  •  An international illness which conservatives, (4+ / 0-)

    austerity for the poor advocates, have embraced.

    Australia a victim of the same anti-government measures in order to give the party in charge nothing to hang their hat on as a success. Doesn't matter who it hurts as long as they are stopped from doing anything effective in order that they look bad.

    Australia dodged the worst of the GFC being governed by a party not annointed by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp, the conservative propaganda machine, with us coming out at the other end as the country with an economy to be envied.
    In times past effective economic managers was the metric by which governments were measured, and yet our Prime Minister was attacked relentlessly eventually being ousted in a coup as a result of the stonewalling conservative opposition and media feeding frenzy created by News Corp.

    We live in a world where facts and reality no longer matter in government, and the political party able to gin up the most artificial hate based on trivialities or untruths, now seems never to be held accountable for this.
