Watching 4 Corners right now "Does money buy political favours? Sarah Ferguson investigates."
I don't know about everyone else, but it really grates on me the seedy goings on presented here (not that we didn't know already).
We all trade in the corporate world, and, hopefully benefiting from the way the "big wigs" manipulate the system - but do we really think corporate dollars determining our Government Representatives is really the best way to go?
Am I being over sensitive to the current scandals with Woolongong Council, and questioning all my democratically elected Government Officials, or should I just shrug my shoulders and think - "well that's the way it's always been"?
Funny how most of the councillors, in my opinion, don't look all that much trustworthy than some of the residents in our prisons.
Maybe I have been listening to 2GB too much. Maybe, I should also be careful watching Media Watch as well - it all gets quite depressing - the amount of political and media manipulation we have to suffer.
I am sure that there are others here who are rolling their eyes in disbelief that I have taken so long to realise how money buys the Government, but there are probably others here who feel like commenting .....
