Why should he resign or be sacked? Just because he's handled a few things badly that have caused some people a great deal of hurt, and shown a complete inability to recognise and remove people who cannot be trusted to perform properly in the offices they hold, and protected known paedophiles, and is incapable of recognising his own deficiencies and of even apolgising?
If you're going to apply that sort of standard, where does that leave Howard and Ruddock? If they resigned or were sacked, people might wrongly believe that they were led by fools and knaves and lose respect for governments and politicians. It'd be the end of the civilisation as we know it.
Leave things as they are, so we can bring our kids up in a country where we can point to our leaders as shining examples of honesty and decency, and where every kid has the opportunity to be f*cked by a priest or minister or teacher, and then be thoroughly f*cked over again and again if they or their parents try to do something about it.
Really, Adviliax, what were you thinking?
