I agree that our pollies are not the best.
But we here in Oz are still doing better than most of the rest of the world.
is paradise in more ways than one. Our climate, landscape, employment
levels, safe banks and economy is the envy of the world.
Free education, free medical
, the dole and other pensions as a safety
. Free beaches. Our harbours and waterways and nearly all foreshores are for the use and benefit of all not just the rich.
And whilst it is illegal to live aboard
. We don't have our harbours clogged with thousands of people living on boats and dumping their waste into the water
If something goes wrong or a disaster e.g. floods, bushfires, cyclones. We all pitch
in to help and get it sorted.
Equality. If a pollie shouts "DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM" They are the ones who are vilified. As they should be.
We have a beautiful, safe and friendly place to live.
Where, in reality, we are only limited by our own ambition and capability.
And if it all falls over we take care of the people who need a hand.
Yes, yes I know we all want everything better. But we really do have it pretty good.
And yes you can stay at CYC for $35 a night, with use of all facilities. I did it recently. Try and get an inner city hotel
for that price
. The view, food
and showers are fabulous.
