    Thanks David, depressing to say the least; but a great way to highlight this government’s focus – ‘its all about the numbers, but in the wrong bloody direction!’

    RG… ‘its all about the numbers, but in the wrong bloody direction!’….In times past, this pack of jackels would have been executed for treason….Too bad we’ve become too “civilised” to take affirmative action to protect our birthright anymore…Or too well brainwashed to even know what treason looks like anymore…
