The Dog’s Bollocks

Truth is like a dog’s bollocks – pretty obvious if you care to look.

Liberty demands justice

Much is being said in ozblogistan tonight about the release of Dr. Haneef, the culpability of the government and its ministers, the devastating effects on Haneef’s family and future prospects, a compliant MSM, and the mobs rising up with cricket bats to vote the bastards out. And yet again the lax cats are strangely quiet. For the libertarian this must be an excellent case study of what happens when you manipulate the legal system for political gain while sacrificing justice in the undue process. And here I was thinking that nice Mr Andrews was a good Christian man!

Some gold moments from Ken’s excellent Beneath contempt at the Road to Surfdom.

“I reckon Howard’s mob misjudged this thing from the get-go and a lot of people are very pissed off, first at their transparent duplicity and then at their gutless refusal to accept any accountability.”

“Competent Government? Not likely. More like amateur night at the Dixie Bar and Grill.

And these bozos expect people to vote for them?”

“So now the good Doctor can return to his Unit of the Gold Coast that has now been relet to another. He wasn’t got a work permit. he hasn’t got any funds. He has an aeroplane ticket that past its used-by-date.

And this is justice?

Andrews and Ruddock along with Keelty and Bugg must go. I assume that the Rodent has already gone; just a political corpse swinning in the breeze”

“Haneef should be receiving some kind of compensation. His career in this country has been destroyed and his name sullied. I don’t know what it will be like for him in India, but as far as this country is concerned, we OWE him big time.

If Howard doesn’t have the decency to correct this injustice, first of all by reinstating his visa, then it just further underscores why this government needs to be given the boot.”

“Just what the hell has happened to this once great country, now morally bankrupt? Our reputation around the world stinks like a rotten banana republic naturally would, we have inflamed the entire Muslim world unnecessarily, we have off-sided all of Asia who once tried to welcome us, and we’re hated around the Pacific Rim. While we still think we’re top of the pops, ask anyone overseas how they perceive invasion-addicted Australia today: probably as anyone would view a sewer, I suppose.”

Perhaps the Islamic Fundy Terrorist situation is worse than we think…perhaps it’s not…but the kind of backlash the Federal Govts., Federal Police & such are getting is what comes w/ the PEOPLE losing TRUST in them. And letting a profit seeking, corrupted media & other Enablers define the issues & set the agenda.”

“Is it not sad to see a persons life, I suggest probably ruined , also the hopes of that persons family in maybe what they were thinking of as a new future, by the likes of Howard,Ruddock, Andrews and Downer, plus.
Just a red wine question, how many lives have Howard, Ruddock and etc; in the carrying out of their ‘entitled’ positions, saved in relation to the medical profession,and socially aware groups.
Well, I guess none, I also guess that a lot of misery and death has occurred in the sheer self interest of the last eleven years. The last eleven years in Australia have been , I was going to say , embarrassing , for some of us, I now say that after the last few days, ok, last few months, for our position and consideration in the rest of the world, this mob has to go, Howard is certain he has made his mark,well, Howard, for most of us and for most of the rest of the world , it’s a smear.”

“From what I heard, from his lawyers, there will be no deals done. He will not leave the country until his name is completely cleared.
And correctly so, as you need to be able to travel, anywhere, without fear.

He wants to be a doctor and physician. He needs his record completely sound to continue his work and education. A fairly reasonable ‘ask’ given the bullshit he has been forced to deal with.”

“There must be accountability for this, and I don’t just mean this bastard government at the ballot box – they deserve to be annihilated, regardless of the Haneef case. Much as I’d be happy to see Keelty and Bugg forced out, we all know that they are not the real villains. Culpable as they are, they are merely the latest in a long line of government officials to have been bludgeoned into behaving in the way in which they believe their corrupt political masters expect. The stupid bastards still haven’t learned that, not only will they not be thanked for it, as soon as it all turns to shit, they’ll be abandoned by those same masters so fast they won’t even see it coming.

No, there’ll be little satisfaction in the dumping of a DPP or an AFP Commissioner. Ken is right, there MUST be Ministerial accountability. Since we all know they won’t go willingly, the challenge is now for the MSM to hound them out. If this isn’t enough to galvanise them into serious action, whatever would be?”

And a veritable angry mob has gathered at Blogocracy.

I guess it will undermine the effectiveness of their next attempt to woo the voters “we have uncovered a terrorist plot to blow up all the world leaders” at APEC in Sydney. Bugger!

    Actually, Bugg stepped in to examine things himself, a poisoned chalice he could have left to others, things got sorted quickly after that. Still, he’ll probably be the main one to take the fall.

    What’s the bet the JWH regime and the Murdoch press come out crowing the release shows that our processes are in perfect working order and the lawyers and lefties were being paranoid. Janet Albrechtsen (?spelling?) will probably do another dose of pure vitriol.

    At least Bugg had the integrity to deal with it before his retirement next week.

    Rod Cameron also suggested last night that the Howard government wouldn’t be able to play that card again before the election.
