While this was going to be in the vein of an information article, I think unless you have had your head in the sand, you'd know what's generally going on.
The main news around eAus has been whether another deal with Chile is on the cards.
When Binda found out...
During my term this wouldn't have been possible.
Chile didn't like me much, or what I was doing.
However, this is NOT my term.
And, for one final time, we are seeking some peace, and the possibly the beginning of something FAR DIFFERENT for eAus's future, if it does come to pass.
As an "old" eAussie with probably a fair bit of prejudice to any occupier and traditionally to our neighbours.. I for one, have found this idea a bit...challenging.
BUT, I CAN SEE WHY THEY ARE TRYING IT. NO ONE CAN ARGUE THAT.
HOWEVER, I appreciate this is not my future we are talking about here. It is OURS. YOURS
So, I'm keeping calm and my mind open, like you should.
I'm trusting in Greg and crew to come back to Senate and ultimately, EVERYONE, for approval.
Because that's the right thing to do.
Anywhoo, having been away for a few days IRL, you probably know more than I do - but I've been brought across the most recent events...
At the moment, eAus folk are in the pointy end of negotiations.
BUT, I am aware that NO ACTION will be taken without Senate input and approval.
So, keep that in mind, when you see all the stuff around on this issue.
AND, FAR MORE IMPORTANTLY...
In terms of alliances and the like, REMEMBER - that is a matter for a PUBLIC REFERENDUM.
YOU ALL get a say in that.
To this end, I would like to _personally_ remind people to get some perspective on all this.
Irrespectively, you, me, everyone has a say.
You, me, everyone who wants to, will be involved.
So, though I am still of two, three even perhaps four minds on all this, I would like to call for some perspective and some calm. It doesn't help to rip into each other right now.
I've read some of the conspiracy theorists views, and been informed of these either publicly or privately.
To be frank with you, I think some of the people pushing these have their own agenda's.
...and are trying to walk both sides of the fence because they are afraid to come down one way or another.
In the end, though we have the right to agree and disagree how we see fit, in the end I believe Greg is a good person, and has honourable intentions.
In the end, it is worth noting this is probably the last time we will go through this, and keep in mind the alternative will likely mean given the current mix of alignment that we will be in epic fighting soon either way.
So, watch, wait and listen. As soon as more is available it'll be shared.
