Why don’t people like Donald Trump for his open and outspoken personality?

I answered this Question on Quora.

It is because President Trump will not accept that he has to conform to the view that Politics is for the Media, Government is for the Establishment, diplomacy is for deals under the table and the People are for ‘spinning’ to.

He went to the People of America and told them what he wanted a mandate for. Now he is delivering it.

Did those who are vocal in their criticism of him think he was going to be change just because he became President? He has never been a Politician what else was he going to do other than be himself.

In 2020 they will be able to vote for somebody else until then they have every opportunity to present ideas better than President Trump’s to the People.

I would rather have a Leader who is honest with the People about his views of the World than one who tells the media what it is he or she expects the People to believe.

In politics of Australia, why do people tend to bring up homeless people in response to asylum seekers?

Answered on Quora

For those outside of Australia it would appear to be almost deliberate that there are any homeless people and to some extent that is almost true.

Successive Governments have failed to produce policies which last longer than their term of Government and State Politics work against each other.

Australia’s refugee policy has become inhumane, ridiculous and very expensive. It has divided Australia as it offers no solutions only controversy.

Like most citizens of any country people want their own looked after first hence the homeless and asylum seekers debate.

These are my suggestions;

There are many buildings in Australia that lie empty and it would not be difficult to draft legislation that ensures every developer builds x number of social housing homes per x of commercial development.

The economies of scale of even a moderate commercial development of 10 homes would make building a social home less expensive than as a stand-alone construction.

Australia also needs an industrial strategy that provides value-added employment. It has bled it’s resources dry. Australia has a powerhouse in the sun and that too has the potential to provide thousands of jobs should Australia decide to become a net exporter of energy.

There are no doubt those who say Australia’s first priority should be to its citizens – to which I agree. But the relatively small amount of asylum seekers when processed can be quite easily absorbed with a minimum term of directed location by a country which still seeks legal immigrants.

What Australia needs is a Bi-Partisan refugee policy so asylum seekers are not subjected to Political football .

Unfortunately selfish Party Politics would appear to produce self-obsessed Party Policies which only produce the destructive forces of economic disunity and mediocre politicians.

The U.K urgently & immediately needs a new Government with strong positive Leadership.

I am still searching for the words that can redefine ‘incompetence’ and ‘intellectually challenged’.

Did Theresa May and her Cabinet cancel their summer holidays in what is one of the most important years in U.K History? No.

Where are our new alliances and post Brexit Unions?

Where is our new Union of ex-E.U European States? Nowhere.

Where is our new RD strategy so that we can direct funding to non-E.U markets? Nowhere.

Where is any new Economic Strategy? Nowhere

Where is our new Agricultural Policy to ensure we increase the productivity of our agricultural system and grow crops that compete with non E.U produce? Nowhere.

Where is our new Defense Policy to take into account the new U.S/France alliance? Nowhere.

Where is our new Naval Strategy to ensure our Type 45 Destroyers who are required to escort our new aircraft carrier can still protect the U.K against IBCM with the Viper/PRIMS System – as they will now be required to protect the HMS Elizabeth?

Where is our new anti-terrorism Strategy and Public warning to be ready for chemical attacks? Nowhere.

Where is our new Acid and Chemical product and sales monitoring and flag system? Nowhere

Where are the Military to secure our borders to ensure returning ISIS do not co-operate with criminal groups in the U.K to use chemical weapons? Nowhere.

Where are the arrests of out of control U.K Cyber Criminals? Nowhere

Where is the reduction of child abuse? Nowhere

Where is the reduction in crime? Nowhere

Where is the National Plan for this winter NHS’s crisis? Nowhere

I could go on and on and on. Never in the history of the U.K has there ever been such a totally inadequate Government in charge of the U.K

Wake up U.K Your Government is absolutely hopeless. You do not have a Government you have a ‘laughing stock’ and with the whole world watching.
