We must face reality. As the record will show we do not really need politicians to run this nation. What is obviously essential in the past and still is present is money. Our politicians are not fit for purpose as any group here could run our nation by relying only on the present dwindling profits from our natural resources.

Without this flow of easy money, our politicians haven’t a clue of maintaining this nation as is expected in a democracy. We are now seeing the turning point in our political structure by the spitefulness and deliberate attacks of racism that have become an everyday event here within the boundaries of our Parliament.
