As I suggested the other day when I reblogged Tanimo’s post there is a very distinctive lack in the sense of humour when it comes to our friends from the left. A very obvious lack of any ability to see the humour in their own tendency to take themselves too seriously. Personally I am listening to my own internal laugh track when it comes to our current federal government and trying to convince myself that what we are seeing coming out of Canberra is in fact an elaborate satire from the same author who gave us “Yes minister” and “Yes Prime Minister”. To think that the farce that is the Labor government is not a work of satire is almost too awful to contemplate, yet contemplate it we must:
What saddens me about this sort of thing is that its a bribe that won’t deliver and its totally at odds with the “tough budget” claims from Swan. Ah well at least the parents of children who get this sugar hit will get better flat screens for less as the prices are much lower now than they were when Rudd financed so many Plasmas in his first panicked response to the GFC.
All the world is a stage, and Gillard and Swan are the comedy act that is playing like a tragedy train wreck, sadly for their fans the chances of their style of act getting top billing again any time soon is ever diminishing.
