Downunder in Australia it seems that the Labor government is in trouble and they are trying every legal trick in the book to keep a lid on what could be some very serious charges (allegedly). These are discussed on Ozboy’s blog….
So if you wish to learn me help yourselves however that is not the premise of my blog. As we know pretty much any government anywhere are corrupt democratically elected or not Right or Left it’s always a matter of degree and the age we live in and it always seems to go in cycles. 18th century politics in the UK was a pretty corrupt affair with corruption and immorality rife, the 19th century seemed to be one of far less corruption and a more moral time, the 20th century seemed to be transition time from Moral to Immoral from little corruption to lots.
This corruption coupled with a massive sense of entitlement from the political classes now pervades the globe and with it a new sense of the divine right of Kings morphed into the divine right of PM’s and Presidents to rule by diktat and decree.
So when scandals hit they now seem to feel they are above the law and it only applies to the little people and they will use every legal or quasi legal arrow in the quiver to hush things up and sometimes not quite so legal means, inconvenient people do have an unfortunate tendency to want to commit suicide by incredibly impossible means.
Or am I wrong and we only appear to be in a corrupt age because the internet allows us to know more about what gets hidden or people try to bury?
