Federal politics in Australia is in ugly disarray these days. Dirty laundry is being aired ad nauseam, there’s trash talk by the bucket load, muckraking, mudslinging, political careers dishevelled, leadership spills and most recently a political assassination resulting in blood on the floor… yet again! Sadly, Canberra is in an utter mess.
What do we have to do to bring order to this place? To end these toxic times?
As a cleaner with considerable experience in the cleaning industry, it is my humble opinion that we need to begin by throwing out the political garbage. To regain trust in our political institutions, we need to reset the political landscape and this can only be done by bringing on an election and wiping clean the slate.
