Merry Christmas to all! Ron wrote this festive poem as a way of expressing just how he feels about politics at this special time of the year.


Here we go again.

A strategy for this,

a strategy for that.


Most of our ‘thought leaders’,

spend their time,

talking through their hat.


What we really need,

is to focus on

courage, conviction and character.


This gave our Western Civilization

that special edge,

lifting millions to a new level.


The Enlightenment thinking,

Isaac Newton and friends,

blazed the trails.


Before Entitlements and Victimhood

ran us

off the rails.


In Canberra, this week,

I was told Canberra

is our National Capital.


“Wrong!” I said.

It’s merely

our Political Capital.


I define Canberra as

200 square kilometers;

surrounded by reality!


Canberra is where they

work hard to

destroy our Triple A Credit Rating.

It’s ‘out there’.


You are the people

working to save it?

You the creators,

will rescue us,

from political seduction.


So, let’s drink a festive toast.

To the explorers, our industry

and our great producers.


 Ron & Jenny Manners – December 2016
