Trust Me

Trust Me

Many decades ago now, after being relieved of some serious coin by a person fond of saying “trust me” I came to the conclusion that the sort of person who says that does so because they are unwilling or unable to show you evidence that what they want you to believe is true.

No recent events have operated to dissuade me from that conclusion. If anything, time, events and others’ experience has validated my conclusion.

Look around and make up your own mind about it. Don’t trust my conclusion, look for yourself.

The current campaign around the Voice is a more than adequate example of Albo saying don’t worry about the details, trust me.

I wouldn’t trust him as far as I could throw him!

As a matter of fact, having some insight into the details, intent and machinations behind the Voice I would put it in the category of what most politicians do, a sleight of hand, black magic trick.

Same as the last three and a half years of propaganda.
Or, “scientific consensus”. That’s when the majority have been bought.

Vote No!

Vote No
What would you call a PM who on the one hand says he wants to empower some with a Voice while on the other is legislating to suppress our right to counter the government’s dis and misinformation by speaking truth that disagrees with the narrative?
I know what I’d call him.

Our PM Is A Liar

Our PM Is A Liar

I am fairly frequently reminded of the old joke, “How do you tell when a politician is lying?”

“His lips are moving.”

This guy expects us to vote for the Voice when he claims to have never read the 26 page Uluru statement?

The same guy who has pending misinformation legislation that penalises anything said or written that goes against the government narrative but excludes the government and media, allowing them to lie with impunity?


What does he think we are, idiots? Spoiler alert, yes, he does.

the Voice – The Crux Of The Matter

As I was walking home this morning I reflected on the points I made about the Voice in that infographic I posted overnight. If you missed it you can see it here:

I am always trying to distill my messages to the irrefutable simplicity.

One of the most important lessons I have learned this lifetime is to evaluate relative importances, to ‘sort the wheat from the chaff’ as goes the old saying.

It occurs to me there is a sea of data and an ocean of opinion about the Voice but one indisputable datum stands head and shoulders above all others.

That fact is that we are being conned.

How is that indisputable?

Because it comes directly from the mouth of Anthony Albanese. Now granted, he is not honest enough to call it a con but no conman ever alerts you in advance to the details of the sting.

This article reports:

“Details about a proposed Indigenous Voice to parliament will not be known before a referendum on the issue, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese says, arguing he does not want a repeat of the failed 1999 republic referendum.

“Albanese, speaking from the Garma festival in Arnhem Land, said the detail of the Voice would be left to federal parliamentarians to debate rather than let it be a central element of a proposed referendum…

“…There have already been calls for more details about the Voice, including from Coalition spokesman for Indigenous Australians Julian Leeser who says while the referendum question was a positive start there were many details to be explained.

“But Albanese said he wanted to avoid the situation caused by the republic referendum where people may have disagreed with one element within the proposed model and were then urged to vote no.”

“One of the things I’m trying to avoid here … [is] people looking for all of the detail and saying well, if you disagree with these 50 clauses, if you disagree with one out of the 50 but 49 are OK, vote no. We’re not doing that. We’re not doing that. We’re learning from history,” Albanese said on ABC television on Sunday.

Well, that’s all very well, but would you sign a contract without having the opportunity for you or your solicitor to read it?

What if one of the 50 clauses is to cede sovereignty over your house and land to a new council with no redress?

Or take a percentage of your income or spending as reparations?

Shouldn’t you have the right to reject the whole thing over that one clause?

The whole idea of a referendum is so that Australians can decide on issues of importance, like changes to the Constitution. How can we make an informed decision if we don’t know on what we are deciding?

Albo continues, “We’re appealing to the goodwill of the Australian people and as I said, the Australian character as I see it.”

In my opinion that means he takes us for fools who can be easily manipulated emotionally to do something that is logically not in our best interests.

I think it’s time to show him we are smarter than that and vote “No”.

the Voice – Before You Vote

The Only Graph You Need To Know


Once harm has been done, even a fool understands it. – Homer. the Voice is worth understanding BEFORE harm has been done!

I recommend you play The Who’s ‘We Won’t Get Fooled Again’ in the background while reading this:

You may recall the last time a large media campaign was run in this country. The one to get us all on board with the Covid agenda the government was running.

What you may not know was that every single thing the government said was a lie. If you care to check it out I documented more than 40 of them here:

What makes you think that this time with the Voice will be any different? If you need more proof that the government would not like to be restricted to telling only the truth, look no further than the proposed misinformation bill currently available for comment. Penalties are proposed for saying or writing anything that contradicts the official story. The two parties excluded from complying? The government and the media! The most blatant hypocrisy I have ever seen.

We Already Have An Indigenous Body That Fulfills The Stated Aims Of “the Voice”, It’s called the Coalition of Peaks:

Albo admits to not even having read the 26 page Uluru Statement yet calls Dutton a liar for saying what is in it:

Albo refuses to provide detail of how the Voice will work because he does not was a repeat of the failed 1999 referendum. In other words if we knew the details of what he proposes there is no way we would vote yes. Makes sense to keep it secret! He’s not just selling us a pig in a poke! He’s telling us what is in the bag is not a pig!

No To the Voice

I stand with those Aboriginals and other Australians who accurately recognise the duplicity involved and do not wish to be a party to this racial divisiveness let alone what skulduggery he is not admitting to.
