The lucky stroke crippled me and gave me a new life. Now I'm just unbelievably good looking and modest. Always turn a little to the left.

A FAIR GO JUST DIED IN AUSTRALIA!
THE LAND OF A FAIR GO?
GOING, GOING, GONE!
We all would like to live in a world where civil society runs on trust.
A world where our fellow citizens appreciate the value of mutual respect, kindness and compassion, it is care and concern that distinguish us from third world countries.
Trust is not just something between two people, it starts at the top. The integrity of our institutions, political, legal and commercial.
Trust in our leaders, above all is crucial, whether agree with them or not we still look to them for examples of probity,loyalty, charity and above all integrity.
This Australia I am writing about, its not Nigeria, can you believe what we are seeing, a government that promised us open honest government has barred the press from carrying out investigative journalism and now has dismissed any remnant of honesty.
Why are we Australians let down so badly by our leaders, we see corruption, the breaking of promises and straight out lying to attain power.
We are let down by them more so by them showing a heartlessness for the aged and sick.
Then we have the stupid remarks, such as "It's only the cost of two beers, Only two coffees", this is from a treasurer who smokes cigars worth much, much more.
Do these uncaring politicians have any idea of how heartless this sound to someone who can't afford a coffee or a beer now.
Soon they are going to be asked to pay more health care and more for prescriptions, this is from pension that is to be reduced by tying it to a new base, the CPI which is lower.
This is not the economics; it’s meanness it shows us that this government doesn't care about the sick and the elderly.
