In all seriousness, do you really think you have a fair and simple solution to all the world's ills, and the only thing standing in the way is the blindness of the elite to your grand wisdom? I have as much disdain for and disappointment with the political class as the next guy, but come on, these are not simple problems that the pollies are just too stupid or disinterested to solve.
Please tell me you don't think you and the rest of the internet brains trust have all of the answers, and if you were in charge things would be so much better?
If so, why are you wasting your wisdom on ISG? Go out and fix the world Rob!
Don't you think there is a need for some black and white guidelines.
Obviously, the bail justices have a lot of discretion within the guidelines they are given. Why not make it easier for them to do their job !
The pollies don't have the guts to make "right wing" decisions. They are too beholden to Jon Faine and his cohort of doctor's wives, Fitzroy legal service, human rights lawyers, ambulance chasers etc. It's not about "stupidity or disinterest" it is fear of an election backlash from the potential defectors to the Greens.
Howard, despite his obvious ineptitude, did impose the changes to gun laws post Port Arthur. The chances of Andrews taking strong action are non-existent.
Why are the issues so complex ? If someone has served time they have to pay. Sex Offenders are placed on the register and pay forever. Why shouldn't people that are incarcerated for violent acts par forever as well.
Sorry Pete but your glass half full approach reflects the political class.
I'd love to be in politics but since I haven't been brown nosing the power brokers for a decade or longer I have no chance. Plus I'd never agree to a party policy that I didn't believe in. I'm far too honest.
You're probably against the death sentence as well. What's your erudite reasoning for not topping this arsehole ?
I am mid table mediocrity !
