I read in the Sunday Herald Sun today of the fake apology to Aborigines over the Stolen Generation that has been circulating around the Australian Liberal Party.
“We apologise for giving you free doctors and free medical care and medications, which allows you to survive and multiply so that you can demand apologies. We apologise for giving you law and order which has helped prevent you from slaughtering one another and using the unfortunate for food purposes.
“We feel that we must apologise for building hundreds of homes for you, which you have vandalised and destroyed. ”
“We are only too happy to take back all the above and return you to the paradise of the Outback whenever you are ready.”
Sigh!!! Do the Liberals just not get it? This perhaps just shows how concerned that they really are over the concept of Aboriginal welfare. They probably thought that they were being larrikans and having a joke, but really they were being unsympathetic arseholes. Oh well, they have at least another 6 years in opposition to try to enter the 21st century and work out why Brendan Nelson and his irrelevant party are totally irrelevant.
