WHAT and who have we be­come when mil­lions of poor starv­ing peo­ple are liv­ing in fear and dy­ing in the mud?

On our Aus­tralian home-front peo­ple are liv­ing in agony and dy­ing for lack of hos­pi­tal/sur­gi­cal treat­ment in a health sys­tem which our gov­ern­ments have al­lowed to go broke. And we let our present Gov­ern­ment spend $122 mil­lion to pur­sue a project which will give no de­fin­i­tive res­o­lu­tion to a mat­ter of law.

They have ab­solved their re­spon­si­bil­ity.

Politi­cians, of all per­sua­sion, have been elected to ap­ply due dili­gence and de­ci­sion-mak­ing in their rep­re­sen­ta­tion of our com­mu­nity. We all know this is an ab­so­lute waste of pub­lic mon­eys.

A few good peo­ple did at­tempt to have this ir­re­spon­si­ble pur­suit banned, but as a so­ci­ety we are all re­spon­si­ble for al­low­ing this to hap­pen, no mat­ter which way we would vote.
