” … like herding sheep through the gate.”
By Gary Scarrabelotti
Perhaps you too have received a begging letter from the Federal Director of the Liberal Party, Andrew Hirst. I received mine dated today, 14 December.
Quite understandably, Andrew is concerned about richly funded, left wing, faux-independent candidates running in key federal electorates against sitting Liberal Members with the not-so-hidden agenda of putting the Labor Party into power.
There was a time when I would have shared Andrew’s concerns. But nowadays not so much. Indeed, hardly at all. Really, I can’t see why I should be disturbed by the prospect of a Labor government in Canberra when we already have one in power there, albeit in Coalition disguise. Come to think of it, having a real Labor government in charge federally would have the advantage of authenticity.
“… having a real Labor government in charge federally would have the advantage of authenticity.”
I thought, then, that Andrew deserved a short explanation for the change in my dispositions toward the Liberal Party. So, I wrote him a letter. This is what I had to say, slightly edited:
While ever the Liberal Party at the Federal level is led by Scott Morrison and continues to pursue the policies it has prosecuted since early 2020 in response to the Wuhan virus, the Liberal Party will have no support from me in any coming election.
The measures with which the Morrison government and the Liberal Party now identify are abhorrent to me. These include: the mass destruction of Australian small business; the vast increase in the debt incurred by Federal and State governments; de facto compulsory vaccination with an experimental drug; the refusal of effective early treatments to those infected by the Wuhan virus; the abandonment of national health decision-making to an unelected, globalist health bureaucracy; the failure of the federal government to exercise its responsibility for quarantine and to uphold the free movement of our people across state borders; and, finally, and most dishonestly, enabling, via its vaccine certification system, the imposition of vaccine passports by the State and Territory governments.
I will support, of course, any Liberal Party parliamentarian or other candidate for election who shares my rejection of the Party’s betrayal of our country. Otherwise, I will be casting my vote against the Morrison government and against any MP, Senator or candidate who has supported, even if only by their silence, the unpatriotic and immoral policies to which the Liberal Party has committed itself.
