WE SHOULD DITCH THE PRIMA DONNAS
It was refreshing to see John Anderson (former Member of Parliament) speaking on Sky News recently.
Now if only we had people of his calibre running the show here our nation wouldn't be in the mess it is now.
Bravo to Barnaby Joyce who has returned "to the fray" - a no nonsense man.
If twas pleasing to watch him in action, quick witted, a refreshing change.
He too will be an asset to our otherwise half-dead performance that needs to seriously get its act together and stop pussyfooting around.
We need real men in control like Mark Latham and Cory Bernardi.
There ought to be some vacancy for some of the old stalwarts like John Anderson.
Bringing back Bronwyn Bishop whose wisdom surpasses that of other hangers-on who are there but contribute nothing of any real substance.
Its time to rid our parliament of those who are completely useless and whose major concerns do not embrace the real issues of concern but rather peddle insignificant "causes" while our nation goes to the wall financially, morally and without any real sense of purpose.
The people tire of the inefficiency of those politicians who survive like prima donnas doing nothing of any real measure that permeates but rather destroy the people's confidence.
Time to off-load the baggage, get a spurt on and stop bossing the Aussie people around by overreaching their personal authority to run their own lives.

'CAN WE SEE THE ADVICE WHICH JUSTIFIES LOCKDOWNS?'
Australians have been told by various politicians and bureaucrats that the COVID-19-Delta restrictions and compulsions recently placed upon us are based on "best medical advice".
This medical advice has not been made public, and because multiple requests for this advice have been ignored, it appears that it actually isn't available for the public.
While massive restrictions, compulsions and invasions of privacy are being placed on Australians, the public appears to be not allowed to see the research, reports and other evidence the various governments are using to justify their actions.
Actual publicly available research in other countries shows that neither the application of lock-downs or masks altered the number of COVID-19 related cases or deaths in these countries.
The "best medical advice" that various politicians are using to justify their actions should be made public so that Australians can see why this advice is more credible than the research that shows their actions are actually not credible.
If the "best medical advice" will not be provided, then Australians should realize that we have simply been misled into one of the most intrusive and oppressive societies in history, and then realize that we need to get out of it.
