To: Anthony Albanese.

Prime Minister,

You said that, by voting for you to lead the nation, the Australian people have voted for change. You write on twitter: “I want to bring people together and lead a government that is as courageous, hard-working and caring as the Australian people.”

Here is a list of changes I hope for in Australia, things that I hope you will care about and work for:

1. Will you find out how many people lockdowns killed? How many old people in aged care were so grief stricken at being cut off from their families that they stopped eating and died? How many suicides did lockdowns cause?

2. Will you protect the human rights which have been trashed in Australia? Freedom of speech? Freedom of movement? The right to consent and not be compelled to take any medical treatment?

3. Will you address the contempt for mothers which has characterized the feminist era?

4. Will you oppose the misandrist demonisation of men which I believe drives up to 7 Australian men to despair and take their own lives every day?

5. Will you reduce the debt that threatens to destroy Australia’s future?

6. Will you work to make certain that no Australian religious leader can ever again be thrown into jail because he had conducted a mass in a cathedral.

7. Will you make it impossible for politicians to use family violence courts against people like me? In 2015-16, I wanted to celebrate WW2 and human rights. As a result of police state like action from within your political party, I was arrested by police and taken to a Family Violence Court and threatened with jail.

8. Will you make certain that no political candidate in an Australian election can ever again disappear into the prison system for unkown reasons during an election campaign? That happened to one good man I met this year in Melbourne. Do you care about this, Anthony Albanese?

REFUGEEING

Across the western world people are disconnecting from each other and their own nations. Rome’s great poet of the natural world, Vergil, (he was more famous for his patriotic epic poetry but wanted that work burnt after his death) dealt with this theme of disconnection right across his career. “Nos patriam fugimus” (literally : “we flee our fatherland/motherland”) was the start of the third line of his first surviving poetic work.

In my case, in the twenty-first century, ridiculous contempt for my life’s work destroyed my capacity to function “normally” in the country of my birth.

A new social contract is needed.

Open Letter to Bill Shorten: You Are Not Fit to Lead Australia.

 

Bill Shorten (BS),

I live in Maribyrnong where I have learnt how unfit you and your party are to govern Australia.

You cant deliver three things Australia needs:

  1. Secure borders.
  2. Democracy and Civic Rights.
  3. Mutual respect with America.

It appears that people smugglers want your Australian Labor Party (ALP) to win the next election because Labor governments in Canberra let them do business.

All around the western world, peoples are realising that immigration must be controlled and that open borders don’t work.

The last time the ALP did a good job on border protection was in World War Two under John Curtin. Curtin redefined Australia’s place in the world when he told the nation: “Australia looks to America.”

When I tried to celebrate that triumph over fascism, through your ALP in your political home in Maribyrnong, I was arrested by the police.

I have written about this to you, BS, many times.

You haven’t replied once.

What chance does Australian democracy have under your leadership if a Maribyrnong politician from your party can get a patriotic citizen arrested as a result of lobbying and you say nothing?

40 days before the police force that answers to your party colleague Daniel Andrews arrested me, you said, “I think Donald Trump’s views are just barking mad on some issues.”

Here are some of Donald Trump’s commitments:

  1. Patriotism.
  2. Border Protection.
  3. Tax Cuts.
  4. Fair Trade.
  5. Fairness for men.
  6. Avoiding unnecessary war.

Do you, BS, think all of these ideas are “barking mad” or only some of them?

Are you going to apologise to the President of our long standing ally?

Or are you going to let the insult stand as proof that you are not fit to lead Australia?
