This has only just come in. Rudd has secretly flown to England with several ministers for and impromptu meeting with the Queen. Unbeknown to him whilst in the palace, some of the conversations were overheard by certain persons who wish to remain anonymous.
Here is an excerpt of some of those conversations that all Aussies should know about as shows us an glimpse into the characters of those politicians that are in charge of our country. We start off with a question from Kevin Rudd.
He asks her, “Your Majesty, how do you run such an efficient
government? Are there any tips you can give to me?”
“Well,” says the Queen, “the most important thing is to surround
yourself with intelligent people.”
Rudd frowns “But how do I know the people around me are really
The Queen takes a sip of tea. “Oh, that’s easy. You just ask them to
answer an intelligent riddle.”
The Queen pushes a button on her intercom. “Please send
Gordon Brown in here, would you?”
Brown walks into the room. “Yes, my Queen?”
The Queen smiles. “Answer me this, please, Gordon. Your mother and
father have a child. It is not your brother
and it is not your sister. Who is it?”
Without pausing for a moment, Gordon Brown answers, “That would be me.”
“Yes! Very good,” says the Queen.
Rudd goes back home to ask Wayne Swan, his Treasurer, the same
“Wayne! Answer this for me. Your mother and your father have a child
It’s not your brother and it’s not your sister. Who is it?”
“I’m not sure,” says Swan. “Let me get back to you on that one.”
He goes to his advisors and asks every one, but none can give him
an answer. Finally, he ends up in the men’s room and recognizes
Tony Abbott’s shoes in the next stall.
Swan asks Abbott, “Tony! Can you answer this for me? Your mother
and father have a child and it’s not your brother or your sister.
Who is it?”
Tony Abbott yells back, “That’s easy. It’s me!”
Swan smiles, and says, “Thanks Tony!” Then, he goes back to speak with Rudd.
“Say, I did some research and I have the answer to that riddle. It’s
Rudd gets up, stomps over to Swan, and angrily yells into his face
“No, you idiot! It’s Gordon Brown!”
Seriously though, after reading this article I wonder if our politicians have gone stark raving mad. Here we have a meat industry that is so pristine and respected by others and this moron is willing to throw all of that for the sake of some export deals?
Money aside, how about the health and welfare of out citizens. Do we really wish to be exposed to a life threatening disease. I think it’s outrageous that he hasn’t even considered to consult the Aussie public. What makes it worse is that because of our inadequate labeling laws we won’t even know where the meat we buy is coming from.
Considering that we produce more than enough meat for our population, good, top quality, uninfected meat why on earth would we want to import meat from countries infected with mad cows disease.
As Aussies we shouldn’t be taking this sitting down. Write to your local member and tell them we don’t want this stuff, no matter how small the chances of infection, and that we also want proper labeling laws so that we know when we are buying true Australian products.
