    It seems we’ve sublimated, as in turned from solid to vapour or transferred our ego-based traumas to another focus, rather than achieved the sublime. Poor fellow our country.

    Tragically brilliant toon, for a tragically sad and shameful day FD.

    ‘Picture an army of lost souls, haunted and broken, scrubbing, scrubbing, scrubbing in the tropical sun.’

    Wow… that line alone made me want to cry. Unfortunately FD, you’ve summed up this mess perfectly.

    You’re in top form, Mr Dog.

    The old pea and thimble trick – c’mon people, why are we allowing those combined jerks in Canberra to pull these cruel stunts? The govt is catering for a few rednecks, hoping for a sprinkling of extra votes to hold onto government. At any human cost.

    Its all Terra Nullius again ! Lets hope no enterprising seaman with an eye to the main chance plants a flag and claims us in the name of King Zog. Actually, that might be preferrable to the mob we’ve got.

    I can feel the High Court practising their harrumphs.

    At times like these I wish we could get rid of the National Character and just keep the stain.

    Visa applicants are required to complete an “Australian Values Statement” which includes:

    respect for the freedom and dignity of the individual
    equality of men and women
    freedom of religion
    commitment to the rule of law
    parliamentary democracy
    a spirit of egalitarianism that embraces mutual respect, tolerance, fair play, compassion for those in need and pursuit of the public good
    equality of opportunity for individuals, regardless of their race, religion or ethnic background.

    We should impose a compulsory values statement on politicians..
