One of the biggest stupidities I have seen in recent years is the erecting of a fortress around our Federal Parliament. Yes, it is OUR Federal Parliament.
Have a look at these photos of this bloody stupid thing.
In November 2015, Prime Minister Turnbull said in Parliament:
"The terrorists want us to bend to their will, to be frightened, to change the way we go about our lives, to abandon our values."
"If we do that, they win and they will not win, we will not let them win."
So much for not letting the terrorists win.
Why just stop at a wall? Why not rebuild all of Parliament House underground like Winston Churchill's War Cabinet bunker?
There was a time when we criticised nations that used walls to protect themselves.
"As a free man, I take pride in the words: Ich bin ein Canberran!"
"Mr Turnbull! Tear down this wall!"
