My good friend and fellow Libertarian Warrior, The Unstoppable Wordsmith, Mr Peter Brun of Sydney, has inspired me with one of his many wonderful limericks.
Peter has given me permission to compliment his words with my art and I have come up with this cartoon.
I hope that you can see what I see and I know that many Libertarians, Conservative or not, can also see,that our "Pandering to the Doctors Wives Turncoat Usurping PM", is now using the 18C/D FIGHT to APPEAR to be fighting for what Australians such as Bill Leak, Peter Brun and you and I, do everyday. All in order to claw back the support of the Liberty loving Conservative base, who are jumping out of the PM's sinking ship and running to the likes of Cory Bernardi and The PHON Party.
This recent Turnbull posturing on the way overdue 18C reform, has only been motivated by the consistently growing internal and external demands to do something about this treacherous legislation, before Bill Shorten (who should be unelectable ) becomes our next Socialist PM. And alas it took the death of Bill Leak to kick our PM into making a public effort to correct this great wrong that infects another of our shameful great wrongs, The AHRC.
His pretence is too little too late for Bill Leak and the others already touched by this direct assault on our Liberty. The PM knew that his words were a performance piece and that the hostile leftist Senate would not allow the amendments, so why did he bother? ..... To appear to do something, of course!
How many more Australians will be silenced by this filthy Act before it is finally removed?
I just don't know but I am sure that I am in likeminded company here, when I say that the fight must never stop!

Prime Minister Turnbull commits to 18C race-hate law reform
I started this toon just before the LNP announcement on 18C/D. Seems not much will change anyway, Wouldn't Bill be shaking his head now.The Senate is still as hostile to this much needed amendment, Xeno, Greens and ALP will block it.
It took the PREMATURE DEATH of our dearest friend Bill, to create enough Political Tension with the Coalition ranks to actually act, which speaks volumes of their House of Representation.
A POX ON THEM BOTH, and although PM Turnbull is now talking the talk, he is clearly only talking, in my opinion.

I'm in Qld at present, it's 5:30 am here. I drove up alone last Friday and it was as I was approaching Harrington, that an old friend and fellow brother in ink called me to tell me that Bill had passed.
Here I was all full of joy and bounce, excited about attending the Marriage of one of my two younger brothers (I never thought that I would see this day ) and then that tragic news.
Bill Leak and I have been friends for over 25 years. He was one of the first professionals in this game that I had ever met and his encouragement and inspiration back then and everyday since, has truly helped to mould me as an editorial artist.
He wasn't sick nor did I know of any heart condition, he led quite a health lifestyle. He had just launched his new book last week and just last year had Married his long time partner Goong. He is a father of two, Johannes and Jasper.
The Australian cartooning profession has lost an immense treasure and one of it's more illustrious sons in Bill Leak.
As most of us know in recent years, Bill's cartoons attracted much controversy and polarized public opinion, but he proved to be resolute and fearless in the application of his craft. A true warrior for Free Speech and against Political Correctness and the Evil that currently permeates and pollutes this World, in the form of Radical Islamic Terrorism.
Between 1987 and 1998, Bill amassed 20 Stanley Awards to his credit, eight of those for Cartoonist of the Year and they remain the benchmark for those who follow in his wake.
So my brother married yesterday and is now on his honeymoon and I have remained awake and working all night to complete this honourable piece for an already much missed mate, a Brother in INK!
God must have given me a tip, because I had no plan on taking any of my drawing equipment with me, not even a laptop BUT as I was just about to leave home, I had an irresistible urge to gather all of my studio needs, just in case an important news event occurred and I need to get a piece done!
Gotta trust that gut feeling, always!

Male and female figures in traffic lights being trialled in Victoria
Sometimes we New South Welsh Men do take our reasonable State Politics for granted. I say this because as we blissfully go about our lives here on the east coast of God's Green Garden that we call Australia, MORE INSANITY keeps on rolling on in poor old Victoria.
This new attack on our Nations' intelligence and eventually its Liberty, via that old weapon of disgust and madness, POLITICAL CORRECTNESS, is not even laughable anymore, because it is actually going into its first week of trials. Aaaaaaaand as usual, The Australian Labor and Greens (THE LEFT) are holding it's reigns!
Next there will be a lobby from the "People Front for the Colour Purple", who are "equally" concerned by the lack of the use of their colour preference on city streets.
