The authoritarian takeover of Australia, by Fred Pawle

They’ve turned Australia into a penal colony and its once freedom and fun-loving inmates surrendered without a shot. Of course, Australia instituted gun control some years ago, so the inmates had nothing with which to shoot. From Fred Pawle at spiked-online.com:

People who once thought they’d won the lottery of life by being born in Australia now wake in fright every day to the sudden realisation that they are living in a 21st-century penal colony. The country they once loved has been replaced by something they barely recognise

People who once thought they’d won the lottery of life by being born in Australia now wake in fright every day to the sudden realisation that they are living in a 21st-century penal colony. The country they once loved has been replaced by something they barely recognise.

One response to “The authoritarian takeover of Australia, by Fred Pawle

  1. Thank you Fred!!!
    Finally, a fellow Aussie from my generation. You have no idea what a relief it is to hear familiar terms spoken in a way only Aussies understand. I would so love to contact you on a private site, if there is any such thing these days, I read everything I can find from america on the internet, but there is virtually nothing in the way of information available on the home front. If we don’t give our country a wake-up call right now, it will be too late.Lives are at stake!.
