Posted in: Australian PM won't say who might attend Tokyo summit 3 days after election See in context

It's not the person, but the Country, whom I'd be meeting and greeting.. and that, is how I'd hope everyone treats each other. "Leaders" come and go, but in the end, it's the little folks - you and me, who remain, we don't all have to agree upon everything, but, we can agree on one thing, I guess....

Life.

So let's start there and build upwards.

Who ever wins, it'd be good to meet and greet you outside your Embassy at 1100 hrs JSTon Sunday, just in time to meet the US & India Blokes next door :-)

Gang-Crime is a good start.

I'd start depositing these members on remote islets for a week or two, without anything, to soften them up a bit, and if more dangerous, leave them further afield to live within their own Society for as long as they can.

No Politics involved, but merely local Community driven - something that has been long forgotten about by Politicians Globally, who are more interesting in lining their pocket with Corporate Sponsorships... something that needs to end.

A Union-wide effort to vote in the "Monster raving looney party" would be perhaps the most pragmatic thing, the UK voting populace could do right now, under the current circumstances.

And, I doubt, that they'd do any worse than the current Government/Opposition could do. So its probably a Safe bet.

The Tories have, in my opinion, lost touch with reality. I would not be surprised if they start suggesting bringing back a Modern day Workhouse...

I used to think Conservatives were Business focused people, aiming to get the Country back on its feet after the Labour disaster of the 1970's, but now... I think the roles have reversed, but I don't know if the other side can do any better.... apathy is going to be the future sadly.

"1970 Inflation"... I remember that time. Brought down the Labour Governent back then. Strange how the penny has turned.

MacD's pulling out of Russia is a Statement... one that must surely raise the question "Why" to most young Russians....

Now of course, I guess the KGB or whatever they call themselves nowadays, will tell these young people that the West has been feeding them Poison... in which case, the buyer of the McDonald's Chain of Restaurant real-estate is going to be facing a big problem...

I have doubts over the validity of these so called "tests" and similarly, about the truth over having a vaccination that prevents you from being a carrier and infecting others around you. The, latter, is clearly, proven as a falsehood, and the former, is from experience a bit hit & miss.

Good on him. He stuck by his guns, didn't succumb to the whims of peer-pressure from certain Governments, and can still hold onto a match and win.

True Democrat.

Apparently these nut-cases believe in something called the "Replacement Theory" - which goes along the lines of "People from elsewhere are moving in and taking over..." - throw in a bit of modern day Politics or Religion, and you can twist this into whatever cause you wish to promote.

It's nothing new, I bet the indigenous peoples of many Countries around the World, said the same thing back in their time.

However, there will always be nut-cases around, and such people shouldn't be allowed access to Guns, Gun ownership if necessary, should be something earnt over time, it's harder to get a driving license than it is to get a Gun !
