Totally and completely accurate, and with style. Typical FD at his best. Most especially I liked the bit “if his political masters are duplicitous, populist, Howardian robots.’ Fantastic. And, ‘Your father’s friends in Canberra will ensure we watch the planet destroyed before we go.’ The only thing you might have slipped in was that the politicians will be watching, via their own satellite, from an air-conditioned bunker, said air being automatically re-cycled through the world’s best filtering systems, centrally-heated, furnished with the best antiques, the best library, the best wine cellars, and including special religious chapels to suit any denomination, the best chefs, and the entire bureaucracy, the army, the air-force, and all the civil servants who have latched onto the hapless OZ electorate since Adam was a boy. etc, etc..
Oh most loved and revered FDOTM, we salute you from here in the forest floor…..
Hit the nail on the head. Now I’m off to do my own hypocritical bit for the environment, killing several trees and emitting vast amounts of CO2 while printing out the cartoon and putting up multiple copies around the joint.
I’m so proud to know you FD! Did you realise all the shoes tossed at the Prime Minister today in the climate change demo’s were thrown at your balloon replica of our PM!! Only downunder do we reverently throw re-treads at cartoon replicas of icons such as the PM. You surely agree now that Kev’s inclusion in your tea-towel collection is mandatory along with Abbey and Jasper. A balloon anchored by a heap of dunlops and thongs will depict the highs and lows of a nation well and truly towelled down by political parties. You’re a legend FD!!
I’ve been saying for years that the Labor Party must embrace the Greens, it kept them out of power for longer than neccessary. When will they accept that support of the Greens will bring strength and revitalisation? This irrational fear is going to continue to place our country in grave danger. At the moment the Party is simply more of the same continuing on from the Howard years, ignoring the platforms which brought them to power.
