PM Gillard is gone, PM Rudd is here, what now? let’s stop President Abbott

4 Jul

I have found this past week difficult but some things remain clear: Primarily, Abbott must not become PM, he is unsuitable on so many grounds. I am furious at Kevin Rudd for not just what he has done but the smarmy way he went about it. However, as I’ve told very many people since Gillard became PM, Australia DOES NOT VOTE IN A PRIME MINISTER BUT A GOVERNMENT. Currently, the Australian Government is Labor. Therefore, I have decided I will continue to support Labor because it is the only Party which consistently improves the lot of all Australians not just the monied, affiliated to the big end of town, the elite educated or the status quo of the white, middle-aged male. As a feminist, I am well aware of the fact that the forward momentum of equality for women, owes most if not all that has been achieved to Labor Governments. As a humanist, I acknowledge that, not without errors and wrong decisions at various times on various issues, the progression of equity and civil responsibility to all has also mostly been achieved via Labor Governments. I hold out no hope of anything but retraction and austerity toward the majority in favour of the minority who already have resources, ownership and opportunity – including health, higher education and financial security if the current LNP as led by Tony Abbott wins Government. In my 60s, I can honestly say I have never feared more for Australia and Australians that I do when I contemplate the current LNP in government or Abbott as PM. Vote 1 Labor
