The following two newspaper quotes illustrate what is wrong with politics and society:
1."Three Yarra Trams employees have been stood down pending an investigation, following complaints about a strip show hosted at the Brunswick tram depot Christmas party.
The Andrews Government has weighed into allegations about the lewd performance at the party, which was run by the depot’s employee-run social club.
“While this is a matter for Yarra Trams, it’s an incredibly disappointing incident that clearly doesn’t meet community expectations,” a government spokeswoman said. "
- “A teenager accused of assaulting a police officer while on probation has been released on bail. … The teenager was on 12 months’ probation at the time of the alleged assault and has a history of criminal offences including aggravated and attempted aggravated burglaries and car theft.”
How re-assuring that the government can make time to comment on a fat-o-gram, whilst the legal system views the South Sudanese scum as meeting “acceptable community expectations”.
My New Year wish is that some our our politicians and legal practitioners have the opportunity to host some of our South Sudanese brethren in their own homes (out-of-hours, unannounced, and un-invited) during the year.
