The Numbers Are The Numbers

04 January 2013
They say all art comes from suffering. And there's no suffering like listening to Liberal and National party politicians speak. In the tradition of Make The Pie Higher, I humbly present this simple poem compiled entirely of quotes from the LNP.


What the housewives of Australia need to understand,
The numbers are the numbers.
These people are not fit to government the economy,
It’s by no means the main task of government.

Why not ask electricity consumers to pay more
We are prepared to have an ETS.
Climate change is absolute crap.
That's the fluffy stuff that sits in the ceiling.

There are even some creepy people out there,
People like to admire the athletes for their physiques,
That is a very reasonable thing.
Tony Abbott was more than happy to keep them going.

I think I have reasonable good people skills.
Just because a person is sick doesn't mean that he is pure of heart.
Jesus didn't say yes to everyone,
We can’t abolish poverty.

I can't promise that I won't continue to embarrass people,
We are not going to make promises that we cannot keep,
It would be folly to expect that women will ever dominate.
Gillard won’t lie down and die! Gillard won’t lie down and die!

  1. Love the new template, it adds style to the clumsy LNP quotes beyond what they deserve.
