Does one get the feeling, there is something very unusual arising in the community? It is not anger or rage. Much deeper than that. It is not about politics or parties.
It is as if a body of people is standing up, and quietly saying “enough is enough”.
It is being driven by no one.
I think that asylum seeker having his throat slit might be the final straw.
I have joined up with the Getup group in my area. Yes, many people willing to take a stand. Very few have any interest in connection with any party. They all appear sincere about bringing about a change,
Most are not young.
If I am correct, Labor will have to be very careful how they manage things. I suspect these people are not interested in politics, in fact, many are saying a pox on all houses.
One is picking the same sentiment up on social media and blogs. Even comments on MSM sites.
We have the G20 Treasurers and bankers in Sydney. This under normal times would be a big event. The MSM seems to be ignoring it. It makes one cringe the little we see of Hockey.
The only reason I can see to it being ignored, is that the MSM does not want to highlight the fact that Hockey is making a fool of himself.
Maybe I am wrong, and it is wishful thinking on my part.
I BELIEVE WE ARE MOVING INTO A POLITICAL SCENE, WE HAVE NEVER SEEN IN THIS COUNTRY.
What is amazing, it is not rage, hate or anger. It comes across to me, as being steely resignation. Yes, a feeling that many believe they have no choice but stand up and be counted.
It is more like the public has lost all respect and belief in this government.
