Mr. Rabbit’s Doubts, Deliberations and Decisions About the Royal Wedding.

Many of us here in Downunderland
Living far away from the Motherland,
Question the need for a royal wedding.
We’ve heard too much of prenuptial bedding
By this young and attractive royal pair
And their ‘on again, off again’ affaire,

The British government seem overjoyed
To have something for their unemployed
To smile about as they drink their beer.
Although we don’t have that problem here,
The populace is pleased and seems excited
By the thought that we have been invited.

So, our Red Queen and partner will attend.
This,  Mr. Rabbit simply can’t defend.
Our Governor General will act graciously,
But that woman’ll behave mendaciously!
She lies!   And worse!   She is living in sin!
But that, he must not say;   to his chagrin.

He knows our PM and her ‘de facto’
Have just met Emperor Akihito
On an official visit to Japan,
Where due deference was shown ‘her man.’
How will Mr. Rabbit contain his spleen,
When these two meet Her Majesty, the Queen?

So public opinion is in suspense.
For many this marriage does make some sense.
If only to produce a legal heir.
But there’s already one. No, two! And spare!
So all this great expensive spectacle
Is so ‘royals’ can look respectable?

Our Mr. Rabbit is always urging
Young women here to refrain from merging
With others;  even with their fiancé.
For this royal bride he’ll just have to pray.
‘Cos the whole world knows he is far too late
To counsel thus our Prince William’s Kate.

Suddenly, the wily Mr. Rabbit
Has seen a chance and he thinks he’ll grab it.
He can promote himself as Mr. Clean,
Proclaim this sinful charade obscene!
Even declare himself Republican!
He pauses.  Could he cross that Rubicon?

Downunderland gets roused by many things,
It hates dead empires and corrupted kings.
No need for a double dissolution!
He Can Do It!   Cry, “ People’s Revolution!”
As absolute ruler of this nation,
Who’d dare not send him a royal wedding invitation!

  1. patricia that’s a gem. Mr. Rabbott would be ear bashing his wife and saying all the BAD WORDS that he can’t say in so many words in public.

    In any case isn’t it a case of pots and kettles; I seem to remember some highly publicised guff about his activities when he was a “callow youth”, as he described himself.
    It would be safe to bet that he was sent overseas to avoid any “awkwardness” and tough t…… about what he left behind.
    In his world he can be forgiven his sins if he is truly sorry, and I find that to be a very doubtful possibility.
    How could he attain his high ranked destiny with any hint of a s-h-o-t-g-u-n?

  2. I believe that Mr. Bean has been invited to the wedding..excellent decision on Wills and Kate’s part, after all who would you rather keep company with an old sour puss like Abbott or a fun Mr. Bean 😀

  3. Kate’s also invited some locals like her postman. As more of the guest list is released each revelation must irk Abbott more.

  4. Where he always runs off to when the focus is on Gillard and not himself so he can meet up with the right wing plotters and schemers there to bring more of divisive Republican style politics here, and Australian politics becomes the poorer for it every time he does this.

    Abbott is a man without an original thought or insight within him, he’s totally incapable of being creative or producing anything innovative, so he either digs into the Howard bag of tricks or runs off to the US to learn from their deviousness.

    He did run off to the UK once to meet with their right wing schemers and plotters but it turned out they were nowhere near right wing enough and had ideas such as carbon abatement, environment and other social ideas that were alien to Abbott. Plus it seemed the Pommy right wing didn’t really like Abbott that much so he doesn’t go there anymore.

  5. Mobius, it does seem to be a personality trait of Abbott’s..to launch into personal insults when he isn’t the centre of attention. Spoilt prat syndrome and that’s for certain!!

  6. Mr. Abbott should find himself at home in the USA among the Tea Party pals. Wonder who he supports, Palin or Trump.

  7. Catching Up, he ‘d probable settle for Trump because he’s a male and wealthy, even though Palin is the Christian.
    Either way he’s on the Tea Party band wagon, or is that the leader/star of the band wagon?
    I wonder is he visiting the Heartland institute.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heartland_Institute

    The Heartland Institute is a libertarian[2][3][4] American public policy think tank based in Chicago, Illinois which advocates free market policies. The Institute is designated as a 501(c)(3)non-profit by the Internal Revenue Service and advised by a 15 member board of directors, which meets quarterly. As of 2008, it has a full-time staff of 30, including editors and senior fellows.[2] The Institute was founded in 1984 and conducts research and advocacy work on issues including government spending, taxation, healthcare, tobacco policy, global warming, information technology and free-market environmentalism.

    In the 1990s, the group worked with the tobacco company Philip Morris to question the science linking secondhand smoke to health risks, and to lobby against government public health reforms.[5][6][7] More recently, the Institute has focused on questioning the scientific consensus on climate change, and has sponsored meetings of climate change skeptics.[8]

    They’re an interesting lot, and determined on free market propaganda every step of the way.
    If you watch The Drum on ABC24 you will see the Aussie version, the motor mouth types from the Institute of Public affairs

  8. I think you will find that the Heartland Institute is exactly where he is going and I think he visited them the last time he ran to the US. Telling though, it was when Howard courted them that his fortunes went downhill.

    They are a poison chalice.

  9. Mobious, I think Steve Fielding gathered his “knowledge” from Heartland as well. Quite a recommendation…

  10. Patricia WA, Every line a pearl, I do not know how you do it.

    A gift that keeps giving, Mr. Bean gets an invite and Mr. people skills is left out in the cold are there any other overseas invitees i.e. NZ or Canada politico’s??. If he is out of the country could we have him declared persona non-gratis re his call for a revolt against the duly democratically elected government and stop the plane or boat or whatever mode of transport he is using.

  11. So, are we here at the Cafe going to enjoy this special day? The Chasers must be feeling as bad as, if not worse than Tony. They’ve not simply not been invited. They’ve been told to stay away!

    I wonder how Tony’s really feeling? Will he be watching? Will someone be sure to let us all know when Julia appears at Westminster Abbey. I wonder if Gai Waterhouse will be watching so she can assess her fashion sense. Will the PM meet her rigorous standards? How will it affect the polls?

    The Americans are already enjoying it. Well, when they don’t think of more serious things!http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/wed-april-27-2011/katedown-to-the-royal-willding—the-nuptials-of-the-century.

  12. Grrrrr…Sky commentator saying that Julia Gillard and Tim Mathieson should get “an organised relationship”. The commentator then went on to smugly state that the PM’s partner was “making a fool of himself” overseas, and from what I heard it’s to do with Tim making the presentation of the wedding gift. I would have thought that it is protocol for a Prime Minister’s partner to make this presentation and it just so happens that our PM has a bloke as a partner.
