    Dear P Nurry

    What a fitting closure to a parliamentary term that has caused so many Australians to express their disgust at the political process and its principal players.

    In return for the pox we wish on both their houses, the major political parties turned around this week and showed the finger to the voters and taxpayers – those meant to be their absolute masters.

    Althought the Liberals may get some grudging regard for finally pulling the plug on the plot to steal taxpayer’s funds to run the parties’ day-to-day operations, the truth is they were all complicit and deserving of our scorn.

    Yes – they were deserving of our scorn, and – as I mentioned above – they were deserving of pox.

    As I said earlier in this piece: “In return for the pox we wish on both their houses, the major political parties turned around this week and showed the finger to the voters and taxpayers – those meant to be their absolute masters”.

    And this wasn’t some rehashed quote I pulled in while cutting and pasting other people’s work – nor was it a quote from one of my radio shows earlier this week (or double dipped copy, as some of my Duckburg hack mates at The Worst like to call it).

    No this quote was a ridgy didge original quote. And I meant it.

    I went on: “Althought the Liberals may get some grudging regard for finally pulling the plug on the plot to steal taxpayer’s funds to run the parties’ day-to-day operations, the truth is they were all complicit and deserving of our scorn.”

    There are two pressing conflicts of interest which dictate the parliament could not vote on the issue with clean hands without seeking a mandate through a plebicite.

    The political parties control the careers of MPs through the simple power of preselection. Their indentured politicians need cash to be re-elected.

    Those conflicts mean directing taxpayer funds to political parties without specific authority is larceny. That is the antithesis of democracy.

    If anything, they should be smeared with pox.

    You may recall that I said earlier in this column: “In return for the pox we wish on both their houses, the major political parties turned around this week and showed the finger to the voters and taxpayers – those meant to be their absolute masters.”

    And I was right. Why?

    Well, as I explained above: “There are two pressing conflicts of interest which dictate the parliament could not vote on the issue with clean hands without seeking a mandate through a plebicite.

    “The political parties control the careers of MPs through the simple power of preselection. Their indentured politicians need cash to be re-elected.

    “Those conflicts mean directing taxpayer funds to political parties without specific authority is larceny. That is the antithesis of democracy.”

    Money just breeds the sort of turbocharged, poll driven inherently tricky politics that now make most Australians vomit.

    Lean political operations, dependent on whatever funds they can scratch from altruists not buying favours, might get morality back into their favour.

    The truth is that fewer and fewer members of the public are members of political parties. The antithesis of democracy is when a small group of people try to dominate the majority.

    Again, I come back to the idea of antithesis. As I said earlier: “The political parties control the careers of MPs through the simple power of preselection. Their indentured politicians need cash to be re-elected.

    “Those conflicts mean directing taxpeyer funds to political parties without specific authority is larceny. That is the antithesis of democracy.”

    And there’s not only pox, but there is also vomit, as I rightly pointed out: “Money just breeds the sort of turbocharged, poll driven inherently tricky politics that now make most Australians vomit.”

    I then went on: “Lean political operations, dependent on whatever funds they can scratch from altruists not buying favours, might get morality back into their favour.

    “The truth is that fewer and fewer members of the public are members of political parties. The antithesis of democracy is when a small group of people try to dominate the majority.”

    The sooner politicians wrap their heads around the fact that they are on the nose for good reasons, the sooner we can return to a form of politics that serves the public – not them.

    That’s right – politicians are meant to serve us, as I rightly pointed out in the preceeding sentence: “The sooner politicians wrap their heads their heads around the fact that they are on the nose for good reasons, the sooner we can return to a form of politics that serves the public – not them.”

    What a fitting closure to a parliamentary term that has caused so many Australians to express their disgust at the political process and its principal players (errr, you’ve already said that – ed).
