Now time for a royal commission.

Are we being treated like human beings by our Corporate Captains? Have they heard of the word 'compassion' or is greed the guiding light for them?

Labor has been calling for a Royal Commission into our banking system for quite a while now and with the string of scandals we have had, it would be a good platform to take to the next election. Unfortunately, Shorten is most uninspiring and many just dont want him as our P.M. but who knows, he may well suffer "the knife" before we go to the polls again. If Labor comes up with a popular and charismatic leader, Turnbull would not be hard to beat.

It's difficult to imagine this government getting another guernsey.

I'd like a Royal Commission into :

1. State Governments selling off our poles, wires, electricity grids.

2. Selling our natural gas to overseas markets and leaving us short.

3. Shutting down our oil, petrol, diesel refineries..... Australia only has about two weeks worth of fuel in reserve. If and when the shit hits the fan, our total reliance on our fuel stocks coming from overseas in monstrous tankers will mean that we will be up shit creek without a paddle.

4. Allowing overseas multi national to buy up our dairy industry.... they are already sending our top quality Australian milk overseas where it's fetching up to 8 bucks per litre.


Yep !.... the future of Australia is bleak and I'm glad that I won't be around to see it.... but worry about my grandkids future.

A couple of other issues to add to the list :

1. Maybe a royal commission into what really went on during the Slipper saga.

2. Investigate why there is a hold-up in the Kathy Jackson prosecution. How long has it been now?

Strange how some of these things drag on.
