Defective system rewards deficient Albanese

by DAVID FLINT – WITH less than an abysmal one-third of the vote, a clearly inadequate and far-Left politician has become Australia’s 31st prime minister. 

This was allowed by a seriously defective electoral system designed principally to protect the atrophying two-Party system and one more open to blatant fraud than in any comparable country. 

Whatever terrible burden they subject the poor to, this will do absolutely nothing to improve the climate.

How long will the people tolerate this unworthy electoral system?

In the meantime, as earlier mentioned, it became apparent two decades ago that the elites are being increasingly infected by a variant of what Churchill once declared as a ‘plague bacillus’; namely, Marxism, obviously no friend of democracy.


Almost all the electorates targeted by the ‘teal Greens’ were among the small minority of blue-ribbon Liberal electorates voting for that constitutional abomination, the Turnbull-Keating republic.

Their elite majority increasingly lack common sense, fail to see the hypocrisy of their virtue-signalling and should surely know that whatever terrible burden they subject the poor to, this will do absolutely nothing to improve the climate.

These elites are living examples of the observation attributed long ago to Chesterton, that when man stops believing in God, it is not that he believes in nothing, it’s that he will believe in anything.

So whatever impossible dogma comes in from the American Marxists, the elites believe it.

The latest is gender fluidity, even where it notoriously involves significant child abuse.

These dogmas all have one thing in common. They are all designed to create victims to replace the downtrodden proletariat in classical Marxist theory, as well as destroy significant institutions and values, especially the family.

The political strategist who first noticed the emergence of elite-dominated electorates in the referendum, Rick Brown, also had the prescience to warn, in a 2009 report The China Advantage: What Price a Free Trade Agreement with China? against the frequent politicians’ formula that we did not need to choose between Beijing and Washington.

But politicians ignored him, transferring manufacturing to China and ceding to the communists’ control of many of our best and most strategic assets including the Port of Darwin.

It was always obvious that Scott Morrison tended to be opportunistic.

He demonstrated this when, as a minister, he worked with Malcolm Turnbull to overthrow his prime minister, Tony Abbott.

As Paul Keating had demonstrated, if a minister is dissatisfied with the leader, the correct ethical protocol is to resign and campaign openly from the backbench.


Opportunism too often tainted Morrison’s leadership as it had Turnbull’s.

Instead of exercising leadership over the Wuhan virus, he abdicated his federal responsibility to do what Tony Abbott no doubt counselled in his internationally acclaimed pandemic plan when health minister.

This was to protect the vulnerable, and counsel care and hygiene to the rest, allowing them to get on with their lives.

But when the Labor States decided to follow Beijing with the communist fantasy that lockdowns can destroy the virus, instead of using federal powers to stop them, Prime Minister Morrison, supported by Treasurer Josh Frydenberg, foolishly underwrote their fantasy.

In doing so they helped create a vast debt for the next generation, ratcheting up inflation and supporting the States trampling on human rights.

Similarly, at the Glasgow Cop 26 climate change conference, Morrison completely abandoned the Liberal Party’s objection to net-zero emissions by 2050.

It is hard then to understand the eulogising of Treasurer Frydenberg.

Our perilous economic situation was well explained by Bob Katter on the Alan Jones program on (The Katter interview can be seen on the Alan Jones YouTube channel, as well as one with me warning about an Albanese government’s commitment to undermining the Constitution with a Minister for the Republic).

Katter argued that our economic situation is not the result of the government’s superior financial administration.

In a country where the Chinese communists control about 40 per cent of our electricity, and where we are now net importers of even fruit and vegetables, our economic strength lies essentially in the fact that there are buyers in the world for our fossil fuels, some of which we almost give away compared with other countries – coal, gas and iron ore.

I first met Bob Katter when I chaired the Broadcasting Authority.

The television networks had decided to concentrate everything in Sydney and close down a lot of local journalism in country Australia.

Bob came to remonstrate with me for doing nothing about this. After listening to him, I produced the draft policy which I persuaded the board to accept ordering the networks to broadcast a certain amount of local news.

He was delighted and thanked me. He is a down-to-earth politician who acts on principle.


The decision by Craig McLachlan to abandon his defamation case made me think back to the time when I worked as a lawyer and a prospective client would instruct me to take out a writ for some defamatory statement.

The lessons from the disastrous case Oscar Wilde brought against the Marquess of Queensbury would always come back to me.

I was of course bound to warn the client about the potential expense of such an action and the need to have funds in trust to brief counsel.

But I would add that there was a danger that the defamation case could dominate their lives.

Experience shows that such a case can sometimes destroy the plaintiff’s health and happiness even where they prevail.

In what legal commentator, Richard Ackland, described as one of the biggest defamation cases in the common law world, leading Sydney solicitor John Marsden secured a very large out-of-court settlement from Channel 7 on stories that he had engaged in under-age sex.

When Marsden died not long after this, I always wondered whether it was expedited by the litigation.

I have always followed my own advice, although I suspect that there could be times when honour would demand action.

A republican site used to describe me as a “perma-tanned Indonesian-born blow-in”.

Rather than complaining and certainly not suing, I have found this to be a superb prop for the odd after-dinner speech.

People who first hear it are nervous, but when they see that I am anything but offended, they truly enjoy it.PC

  1. The quotation by Chesterton that Mr Flint pens for our considerarion is the answer to all of the Australian peoples woes. It wasn’t coal, iron ore or the sheep’s back that made this wonderful nation great – It was Jesus Christ. We have all gone astray and forgotten the God who blessed Australia and it’s precious people. Open your bibles to 2 Chronicles chapter 7 verse 14 and hear what the One True Living God is still speaking to us as a people in this land in this time that we are living in: “If My people, who are called by My Name, would humble themselves and pray and seek My Face and TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, then I WILL hear from Heaven, I WILL forgive their sins and I WILL HEAL THEIR LAND”.
    And there is the Truth and the answer to all our nation’s ailments. Without God we are all like lost sheep without a Good Shepherd to lead us. God is Truth, He cannot lie. If we sincerely, with an open and contrite heart will simply do our best to do those four things, He will absolutely perform the other three for us. Why? Because, as the ultimate Father He loves us and cares immensely about us. What will it take for us all to return to Him in obedience to His instructions which are all in the bible. Aren’t our children and children’s children worth it to continue to have the same freedom and prosperity that previous generations were blessed to experience? I say absolutely YES! Jesus said “If you love Me, obey My commandments”. Choose Life Australia. Repent and turn back to the Lord. Jesus said
    “I AM THE WAY, I AM THE TRUTH, I AM THE LIFE. God have mercy on this great nation

  2. IMPORTANT Australians have been shocked and brutalized over the entire PLANDEMIC and a lot of the population are still in their sandpits with ear muffs and eye patches on and nuzzling affectionately and caressing their mobile phones whilst endlessly taking arggghhhh selfies !!! and there was something radically wrong with our Federal Government Election on 21 May 2022 !!!!!!!!!!!!!! And the Tyrannical Labor Party got in and The Freedom Parties crushed !!!!!!
    Something big needs to be done on a massive scale so that ALL the people know about what has been done to OUR Country and OUR world! How the hell did this be allowed to happen !? Treating All the world’s people like animals ! And we ask who and what is going to stop these monstrous psychopathic power crazed lawless Tyrants who are murdering our lives and Democracies ?!?!
    ADC The Australian Arm of the World Economic Forum ! TERRIFYING

  3. Yes, it is a horribly defective system when a very inferior government can ‘win’ power by receiving less than one third of the votes of the citizens!
    But this is what happens when votes are scattered and spread amongst extremely small entities, most of whom are ridiculously hopeless!

    The taking of a medicine or vaccine should NEVER be mandated. However, after having my husband nearly die twice from Covid during his stay of two weeks in the wonderful North Shore Hospital, I would recommend unequivocally that everyone keeps up to date with Covid vaccines. It has been proven to at least lessen the effects of this new virus.

    As we are NOT facing any ‘climate’ crises out of the ordinary!
    This alarmism is an insidious hoax. In these present times, the World, including Australia, now has far fewer, serious weather-caused events. Australia has ALWAYS had to deal with devastating floods and fires, that’s the nature of our eucalyptus forests (eucalyptus oil). But of course, the application of common sense would ensure we DO NOT BUILD TOWNS ON FLOOD PLAINS AND WE ALWAYS KEEP THE BUSHLAND CLOSE TO OUR DWELLINGS CLEAR OF THE UNDERGROWTH FIRES FEED ON and maintain wide and clear fire trails for easy access.

    1. You clearly have not seen data on deaths and injuries see Informed Consent Action Network and PHMPT Public Health Medical Professionals for Transparency where FDA who are funded by the very corporations they “regulate” and Pfizer tried to bury the data on deaths and injuries for 75 years!
      And the Nuremberg Principles/ Nuremberg Code NEVER to be violated especially when there is conflicts of interest.
      Professor of Law Zimmermann says Government Actions are unlawful.

    Dear Australian Community

    In the midst of your grief and sorrow and utter exhaustion from the devastating effects of the unnatural catastrophic weather events we have just been subjected to, we ask that you pause for 15 minutes to read and digest this message and linked letter and take action.

    This letter exposes the COVID-19 and “vaccine” mandate Fraud and serves as an indictment of Australia’s purported health leaders, those men and women who were and are meant to guide all Australians in living the healthiest life possible … a mission they have failed to perform for over two years now.

    It is a stunning document we ardently request you share everywhere, so our Australian Community can learn and confirm the facts many have come to know or suspect, while gaining strength in the knowledge that hundreds of Australia’s leading doctors, scientists, and academics have also had enough and are fed-up!

    North Coast NSW, Australia, barrister Julian Gillespie is a co-author and signatory to this 52-page Letter, with hundreds of pages of supporting evidence, in collaboration with the Australian Covid Medical Network.

    Here is the letter:

    It comes from the combined effort of Australia’s leading clinical doctors, scientists,
    research academics, health care professionals, overseas specialists, and lawyers working together over many months.

    The material presented has been ‘fact checked’ by the vigorous peer-review process to present the Truth.

    This Letter has also been received by every Federal, State, and Territory MP and Senator, in order to inform them of a variety of scientific Truths being flagrantly ignored by both these health ‘leaders’, and the Ministers responsible for overseeing their conduct.

    We urge you to please take a small amount of time out of your demanding day to call and email your Federal and State/Territory representatives and get them to ask the same Questions, and Demand the same Answers you will see in the Letter.

    Armed now with the facts, the history, and the evidence of a litany of wilful instances of malfeasance, it is now time for the wider Community to say ‘enough is enough’ and call an end to all “vaccine” mandates and false COVID narratives.

    We need our doctors, nurses, teachers, lawyers, transport industry, farmers, military, police, religious leaders, government employees, corporations, business people, ordinary workers, and everyday community members – vaxxed and unvaxxed – to stand together and demand an end to all COVID “vaccine” mandates, ban any further rollout of this experimental gene-based treatment, and demand a full and transparent public enquiry.

    Australia’s future is in our own hands. What you and I do right now, today, will determine what kind of world we end up living in, and the world our children and grandchildren inherit.
    They are trying to divide and conquer us, and silence all opposition. Already, planned protests in all capital cities are being impacted as millions of people struggle with the utter devastation caused by these incredibly harmful and destructive weather events being rolled out across the East Coast of Australia.

    Please understand the gravity of the situation we are currently facing and take action NOW. Thank you and may the Divine Creator’s Light and Love be with us all at this dark and challenging time for humanity.

    Once again, here is the link to the Letter together with supporting Annexures:


    Separate Information >
    The entire system is totally corrupted with systemic and extensive conflicts of interest.
    If the people representing State and Federal Governments have/want ties, associations, partnerships, memberships, sponsorships, revolving doors with any Corporations, Companies, Groups, Government / NG Departments or anyone or any thing whatsoever THEY CANNOT AND MUST NOT PULL THE
    MANDATE CAPER ! No Gunpoint Medicine ever! as this is a most serious crime / corruption/conflicts of interest and the most abhorrent violation of Informed Consent / Nuremberg Principles/ Nuremberg Code on a massive scale and they all must be held responsible and accountable for these atrocious crimes
    against our populations.

  6. Highly respected and competent financial commentator, Terry McCrann, has identified emerging problems and targeting the new treasurer headlines for two articles this week in The Daily Telegraph are;

    “Chalmers dead wrong and also irresponsible”

    “Can we afford to have a trainee treasurer”

    Fasten seat belts and hang on, Wayne’s apprentice holds the controls now.

  7. A new government now sworn in but the AEC is still counting votes?

    “Electoral Commissioner Tom Rogers said … the AEC remains on track to return the writs to the Governor-General on or before 28 June 2022.”
