Politically Charged Times

Penned upon the 20th of December, 2005

White Supremacist riots in Sydney. Tsk, tsk, tsk. And I thought the provinces had distanced themselves from all that. Interesting to say what our bold and insightful leaders had to say.

Peter Costello says that Australia is afflicted by racism, and this racism is a consequence of lawlessness. A firm, disciplinary institution of law and order is required to prevent racism from springing up. This is, as I said, bold and insightful of him to point out – why, whenever I put off paying a library bill, or spray an anti-racist slogan on a public wall, or cross the road at an inappropriate crossing location, I feel a little more racist!

No, wait, that’s not true. This is clearly then more of a political move – he’s appealing to those people most likely to desire the strong hand of law: die-hard lefty anti-racists.

No, wait. I guess he’s just gone mad with syphilis.

Prime Minister John Howard disagreed, and described Australia as non-discriminatory place, though with one provision. Quoth:
Sexy words from a sexy man!

    Well said Sir *nods*

    I suspect we shall need to hold a rightist intervention later this week when you become even more racist … *woe*

    Good sir I do declare the town is over-run with racist types. Why, these gothic street-crossings are only black and thus invisible to the untrained eye- it seems our ignorance of the white stripes will ultimately be our undoing.


  3. Sir Frederick Chooke was heard to remark,

    Upon the 20th of December, 2005 at 11:54 pm,

    Such a pre-modern thing of you to say, sir, and I commend you for it and tap out my pipe with pride!
