A “Greg” hunt… Release the hounds!

A “Greg” hunt… Release the hounds!Greg Hunt+

What a sad  excuse for a government we have!

And in said sad excuse for a government, full of incompetent ministers, Greg Hunt stands out as one of the most incompetent; and that’s a big call, as there are just so many incompetents to choose from!

In fact in the incompetent stakes, Abbott has an embarrassment of riches to add to our general embarrassment of this mob and their actions and policies!

And in the spirit of credit where credit’s due, The title and consequently the inspiration for this poem came from one of my fine commenters: Diannaart, who posted the title as a slogan for the March in march placards post, so thanks Dianna, and well done   😀

And so without further adjure….

A Greg hunt… Release the hounds!

Greg Hunt is to climate change

What Brandis is to laws

They are both consummate liars

And legal, and climate whores

He’s the anti environment minister

And rabid right wing runt

Who ignores the proven science

Cos he’s the LNP’s Greg Hunt


He’s the one who singlehandedly

Has trashed our climate cred

With his climate sceptics handbook

And ideology in his head

And with Abbott riding shotgun

On their “Direct Action” plan

Which is nothing more than rhetoric

From this Lying Liberal man


Cos it’s not about our climate

Or the future of our nation

It’s all about the LNP

And their policy constipation

And a suppository of wisdom

Just will not do the job

Cos there is no forward thinking

From this rabid right wing mob


So Greg Hunt was the one they chose

To implement their plan

But the experts rightly all agree

They should flush it down the pan

Cos it won’t reduce emissions

And their targets won’t be met

And it will come back to bite us

Like some rabid right wing pet


But the beasts of crippling climate change

Are baying at the gates

While the Liberal knobs are playing games

And servicing their mates

But Greg is just a member

Of a party with no idea

As they run around in circles

Spouting verbal diarrhea


And they don’t believe in climate change

The Abbott said it’s crap

They think that record rainfall is just

Natures leaky tap

And they listen to lord Monkton

And to Andrew Bolt as well

With their well known “non”-credentials

They promote their right wing hell


But this whole thing’s systematic

Of the Abbott and his style

As he spent the last parliamentary term

Spewing lies and right wing bile

Instead of building policy

He turned his hand to slogans

And now instead of government

We’ve a mob of policy bogans


So while the climate’s changing

And our time is running out

And our farmers deal with flooding rains

In the middle of a drought

And the heatwaves get more frequent

And the winters more severe

Greg the climate sceptic just keeps

Talking through his rear


Par for the course, for the LNP

As they totally ignore the facts

And they think they’ll rule forever

Cos old Rupert’s got their backs

And they lied their way to government

And they haven’t got a clue

Of how to run the country

Or what they’re supposed to do


And the climate respects no-one

But it surely needs our help

And we know that we’ll get nowhere

Under Abbotts climate whelp

And for the sceptics claims they make

They really have no grounds

As the science believers make the call

A “Greg” hunt… release the hounds!




I don’t think these are the “hounds” that either Dianna or I had in mind,  or it might have finished with;  “Release the dog catchers”   😉    but you must admit they’re cuter than the originals   😯   😀

    TT, it is a shame, that they cease listening to others. It is a shame, they cannot open their eyes and look around them. Work it out for themselves.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Fed up, thanks for your comment 😎

      I’m not sure that they ceased listening to others, I don’t think they ever did? 😯

      And sadly the problem is; that they dismiss or ignore the experts… and they then work it out for themselves… and invariably get it WRONG. 😦

      Cheers 😀


  2. Fed up says:

    I wonder where Abbott got the idea, that he was the great liberator. Yes, the great liberator, with only regrets for the worker. Yes, he says he grieves for them.

    Yes, it is tough love and father knows best, when it comes to those on the bottom of the pile.

    I a sure, mo9st would like to see him and put his grieving and regrets aside, remembered he is not an onlooker but PM.

    Time for him to look up the words “good governance”. Yes, and get on with the job.

    It seems the cracks in the patrol notes can be laid at the feet of Howard. Yes, Howard did not believe they needed to only to be of civilian standard, not that of defiance.

    Truthy your poetry is becoming a work of art
    And that`s not putting the horse before the cart
    This turmoil strife and trouble
    That`s all caused by the LNP`s arse farts bubble
    Is making all of us have a greater think
    As to what`s creating all this friggin stink
    But the society of rambling poets
    Would have us all just know it`s
    Nothing but an elaborate stunt
    From that non rabbit catching hound Greg Hunt.


  4. cornlegend says:

    Mate, I’m glad you can put to words what I feel.
    They are having the time of their lives in Parliament now, stupid little snickering, gibs, little giggle fits…………….frigging hell I nearly spewed.
    Hunt really does need to be seen by a psychiatrist.
    It is like he is spaced out all the time., in a little world of his own.
    And don’t get me started on the Speaker.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Cornie, yes mate, it’s as plain as day that they are just playing at government,… so much for the adults? 😯

      I really can’t understand how anyone with an IQ larger than their hat size, can be happy with this mob, and the way they’re carrying on? 😯

      Mate something HAS to be done about Helmet Hair!

      Cheers 😀


      • frontad84 says:

        To Bitchy Bishop they should have said pass
        To appoint her as Speaker was a farce
        But it just goes to show
        How far Liberals will go
        Being all of the sneaky type class

        Parliament today is much bleaker
        Now that Bronwyn Bitch is Madam Speaker
        Always aiding the ploys
        Of the Libs nasty boys
        In their bid to make Labour look weaker.


      • olddavey says:

        Most of them are pinheads.


        • Truth Seeker says:

          Olddavey,thanks for your comments 😀

          Mate, IMHO none of the LNP are the sharpest tools in the shed, in point of fact, as an ex tradie, I can say with all sincerity, they would have to be the bluntest bunch of TOOLS I’ve ever come across. 😯

          Now I do understand that the “Pin” in pinhead represents a tiny little brain which is appropriate for members and supporters, but I do think it’s a tad understated if you get my drift. 😉 Maybe an expletive or two would help? 😀

          Cheers 😀


  5. Fed up says:

    One must not forget, all ministers in this government, including Turnbull have been asked to defend the indefensible. That is a hard task for anyone,


  6. Fed up says:

    His rants abut Hanwke and Keating,. Using comments from Labor people from 12 years ago. Most have no connection to what is occurring today.

    Do his supporters take the time to listen and question the words that come out of his mouth. Do not they notice, the smirks he makes to the advisers box, when he thinks he has said something clever.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      I have to say that the way he enunciates everything, and repeats himself (It’s not worth hearing the first time, so it really offends me that he repeats it) is incredibly condescending and patronising, but I’m sure he got into the habit, whist talking to the party room, cos they’re all bloody thick! 😯

      Cheers 😀


  7. “It’s not worth hearing the first time, so it really offends me that he repeats it”. BINGO!

    Exactly how I have been feeling ‘for so long now it’s not true’ (to quote Led Zeppelin in my madness). Great poem. I fear for the environment under these vandals and they will need to be hounded until they go to ground… or get caught… Owwwwoooo!


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Tinny, thanks for your comment 😎 and Kind words 😀

      Yes, be afraid, this mob are nothing more than environmental and economic vandals, and should be hounded… certainly out of office! 😯

      BTW, Tinny, I started out commenting and posting my poems on sites around the place, until Migs invited me to put one up as post on CW, and after having a few put up, he told me I should start my own blog; and here we are 15 months later 😯

      Keep up the good work 😀

      Cheers 😀


  8. diannaart says:

    You did not disappoint, Truthie. A while since I have been considered a muse. 😀

    Heard on ABC 774 drive program yesterday. Raf Epstein had a climatologist (from BOM and advisor to IPCC – apologies, cannot recall his name) on air to discuss the latest on how climate change has already impacted on Australia in particular as well as trends around the world, included in discussion was how current PPM of CO2 impacted on atmospheric temperatures..

    After the interview, Raf took a call from self-educated layman (he admitted such when Raf asked him for his qualifications) after the man claimed that CO2 levels, although a greenhouse gas (!?) could not possibly affect climate as there wasn’t enough being released into the atmosphere. Raf commented to this ‘knowledgeable’ man that he had completely contradicted the scientist, and sage caller replied, “Well, he would say that, wouldn’t he? He’s a climate scientist”.




    • Truth Seeker says:

      Dianna, thanks for that 😀

      Sadly there are still plenty of idiots around who think they know better than the experts 😯 Abbott included 😦

      Thanks also for the link 😎

      Cheers 😀


  9. consider says:

    You can certainly string those words together Truthy and right on the money each time.
    When are you going to release them in book form,? It would be a best seller.
    It`s got me beat why Labor ,doesn`t dissent from that terrible “Madam” Speakers ruling, and keep doing it. At least it would give them the opportunity of highlighting just how biased and unfair she is.
    But no, they sit there and cop it. I would not and could not allow myself to be humiliated by her and her cohorts like that every day. Bloody wimps.
    Keep up the good work M8. Cheers “smile”


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Consider, thanks for your comment 😎 and kind words 😀

      I have thought about a book of poems, and that’s why I started doing some cartoons to go with them, but It’ll take a while, and I’m still trying to get it together. 😉

      As far as Helmet hair is concerned, she has to go, and the ALP need to adopt Abbott’s attitude of “Whatever it takes”, to get rid of her. 😯

      Cheers 😀


  10. frontad84 says:

    How can it possibly be fair or even legal that the Libs can have one of their own in the Chair ?


    • cornlegend says:

      I was hoping today.
      Tony Burke really seemed to get royally pissed of with Bronnie.
      For a fleeting moment, I thought he might have lead a walkout over the Speakers bias and her inability to perform the job as an Independent Speaker.
      Too bloody incompetent to do the job anytime 😀


      • Truth Seeker says:

        Mate, I thought the same, but couldn’t watch it anymore, so I changed the channel 😯

        To say that she’s incompetent, is to grossly understate her abilities 😉 or lack thereof! 😯

        Cheers mate 😀


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Frontad84, thanks for your comments 😎 and your fine limericks 😀

      Mate I’m not convinced that Bronny is even human? 😯

      Cheers 😀

  12. olddavey says:

    Questions for the Ghunt:

    How many trees are you going to plant, GREG?
    A lot.
    What kind of trees will they be, GREG?
    Wooden ones.
    Where will you get the trees from, GREG?
    The tree shop.
    Where are you going to plant them, GREG?
    In the ground
    When are you going to plant them, GREG?
    What size will they be when they are planted, GREG?
    How long will it take them to grow to an effective size, GREG?
    Who will look after them to make sure they survive, GREG?
    The rain.
    Are you a liar, GREG?
    Not according to Tony.
    Are you an idiot, GREG?
    Not according to Wiki.

    All jokes aside, the Ghunt’s army will be 15,000 strong and they will plant 20,000,000 trees. That’s 1333 trees each if they are all tree planters.
    And assuming they travel by truck to the places of planting and there are 15 toa truck they will need 1,000 trucks.
    15,000 tree planter beds if they stay out overnight.
    15,000 bowls of Crunchy Nut for breakfast daily.
    15,000 sausages and 15,000 slices of bread for lunch daily.
    15,000 Maccas for dinner nightly.
    90,000 cans of beer nightly.
    5,000 dunny rolls daily.
    The list goes on. It’ll be a fucking nightmare.
    I can’t wait.


    • cornlegend says:

      Bugger it,
      Now you have me waiting in eager anticipation for the Green Army to roll into a town near me,
      Do they get sun hats, rain coats, gumboots, tissues, band aids, soap , tomato sauce, and surely more than one sausage sanger each for lunch ,coffee , tea etc?
      Back to your investigation mate


      • olddavey says:

        Cornster, don’t forget the condoms. They’ll need some entertainment after the campfires go out.


        • Truth Seeker says:

          Mate, they won’t use them, cos they can get six months off on full pay under Abbott’s PPL scheme, further blowing out the budget, and once again showing them up for the economic illiterate ideologues that they are 😯

          Cheers 😀


          • olddavey says:

            They won’t get much, I believe the Ghunt is going to use people on newstart.


            • Truth Seeker says:

              Yeah mate, but many of them think that they’ll be paid $75,000 for their successful pelvic thrusts 😯

              Cornie came across some when he was working for the ALP at the last election. 😦

              CheerZzzzzzzz 😉


              • cornlegend says:

                Mate, I sure did come across more than a few who thought pregnancy under Abbott meant a bonanza.
                if they get a Green Army call up, they are in for a shock,
                No workers comp, minimal OH&S, and

                Green Army to be paid less than minimum wage, Environment Minister Greg Hunt confirms
                The Federal Government has confirmed it will pay thousands of young people as little as $300 a week to work on conservation projects as part of its so-called Green Army.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Mate, it now appears that they are going to be more about picking up rubbish, than planting trees 😯

      But however you look at it, Direct Action is a dud policy, and a joke!

      It’s only the dickheads from the LNP that make out that it will work, when all the real experts say it’s a crock, that will do nothing other than redistribute more of the national wealth to a few major emitters and moguls 😯

      Cheers 😀


  13. Fed up says:

    Would it be easier and a damn lot cheaper, for this government to give council grants to do this work?


  14. Truth Seeker says:

    Fed up, it would be easier and a damn lot cheaper, for this MOB, (sorry, but IMHO they don’t meet the required criterion to be called “Government” 😯 ) to just give up the pretence, and let people who actually know WTF they’re doing, start the long and laborious task of fixing their stuff ups, while they are still able to be fixed 😉

    Cheers 😀


  15. bilko says:

    Another fine effort. Forgive me if I am wrong but trees take many years to grow and convert enough CO2 into O2, surly that is way past 2020 reduction committed target dates. And to think hunt wrote a thesis on environmental changes to get his degree?
    If you have not watched “THE NEWSROOM” the final episode of season one where the show calls the tea party the American Taliban which is so close to the noalition attitudes to facts, it is not funny, then please watch it. If I new how to I would link it for you. it is on you tube titled “The Newsroom season finale”


    • olddavey says:

      Just copy the URL into the post and it should be fine.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Bilko, thanks for your comment 😎 and kind words 😀

      Mate yes, you’d imagine that the first priorities would be to protect the trees we have, rather than planting new ones that, as you say, will take years to sufficiently mature. 😯

      Sadly, It’s past my bedtime 😯 , but I’ll see if I can find it in the morning and post it here 😀



  16. Truth Seeker says:

    Morning all 😀

    Here’s the final episode that Bilko suggested 😉

    Cheers mate 😀


  17. Marg1 says:

    Loved your poem Truth Seeker, have sent it around my emails.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Marg1, welcome to my site 🙂 and thanks for your comment 😎 and kind words 😀

      Thanks also for sharing, and I hope you can join our conversations again 🙂

      Cheers 😀


  18. Fed up says:

    I loved it when the speaker huffily said to a Labor MP yesterday, “it is madam to you”

    I do not know what comes to mind of others, when someone demands to be called madam. To me, it is the keeper of a whorehouse.

    I turned into the debate late, but did I get it wrong, when this government once again stifled debate.


  19. diannaart says:

    Have linked the following to the good folk of the Lounge – however, deserves a screening right here, while it is directed at the PM – I believe it applies to all of the Abbottoir.


  20. Gilly says:

    I think we already need a break Truthie. How about a poem from history, from the good days of Julia. A breath of fresh air to reinvigorate..
