Most people are spending too much time blaming politics of every side. Let's just listen to the people who understand the land and know how to manage it, and start managing it!I agree too.HOWEVER.Its important we understand a few things.The running of our nation, requires resources X.The actual resources we have is Y.Y is actually a much smaller number than X.The results are as follows.Raise Y.Decrease X.To increase Y means that we need to pay more tax or we need better foreign deals.To decrease X, means to neglect things.What the governments and Politics is all about, is trying to minimising raising Y, whilst trying to decrease the gap between Y and X.The problem? They dont spend Y wisely enough as an overt Generalisation. They spend it flippantly on crap that doesnt matter in the scheme of things (like a marriage equality referendum) meaning we have less of Y left over to spend on the real X's that matter.Had the government had a back bone, perhaps there would be more funds available to undertake those tasks such as the burning mentioned by this indigenous fella. The problem? These idiots are too busy feeding from that trough, to actually do it appropriately.This isnt about over politicising things either. Its about ensuring we hold the politicians accountable, and I for one have had a gutful of politicians riding the gravy train for life at the expense of Joe Average, and the next generations fire policies.
