In defiance of all logic the leaders of Oz are destroying the environment, ruining the economy and crippling the poor to further enrich the big end of town (gross capitalists). Why would they do this? Why would they damage their own country to help the greedy multinationals to make even more fortunes at the expense of the entire planet?
The answer is deceptively simple. “Legal corruption.” Unless they are so moronic as to believe their own lies, Tony Abbott and most prominent politicians surely must have something to gain out of apparent stupidity. They probably expect to be substantially rewarded once they have left politics.
Former PM Bob Hawke set the example on this process. After crying on TV over the Tienamin Square massacres Bob Hawke instantly granted permanent residence to 20,000 Chinese students who were then in Australia. With the family reunion laws this resulted in over 300,000 extra immigrants over a ten year period.
Strangely enough, after he left politics, Bob Hawke became a highly paid consultant for this same Chinese government that murdered its own people. Recently he attended an aboriginal event in the north of the nation and campaigned for the allowing of the dumping of Chinese nuclear waste in parts of those lands.
Perhaps there was even some truth to Clive Palmer’s recent tirade against the Chinese government.
The nasty thing about this type of “corruption” is that it is perfectly legal. After they have left politics and then hit the bonanza the recipients of these huge sinecures or handouts, cannot be charged with anything!
So what do Tony Abbott, Joe Hockey and the rest of their gang expect to receive when they retire from politics, at the expense of the rest of us and the planet?
