    Been the mot de jour ever since Kevin 07.

    James Bovard came up with an apt description- reverse slave auctions, where the slaves vote for the kindest master, or the one who promises to be a reformed character this time. The battered voter syndrome.

    The Kakistocracy of Veneztralia. I like it.

    We may even get a decent national anthem to go with it.

    The battered voter syndrome.

    The powers that be in the Liberal Party thought their base would just suck it up. Pay their m’ship fees, hand out how to votes etc. What contempt they must have for the membership.

    Rum, Sodomy and the Lash.

    The New safe Anthem for our New Rum Corp penal colony.

    Once the property Ponzi unwinds and the Aussie dollar finds it is only supported by the honourable word and the integrity of the shorten looting cartel, rum will return to its rightful place as the trading currency of choice.

    Comrades.

    We could get John Williamson to Whine the new anthem, he’s a lefty.

    It’s called “projection”.

    Michael Trumble gave his NEG legislation to Labor before giving it to his own party, and 47 of them [plus Trumble himself] still voted for him as their leader.

    How can you expect people like that to understand anything but abject serfdom?

    Kakistocracy aka shithole.

  13. Habib

    Which is what we have at every level. And most corporate boards.

  14. RobK

    Kakistocracy aka shithole.
    Kakcracy.

  15. Rusty of Qld

    When I was a kid the word KAK was a slang word for shit i.e. he kaked himself.
    What an appropriate description of the Turnbull/Shorten government, a Kakhole.

    Rum, Sodomy and the Lash. Great album, politics is still doing it to us.

    In Canberra we celebrate each year the year of the monkeys
