Motorists on euthanasia and public housing

By johnboy - 19 September 2012 14

When you get an email at 10pm from Chic Henry holding forth on euthanasia and public housing the mind fairly boggles.

But it appears the two are unrelated.

Firstly Chic wants higher standards for and from public housing tenants:

The policy of the Motorist Party will be to improve the standards of properties within the ACT Housing Trust portfolio to the highest in the country by not only ensuring property standards are improved and maintained but also that ACT Housing tenants meet community and tenancy agreement standards. Mutual accountability will form the basis of a new approach to management of Housing Trust properties.

The Motorist Party will implement a quick response, affirmative action plan such as a five man team, utilising the existing ACT Sheriff Service, working in conjunction with the Australian Federal Police to deal with and evict disruptive and law breaking tenants. The intention of this policy is to legally enforce action against the 1% of problem tenants, who cause issues with and for the 99% of tenants who assimilate well and do the right thing by each other.

We hope in no way related is a policy for a euthanasia centre in the ACT:

The Motorist Party believes voluntary euthanasia would be well accepted by many in the Canberra community. It should be the right of any individual to have their life ended humanely so they can pass with their dignity intact and remove months or years of hopeless suffering when reaching the desperation point of a terminal illness.

The Motorist Party proposes a team of four medical specialists to make a decision based on only the wishes of the patient themselves and not to be influenced by family or friends. The necessary facts of having the patient’s affairs in order would be taken into account. The wishes of the patient would be respected and considered first and foremost, unless that person is deemed, by the medical examiners, to be not of sound mind and incapable of making decisions for themselves. If that was the case, the family must be consulted and would assist in making the decision.

The Motorist Party would also like to see a euthanasia centre established, this sounds a little macabre but when hospices first came about we thought the same and now they are a very accepted and highly valued part of our society. Such a centre would be a place where family and friends can come together to celebrate the life of their loved one and say their final goodbyes in privacy. The patient would then pass in comfort in the hands of medical specialists.

What’s Your opinion?

The party hasn’t told us exactly where they’re going to house the 1%. Evict them but then they have to have shelter somewhere or the government will be breach of the human rights act (not sure where but some do gooder lawyer will find it).

There are some Housing ACT properties reasonably far out of the city which could be utilised as accomodation for the worst families.

When I worked at Housing ACT I often asked why are the real filth scum allowed to live near decent people. One scumbag can ruin a whole block of flats as has happened in many Housing ACT complexes. In answer I was told not to ask.

Since they are the only party to support euthanasia I find I have to vote for them.

Currently in Australia we force terminally ill people to die slowly with “palliative care”. And palliative care involves not treating things like infections with antibiotics or any other drugs that would keep you alive. Try imagining what it would be like to die slowly choking of a chest infection (while dosed up on morphine so your relatives don’t see how disgusting the process really is).

And some people reckon euthanasia is barbaric.

I am generally in agreement with these policies.

Why should ACT ratepayers have to finance the rebuilding of Gov rental properties trashed by this scum. I would hope that the realisation of the dificulties in getting further accommodation would result in a change of attitude by these people.

Fully support the policy on euthanasia.

The housing policy is a bit rough and ready, but it stands a better chance of achieving something than the current approach of appeasing the culprits and moving the victims on.

… until people work out how to manipulate the system to get rid of people they don’t like.

Hilarious. Instead of donating your body to science post-euthanasia, you can donate it to SummerNats and they can use you as a speed bump or crash test dummy. Wake up Chic, you are a one issue party, you won’t get elected by coming up with a bogus platform.

Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated.

So what do you do with the evicted tenants? Next policy is for expansion of the AMC?

More than happy if the AMC was increased in size by ten fold to accommodate the housos.

‘affirmative action plan such as a five man team’

Lulz. Chic, do us a favour and don’t use terms you do not understand.
