The Dance with Lance. Is it Commercial-In-Competence?

Posted on: January 15, 2010

Lance Armstrong is back for the Tour Down Under and is to be on a ride with hundreds of enthusiasts for the promo. Great to have something else to enjoy other than the bluddy football and the drones who do the cricket. But, as always, there is another dimension.

This Government paid for the Armstrong Team to fly in a private Jet from Hawaii for the event and that itself is commendable. None would argue the need for a break. While not wishing to be a sour grape when we need something more than the cricket, the ruling junta is not interested except in diversions. Ancient Rome did the same to appease the discontent by the spectacle of blood and gore in the Coliseum to hide its incompetence. This Government is the same and in the process has separated itself from the community.

We are all shareholders of the revenue yet over 2000 questions, most relating to the spending of public funds remain unanswered in the Parliament. Are these Commercial in Confidence? Even the Dance with Lance is blocked by an arrogant assumption that the shareholders are not entitled to know the cost to bring Lance to Adelaide. “Commercial in Confidence” was the pathetic response to questions of the cost, like an educated parrot and yet, the junta is still unable to collect over $174 million in unpaid fines from over 500,000 social delinquents.

I suppose questions about the failure to collect are Commercial In Confidence too. More like Commercial InCompetence.
