On Australian Politicians

On Australian Politicians, by Grace Collier.

To be honest with you, the close observation of politics and politicians can be an unpleasant pastime. This is purely because of the low calibre of individuals involved and their unimpressive antics and idiotic policy propositions …

Sometimes, it really appears our government is determined to prevent the creation of wealth. They don’t want people to end up on the old age pension, but they also don’t want people to be too rich, either. Being too rich, in this country, appears to be a hideous, vile sin, and it must be prevented at all costs. Our current crop of politicians seem on a constant, desperate hunt for any undiscovered enclaves of wealth so they can confiscate as much of it as they possibly can while demonising the people who created it.
