The Greens prepare comprehensive plan to end marginalisation in society

Political correspondent for serious fun issues

10 February 2011

In the face of the spreading popular revolutions in many different parts of the world seeking social justice and end of poverty and marginalisation, we understand that a comprehensive plan to end marginalisation in Australia once and for ever is prepared by the Australian Greens. The plan was leaked today to our newspaper and to other Australian media outlets. The plan consists of many aggressive steps suggested by the Greens party. The Greens party is even threatening of withdrawing from government and let it collapse if Labor would refuse to accept these “highly progressive” steps.

Bob Brown, the Greens leader, told us that the plan will see the end of marginalisation as we know it for the last centuries.

“The plan starts with proposed bill not only to legalise the drugs, but putting all kind of illicit drugs on PBS. By doing this, marginalised groups will have access to very cheap drugs that would keep them unconscious and so they would lose all feelings of being marginalised” said Bob Brown in his comments to our newspaper.

We know that addicted marginalised people will not have time to be engaged in employment to pay for the high rent, high power bills, high traffic fines and high life expenses. To address this, we understand that the Greens are proposing another bill. The bill will be introduced to legalise prostitution everywhere in the society. Any very poor marginalised person can start selling their bodies in their own residential areas, at schools and universities, in streets and even in parks and shopping centres.

By doing this, marginalised groups can forget about their marginalisation in very quick and easy way. All marginalised groups will be busy either sniffing drugs or selling their bodies to collect enough money to pay for increased cost of living. So there will be no time to feel of marginalisation.

In the face of expected high rate of unwanted pregnancies, the Greens plan is proposing to both promote abortion and educate the population about the benefits of abortion to society.

After effectively reaching a society of mainly drug addicts and prostitutes, the only unresolved issue in the society will be the gay marriage.

“In a society with no trace of any feeling of being marginalised and money is flowing at high rate by selling own bodies, the only issue to be addressed would be the issue of same sex marriage. For this, we are proposing bill to legalise same-sex marriage to end the final straw of marginalisation in the society”

When asked about the problems that would be resulted by such high controversial bills, Mr Brown expressed his believe that none of addicts or prostitutes will be conscious enough to realise that there are problems resulted.

The government also would have enough revenues from flourishing drugs-producing companies and brothels to fund rehabilitation centres and medical institutions.

“You should take into account that we will also close all jails and correction centres and save their budgets. Such money would be enough to fund treating institutions, in combination with tax revenues” stressed Greens leader.

The Greens leader and colleagues will launch this important plan in one of the inner city brothels. The launch will include free illicit drugs for each attendee, as according to invitation sent to one prostitute. The Greens members will also distribute kits titled “Simple steps to fight marginalisation by drugs and sex”.

It is unknown if the Greens leader and his colleagues are living in the same country on the same planet we are living in.

We welcome any comments to pass it to the Greens leader to give him real situation of deteriorating racism, Islamophobia and many kinds of discrimination in the society. This would help the Greens come back to earth.

When my rooster is more dangerous than violating building and rental laws: Open letter to Auburn council

Dear Auburn councillors
I bought 2 chickens and their rooster few months ago. After few days, Auburn council rangers visited my place. They told me that my rooster is so noisy and a neighbour had complained to the council about this. They asked me to remove the rooster ASAP.

Not only I complied in the same day. But I was very happy. The council was so quick to respond to rate-payers complaint, though it is very minor, and asked me to comply with noise “legislation”.

Not only this. I was also proud of my council and its stuff, especially the rangers.

But this pride and happiness evacuated pretty immediately.

Few neighbours, including myself, complained to the council about illegally built and rented garage in the backyard. The garage is not registered with the council, either as garage or for-rent-granny. Several complaints were lodged to the council, started from 1 April 2010. The complaints were repeated several times, especially after the garage was visited several times by local police for different matters. Several times the garage was used a hub for alcohol and drug abuse of large numbers of young people. At other times the police came to arrest criminal who seek refuge in the garage with his cousin living there.

The quiet street became theatre for police visits, chase and investigations.

And the council was impotent to implement its laws on this tiny garage, its owner and its tenant.

The rangers came to inspect the garage. They decided that it is illegal to be rented. They talked to its tenant. Then they talked to the real estate that manages it. And they even talked to its owner.

They issued letter to “cease the use of the outbuilding”. Then the council issued another letter to the owner to “clarify the non-compliance of the Council’s Order”. But nobody complied with these letters.

All these communications happened during the last year. But so far nothing had been achieved.

The tenants are still using illegally the garage, against the council order.

Now let me ask you the following important question: how come you were very quickly to implement the noise legislation in dealing with my rooster noise, but you cannot implement laws about building and renting “outbuildings”?

Why the rangers were enthusiastically responding to the complaints against my rooster? They visited my place twice in one week. They also called me several times to make sure that my rooster is not living in my backyard anymore.
But so far there was only one visit by rangers made to the illegally built and rented garage.

Let me assure you that my rooster was not very dangerous on himself or others. Maybe he was very noisy to highly sensitive very close neighbour. That is all.

But living in illegally built and rented garage is more dangerous, on its tenants and neighbours. The garage is lacking all safety measures needed for any building. It is also unhealthy to live in. And most importantly, its tenants are usually irresponsible youth who has problems with law-enforcement agencies. Hence it is very clear that they are dangerous on my family and the families living in the street.

The other vital question here: why you have authority to evacuate pretty immediately tenants or animals from dwellings in the council area, but you are so slow and hesitant to do so in this case? Has anything to do here with favouritism and even more?

As law-abiding residents and rate-payers we need either swift action on this case. Alternatively we need strong explanation of the reasons for slow response and lack of action.

We do not want to start thinking that there is something fishy deals related to tribalism and even further dirty deals to allow the law breaking to go on.
