Aspen aid… WTF?
Why am I not surprised? 🙄
After weeks of procrastination and lies, about the reasons why Abbott and his LNP have been MIA on Ebola, and loads of pressure from many 1st world countries, friends, allies, and others, asking for Australia to engage, what does the Abbott come up with?
Another way to hand over 20 million of tax payers $’s to a few mates, many of which have question marks (Joining the dots, another fine article by Kaye Lee on AIMN) over their dealings. 😈
So the question is… WHY?
Well, there’s probably many answers to that question, like:
- Because he can!
- Because he will take any and every opportunity to give our money to his mates!
- Because Aspen Medical has donated $$$$’s to the right wing nut-jobs cause… so he owes them!
- Because he likes outsourcing… pretty much everything including overseas aid!
- Because it’s just another rung on the privatisation ladder!
To name but a few? 😉
And if you’re in any doubt bout the path he’s taking us down WRT the likes of Aspen and other “Independent” health service providers, take the time to watch this video about what’s happening to what was once the National Health Service in the UK, and play spot the similarities!

This should serve as a huge wakeup call to all Australians, as to the direction that our “Free, universal health system is being taken, by the rabid right, and I know this to be true, as My sister in the UK has been telling us what’s been happening there for years now, and the bad direction in which they’re headed.
And as an aside, we’ve also just seen “HARPIES BIZARRE” laud “Medusa”
Bishop as… Australian Woman of the year? WTF? 😯
They must have forgotten all the diplomatic stuff-ups? And with her history of involvement in representing CSR against those dying of Mesothelioma, as a result of exposure to asbestos, I’ not sure she even qualifies as… HUMAN?
But then this is just one of many examples of the MSM trying to boost the poll numbers of their “Team Australia”, in the vain hope that they can make this mendacious mob of malicious misfits, palatable… Shit sandwich anyone… Anyone?
But I digress 😯 Surely not?
So why is it that when we are suffering that elusive “Budget emergency”, Including, but not restricted to, Hockey’s $51 billion black hole, we are spending $20 mill on providing health workers and associated logistics via a private “For profit” organisation that will almost definitely take the lions share for administration costs, and then spend the majority of what’s left on local, untrained workers for a pittance, when we have a large contingent of well trained Aussie volunteers, who will receive little or no gov support for their efforts? 😡
And while our highly trained, professional and ready for action “AUSMAT” teams sit idly by, the question is;
Aspen aid… WTF?
