Can we really trust Indonesia or our Pacific neighbours? In 2017-18, the Australian Government will provide an estimated $70 million to Vanuatu and $357 million to Indonesia. Much more money is available for those who are tutored to say they fear global warming.
Those are just base amounts as regular cyclones attract far more dollars in aid and Vanuatu is equally administered by the French, therefore the Nivans refuse to say what the Franc contribution is!
Whatever it is, it is unaccounted for and is wasted on the tribe of white hating Nivans who offers the most public holidays at elections. Nivans are averse to work and the winning party gained government with a promise of an extra “Children’s Day” and a “No Smoking Day”. Then they get all of our holidays and all of the French holidays… no-one gets a chance to work and no-one cares as long as the aid largesse continues. It’s madness!
Australian Foreign Minister, the Stick Insect, has personally apologised to her Indonesian counterpart, Dr Marty Natalegawa, for Australian ships having breached Indonesian territorial waters in asylum seeker operations. Hmmm, apologised. For bloody what? When will we stop apologising for defending our sovereign borders?
Joko was annoyed that his corrupt military wouldn't share the few lousy million in cash from Morrison to allow our Navy to return the illegal immigrant boats back to port.
That was Abbott’s successful idea that saved us around another $15 billion a year.
PM Howard threw an extra $1 billion at their 2005 tsunami disaster. Yet the Indonesians boast the greatest number of billionaires in the world’s fourth most populous (and Islamic) country.
Coal is one commodity that has launched many of Indonesia’s rich blokes into billionaire status. It matters not that we compete with Indonesia for coal markets.
Since the year 2000 Indonesia’s corrupted economy has out performed all in south-east Asia and Oxfam reports that Indonesia's four richest men are now worth as much as its poorest 100 million who, on average, if they can get a job, earn less than $3 a day.
But on one humid morning in Indonesia, an Islamic Joko chimp swung down from its tree and decided in a light bulb moment, amidst wild applause from all the other monkeys, to execute everyone on death row.
Unfortunately executions have always involved mostly non-Joko monkeys from foreign jungles. You see, executing domestic chimps upsets local voting patterns, whereas foreign infidel monkeys aren’t able to vote and, according to the Islamic Jungle Book, have no right to be alive anyway.
Of course Indonesian Jihadist monkeys have special dispensation with some found guilty of making bombs that killed a hundred infidel monkeys walking free.
Joko chimps like to project an endearing herbivore image but their favourite pastime, when no one else is around, is to hunt down, kill and devour peace-loving, halal certified, infidel, Colobus monkeys from Australia. And Australia, whose pleas for leniency are always ignored, still never miss gifting them each and every dollar in foreign aid.
I don’t recall any assistance coming from Indonesia during Australia’s regular flood crises. Not even a “get better” card
The most envied Australian Government portfolio is Foreign Affairs. It must be lovely travelling the world in first class everything with a sack full of borrowed money to be chucked at everything that smiles at you.
"I wonder what the female equivalent of 'dickhead' is?"
Tanya Plibersek had the shadow portfolio until it was discovered she thought Africa was a country. Julia Gillard as PM really wanted Foreign Affairs but flew in Bob Carr as a reward for organising the numbers to oust Rudd, yet still she couldn’t help leaving a few million tip at every lunch she attended. And she would leave up to $500 million on the table if it was a women’s development function.
Oh well, now that Shorten and Turnbull have agreed not to carry on about our debt and deficit, it is never mentioned… these days there’s not a single question in QT… now gay marriage and gas is all the go. Bloody hell!
But fair dinkum, at the risk of spoiling the Stick Insect’s fun, our Foreign Aid levels need reform because it is now we who are the indigent nation, it is now we who can’t afford an RET crippled energy market, it is now we who must suffer the worst of damaging Green-GetUp ideology without a whimper.
It is we who look likely to have an “endearing” PM like Shorten who will spend us back to a union-administered stone age and it’s the gangrenous Greens who are flat out lying their way to a yes vote on gay marriage.
Inequality in Indonesia is reaching crisis levels yet no-one is suggesting marriage inequality should be addressed…. I wonder why.
We are now the poverty stricken nation that needs foreign aid from other far better-off nations, at least until we can get back on our feet,
… but with our leadership crisis, we’ll be flat on our arses for a long while yet.
