In 2016 South Australia suffered a state wide black out caused by tremoudous storms with gale force winds bringing down the electricity transmission lines from interstate.  (DON’T PRIATIZE YOUR INFRASTRUCTURE)

850,000 customers lost power for up to a week and our state government guaranteed that this couldn’t occur ever again. (DON’T PRIVATIZE YOUR INFRASTRUCTURE)

The Government, in its infinite wisdom decided to accept Elon Musk’s offer to build a battery system in 100 days near Jamestown to provide back up in case this ever happened again. (DON’T PRIVATIZE YOUR INFRASTRUCTURE)

Of course he managed it at a lovely cost of 161 million dollars and the story here folks is …


PS – The same government has just privatized child protection.

You know, I ain’t usually one for following the rules,

But sometimes, just sometimes,

They’re there for a reason, you fools.
Just take roundabouts my friends,

They’re designed to keep the traffic flowing,

Now let’s pause here, you do comprehend?
The other lanes clear, my ignorant friend,

This is your chance to hop on and go,

Before you send me around the bend.
Too dangerous you think and sit still,

You ain’t seen anything close to danger yet,

I’m going to be coming in for the kill.
Exactly where did you get your license again?

Wasn’t a cereal box, was it?

Sorry let me make amends.
You’ve sat there an eon and let me stew,

That, you clodhopping lout it a fatal mistake

Get out of my way, grandma’s coming through
