Leunig captures the mood

Cartoon by Leunig (taken from twitter feed)
The latest cartoon from Leunig reflects the mood of Australians right now.

They are watching their Government  turn into McCarthyites, arrest medics (below) raise taxes when they promised (many times) not to and dis their beloved (and efficient) Medicare sytem.

There is a program on ABC later today inquiring into whether we now accept that politicians lie, and if we do, what that means. One journalist has likened our current government to politicians in some 'developing' countries. He writes with dismay that you just can't trust what they say any more.

Do they think the population wont notice I wonder?
