When she’s right she’s right

Imagine following statement from a speech to budding government bureaucrats:

… People have to set their own priorities. You can’t have administration of very complex matters from the Canberra bubble. It’s not working and lives are being lost.

… We must push for policies that give formal powers to the sector and remove incompetent, bureaucratic bungling.

The following is what was actually said by Marcia Langton (what was removed from above is bolded below):

Indigenous people have to set their own priorities. You can’t have administration of very complex matters from the Canberra bubble. It’s not working and lives are being lost.

… We must push for policies that give formal powers to the Indigenous sector and remove incompetent, bureaucratic bungling.

When she’s right, she right.  But despite indigenous peoples being amongst the worst affected by the meddling, nothing better to do, know it alls, all Australia’s are subject to incompetent, bureaucratic bungling.

According to reporting in the Mandarin:

Indigenous communities want greater freedom to decide their own priorities and choose how to spend government money.

News flash to the public sector leader readers and contributors of the Mandarin – WE ALL WANT GREATER FREEDOM TO DECIDED OUR OWN PRIORITIES AND TO CHOOSE HOW TO SPEND OUR MONEY!!!

    Gough decided he knew better. Bureaucrats who disagreed were bypassed.

    Let me fix that Mandarin report for you:

    Indigenous communities want greater freedom to decide their own priorities and choose how to spend YOUR government money.

    If elected ,one of the early actions of a government I lead will be the total liberation of indigenius peoples of all colours shapes and sizes from socialist opression. For too long their self inflicted plight gas been exploited by the lowest middle class socialists for political purposes ,this will end . They will all be elevated to citizenship with its rights and responsibilities . No more apartheid for them they will be treated exactly the same a all citizens . The dismantling of the fauxberiginal industry will save a couple of billion dollars a year to retire debt incurred in our name by incompetent career polliemuppets .

    One of the many disappointments of the last few years of federal government has been the failure to do anything beyond the marginal and tokenistic about devolution and decentralisation from Canberra – as to removal of duplication, there seems to have been nothing to speak of.

    These should be high priority issues for the policy agenda of a future Coalition government – it’s not just about the potential (not to be sneezed at) for administrative savings – there are important issues of philosophy here.

    It must be nice to be given other people’s money to spend how you like.

    Sorry, you’ve all got it wrong. THIS is what was actually said:

    Indigenous people as individuals want greater freedom to decide their own priorities and choose how to contribute to the broader Australian community of which they are proud to be a part.

    You people and your jumping to conclusions! Tsk tsk.

    It’s about time aborigines woke up to the socialist left using them as playthings

    Marcia must have read AOC’s Green New Deal….including the communist gem ….”pay people money even if they don’t want to work”…
    Marcia is remarkable for her inability to think of something sensible or say something sensible. Some academic outfit even made her a professor or something similar.
    The last time our aboriginal folk ran things with our money, a good number of them ended up in jail for misappropriation. They complain much, but most of us are over the whinging….it’s all too predicable.
    The solutions to the problems will come when our aboriginal folk, especially the load mouths, get off their arses and recognise that their culture is the root cause of many of the serious problems in aboriginal communities and actually work to change things from within. It’s called self-help. Us white outsiders have done most of the heavy lifting, now it’s really their turn.
    I’m sick to death of Marcia and her whinging coterie.
    That’s my rant for Tuesday…

    When 99.5% of dark-skinned Aborigines in remote areas have foetal alcohol spectrum disorder or other congenital brain damage, multiple health problems which they don’t manage or manage poorly, alcohol or drug or head injury related brain damage and no opportunity to work in a genuine but low-skilled profession thanks to Land Council decisions to not allow development or primary industry, light-skinned pontificating Marcia’s and her ilk are talking nonsense. John Howard and Mal Brough made a realistic start with the intervention but you’ll never win the politics. The Closing the Gap strategy seems to be little more than gummint departments employing urban Abbariginals in jobs that don’t really exist eg education but no one will be actually teaching. Start with defunding Land Councils so they don’t have enough money and have no choice but to allow land use. And don’t forget to feed and water the cattle.
