The boys at MB are doing EZFKA a big favour today by donning their shining armour and bravely running off to man the EZFKA walls. Funnily enough, while they think themselves hyper-rational actors,they have no conscious comprehension of what they are doing. That is, of course, the EZFKA way.
In a post partaking in the polemic, the boys declare”King Smut must abdicate throne”:
Of course, the PM abdicating in favour of a Lib successor is precisely the route to head if one wants the best chances of continuing with the status quo. Why? Because this would be a planned and orderly transition of power which will enable the EZFKA leaders to keep their eyes fixed on key EZFKA KPIs.
One has to be an ignoramus or an idiot not to understand what “forewarned is forearmed” means. And that’s what we’re dealing with here.
Indeed, this has been the exact experience many many times over (if not EVERY time) that the MB boys have called for political change in general, or someone’s head in particular. All they ever get is a change in the window dressing as the EZFKA (EZFKNZ, too) juggernaut continues in the planned course.
The blokes never learn.
The EZFKA is a finely tuned machine, but it does need to be piloted and tended carefully.
The only plausible chance of changing course of the EZFKA is if something distracts the pilot for long enough to take his eyes off the map, or distracts the engineers long enough from stoking the fire that it hits stall speed. (This, by the way is why the COVID crisis ran over the EZFKA like water off a duck’s back – all hands were on deck and neither the pilot nor the engineers were napping or distracted; quite the opposite)
The current sexual intrigues could be a distraction of this kind. If allowed to fester and turn into a factional campaign of plotting and counter-plotting, it could be something that consumed the attention of the current crew long enough for a course deviation to occur.
if MB gets its wish – all you’ll get is a planned transition from the current pilot to a new pilot (who will wear a pink hat!) and, having had experienced this catharsis and climactic release, the EZFKA will continue on its current course.
you won’t have Mavis standing at the ballot box thinking “I’d rather vote for the bloke that will take away my franking credit refunds than vote for this mob of rapist protecting wankers.”
Have fun standing the high ground MB! EZFKA thanks you and your sacrifice!
