Mt. Gambier : Shadow Cabinet Comes to Town

Posted on: November 19, 2009

Shadow Cabinet used to mean something. It kept the bastards honest but when more than 2000 questions remain unanswered in the Parliament it is losing its relevance. Shadow Cabinet then merely describes an old wardrobe with a door on it placed somewhere out under a tree in the shade. How sad. I wish it were not so and was real and dynamic. Something of value and purpose that attracted the disenchanted , the robbed , the cheated , the disadvantaged and those who have no voice for their share. Unless the Opposition updates its image and starts breathing fire and passion for the community instead of the pedestrian ”level playing field” to the present administration, there is unlikely to be any change. The morality of the Government serving only its tenure is evident, and its financial incompetence more so, for having “Rode Into the Valley of Debt” these past 7 years. Sad, and sad to say the Opposition appears to be sitting waiting for the wall to fall down to gain Government by default. Sad, that an opportunity to make a difference is ignored by just waiting. .
