intriguing thought. What would I do?
- Close Manus Island and Nauru camps and order repatriation to Australia of the people interned there.
- Establish royal commissions into the banks, and another into our involvement into the Iraq WMD war. And Children Overboard, and the rest of that can of maggots. Chuck one in for political donations too, while we are at it.
- Stop the Adani coalmine.
Because I will get to work early on my day, it will only be morning tea-time.
- I will have plenty of time to fix the NBN fiasco, and then after lunch with Indigenous people’s representatives to nut out a plan to really address inequities, roll my sleeves up for a late nighter.
There is so much more.
- Also, I would implement the ALP Animal Welfare plan, and designate theft of pets as an act of national harm, punishable by ten years of cleaning up doggy doo doo.
What would you do?
