Lined Up Like Stormtroopers – Lest We Forget

Today is the 64th birthday of former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott.

For innovative policy and speaking truths that others wouldn’t speak, I rate him as one of the best Australian Prime Ministers since WW2 hero John Curtin.

A very recent outstanding act of service to Australia from Mr Abbott is his statement condemning police action against peaceful protestors in Melbourne. He described police as being “……. lined up like stormtroopers …….” to stop a peaceful protest by “people who are sick and tired of (lockdown) restrictions which frankly are now becoming absolutely unreasonable”.

It needed to be said. And the public have a right to know who gave the orders and authorisation for the teargas and rubber bullets used by police against citizens exercising their right to free speech.

God bless you and thank you Mr Abbott.

Please stay strong.

Open Letter to Karl David and All Good Cops.

Dear Karl David (President, The Police Association Victoria) and all your troubled colleagues,

today, on the 44th anniversary of Bing Crosby’s death, I invoke Gentleman Bing’s immortal spirit to ask you to listen to me and millions of others who are suffering needlessly and unfairly because of work you are, arguably, “forced” to do.

Lockdowns are killing people and trashing their human rights, their livelihoods and their societies.

You do not have to do that or assist that.

You have the right and responsibility to serve and protect.

You know that. I know that. So do many other people in their hearts if not their heads.

Please BE a force for good not for evil.

Stand up now against your own growing police states.

Please.

Geoff Fox, 14th October, 2021, Down Under.
