An Ode To The Bracks Government

Team Brackswatch has received the following submission from a reader. All readers are welcomed to make submissions using the link on the right.

I would like to thank the Bracks government for bringing us the Commonwealth Games.

I would like to thank them for using monstrous amounts of my money to turn a school sports event into a pseudo-Olympic games.

Thank you for thus ensuring that very ordinary Aussie athletes could thus stand tall among the pigmies of the sporting world.

Thanks to all the institutes of sport, who pay, house and feed mediocre athletes to enable them to become good mediocre athletes and not have to resort to actually working for a living.

Thank you to the Aussie athletes who whipped the pants off international powerhouses like Jersey, Swaziland and Banghalawootitoti.

Thanks to the Victorian tax payer, who will end up paying in excess of $500 each to subsidize the games.

Thank you for also taking up the slack and buying the tickets that were sent back when no tourists wanted to come to our party.

So, as I lie here in my little beddie, with a warm and fussy inner glow, I am so glad that $40 million was well spent on an opening ceremony and not wasted by improving our hospital waiting lists, helping the aged or upgrading schools and/or roads.
I can sleep peacefully and happy - thank you.

Oh, I almost forgot....a very special thank you to John Steffenson for carrying on like a drug-crazed pork chop - what a lovely "role-model" for our kids he is.

Sour grapes are always in season when it comes to the ALP . . .

Sour grapes?
More like uncontrolled wasting of tax-payers money, then blaming the federal government for the unacceptable standards of health/education/aged care in Victoria.

We all need to get rid of bracks, or at least give him a scare when it comes to his mismanagement of the Commonwealth Games. Just look at the security costs that have gone through the roof.
At this stage bracks is the lesser of two evils
