The rest of the world must really have a laugh at Australian Politics. Every few+ years there is another Leader who is challenged for the role from within his own "loyal" team. (lol)
Its painfully obvious that they suck the knob of big business, and have little regard for their citizens. Just last week when they were asked why we are still sending millions to foreign farmers while our farmers are struggling, the response was that we need to send the foreigners support because it means a $$ return.
So, F you aussie farmers, we are concentrating on future business turnover, NOT you.
It would make a sad, funny sitcom. (lol) (lol) (lol)

Hi hillbilly

Ever noticed when our politicians are sworn in they take the following oath / pledge allegiance .

The Australian Constitution requires that those elected to the Senate and the House of Representatives swear or solemnly affirm their allegiance to the Crown. ... I, A.B., do swear that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Victoria, Her heirs and successors according to law.

Rudd and Keating were the only reported ones that pledged allegiance to the Commonwealth.

Plenty of other examples besides farmers to what you are saying.

Immigration intake has become a joke with 630.000 per year now coming in permanently and on top of that we have 1.6 million people in oz on work permit visas.
