How are these oafs still in power? That’s the question exercising the country just now. But a deeper one underlies it. Our federal government owes us a duty of care. What should we do if they betray it?

When ex-Victoria police commissioner Christine Nixon committed the sin of dining with friends on Black Saturday, 2009, she was likened to Nero, fiddling while Rome burned. Her career never recovered. Yet our current political leaders, exponentially more arrogant, are fireproof.

Having intensified this crisis with coal, confounded it with politics, ignored the fire chiefs, dumped us in it then vanished for weeks while Australians became refugees in their own country, they’re are still making silly adverts, forcing unwanted handshakes on dissenting adults and bullying their way around the corridors of power. How do they get away with it?

Is it because they’re shameless? Or Christian? Or men? Is it all of the above? Are they funded by the fossil-fuel lobby fighting to retain control with its last, wheezing gasp?
