The Australian people today find themselves grappling with the fact that the country’s federal politicians have again put their jobs and ambition before the good of the country.
The ensuing spectacle has led many Australians to ask themselves an uncomfortable question: how can Australia, a nation founded by way of blatant theft of land from the Indigenous population, be so privy to backstabbing the people in charge?
“It’s just not in our character to take a position from someone who rightfully holds it,” said Damien McGinty, whose distant relative assisted Captain Cook carry out the genocide of the Aboriginal tribes who had nurtured the Australian soil for thousands of years.
The leadership shuffle has confounded Australians across the right end of the political spectrum. “Taking something that doesn’t belong to us is not who we are,” said a white guy we interviewed.
The identity crisis and soul searching of the Australian population will not be easily resolved.
“I reckon someone should do a National Apology to say sorry for the amount of time I wasted refreshing ABC News today,” said a different white guy we interviewed. “It’s unethical.”
At press time, a movie deal was being developed to tell the story of this treacherous time in our nation’s history, entitled ‘Backbencher-Proof Fence.’
