Towards a more realistic view of politics- Go girls

Annabelle Crabbe's view of politicians comes as close as any I know to one of realism ."They are mad"  she rightly says to Julia in their most welcome frame of "home" visits.
If we too are not to go mad , we need some relief from their  madness - but how , when most of the ABC take them so seriously ?  
I can see both of them running the old "coming out show" - feisty is good if it brings out better , feisty is at least a way of upsetting the PC ,  get beyond the crap. To be practical NOT political 

Q and A is so symbolic of this PC stupidity - why would  we get answers from polys ?
The reality is that as our forefathers knew, nothing is as it seems on the surface. If you are not to drown in the shit ,you need a way to stay on top of it,  To know where to find a good story - and avoid  the drowning cynicism of those who don't sort out the evil elements. The faith that the left or the right really know what they are doing is a false faith !
 Its taken a while for ABC to realize that Australian story, Back roads  One 2 one and these Home visit frames should have been used for years to give viewers  a solid view away from the pathetic simplicity of the political world .
The country is a different culture and little has been done to break through and understand it - Does anyone really want to know that there are people out there who are happy living with less and living with the disciplines of real risk management.
The same is true of the important subcultures of church, business, health and real planning and environment care. The very real drama and resolution that's out there has been largely ignored.

If ABC employed more people who were actually interested in people ( like those 2) the deeper drama of conflicts in the above area we would have much more that is worthwatching  on TV
The ABC could have had by now the bones for good drama based on real contests ; a much needed real life view that would have outclassed and out sold the equally out of touch  Crawford house productions .
 Great that the ABC has uncovered a few like M&S , Utopia , The Slap , Frontline ,

Go Girls

You would think the men on Q&A last night were on drugs. Soft drugs ?Is it  only when men are weak that women have to take over ?? The women on the show were running around the  men with intellectual rigor and passion to inspire even the most tardy of male church members.
Unbelievably the program was supposed to be about strong men (Trump),
Sadly  it was Premier Andrews and his young mate from the USA who tiresomely trotted out the very bland repeats of political correctness that have so annoyed the doing people of the US . Yes we will get more Trumps here because we have such dumb soft and PC leaders here . Emperors wearing more taxes ( and court martials for deniers) as clothes!

The very unworthy spokesman for the ultimate salvation of the earth could not even say Kirabati let alone recognise it as a non-starter in his very careless and sus list of terrors from not closing down all a carbon use and putting climate deniers in jail .
If arrogant progressives ( who try to tell US scientists what’s true!) want more credibility they better listen to scientists,  not try and quote the king hit makers in the collection that they choose ( but strangely don’t appear on their stage)
The debate was supposed to be about whether we could get Trump type characters here .
Well One thing is certain ---from tonight’s entertainment package -- we have the losing side in those two men standing before us . Trump is not admired for much, but at least he is no puppet!

The sentimentalist Andrews talks about evil and wicked without having any idea of how to deal with such things. He is not even aware that his government in their wisdom are still desperately  trying to play God and parent with the people , when few of his ministers would be trusted with anyone’s children.
Such is that pacts reactive incompetence that,  in their never ending chase to stop one car from killing people , they manage to allow another to kill more. ( Streets of Melbourne a few weeks ago)

They have excelled themselves in creating emergency management empires like their own . Wisdom about prevention, fires , flood  landslides and other disasters they do not have and have not had time for . As always,  the ultimate reactionaries .
Andrews  worry brigade,  in their attempts to play God have made water and forced the public to pay for their dumb dreams of a renewable led solar pact .  In failing to plan for base load like SA Daniel is complicit in forcing the closure of one of Victories biggest export income sources and will be remembered for nothing but fine words and playing puppet to others
And where have the eager ABC reporters been when all these scoops were emerging ? Its no wonder the audience get no/half truth while Tony moves on anyone who might hijack the PC – not truth but popularity is the dream of many leading in that church.
Who in those hallowed halls has been watching while sound and well trained professionals leave the public service for the better paying but  less responsible world of the drip feed .

And what will redeem the ABC form being totally complicit in letting the sentimentalists and worry warriors take over in Victoria and Australia ? so much for a clever country ABC

Well a return to reporting would help and hearing those two women rebut the shallow sentimental stuff from the men was just enough to make any hardy anti-feminist cheer. Go girls!
