Australian Prime Minister Kevin Dud formally apologized Monday to 500,000 victims of childhood abuse in the country’s orphanages and government-run institutional care facilities between 1930 and 1970.
‘Allo caring cobbers, isn’t this great country great. And aren’t we all great here, today, even you lot, who had your arses banged like a shithouse door in a gale ? Isn’t it a great country,
Australian children and thousands of young migrants who were sent to
A thousand survivors gathered in the Aussie Parliament Hall to hear Dud and opposition leader Malcolm Turnbull give emotional apologies. Not a dry eye in the fucking house, there wasn’t.
‘‘We come together today to deal with an ugly chapter of our nation’s history and we come together today to offer our nation’s apology,’’ Dudd said. “ Course I’m not really apologisin’, cobbers and fellow citizens a this great child-abusing, wog-bashing nation – ain’t Australia great? - see, because it wasn’t me did all that shit but hey, I’m a real nice guy and if it gives people nice warm feelings to hear me aplogising fer somethin’ I never done, why that’s just part a living in this great country. And havin’ me make the apology is just like havin’ the criminal shitbags themselves make the apology, before being thrown in the Jailhouse and having their property confiscated and given to the victims. In fact, it’s better this way because this way, we won’t have to investigate many a the prominent citizens in this great country, Australia, many of whom know shit about me an’ my mates in Parliament and who control the votes of large numbers a their fellow – unmolested – citizens. So instead of all that muck-rakin’ and old fashioned and I might say right unhelpful, un-Australian notions of Justice, we are all gonna just bury this shit right here and now by just saying To you, the ‘Forgotten Australians’ and those who were sent to our shores as children without their consent…we are sorry. Sorry that as children you were taken from your families and placed in institutions where you were so often abused, sorry for the physical suffering, the emotional starvation and the cold absence of love of tenderness of care. And now that we got that shit outa the way will y’all stand and sing with me the Naional Anthem a this great country that allows you victims, despite your eariler wickedness, to be its great citizens, ah-one-two-three-four Noncing Matilda, Noncing Matilda, you’ll come a-Noncing, Matilda with me…….”
The Alliance for Forgotten Australian said victims suffered devastating, long-term effects from their experience, including ‘‘difficulty forming and maintaining relationships, trauma and depression, low education levels, widespread illiteracy and poor physical health.’‘ Many victims have spent much of their lives in prison whilst their tormentors have flourished and prospered.
Prime Minister Kev never mentioned compensation at the SorryFest but it is believed that the Aussie government planse to help ease the old age of some of the victims. That’s right Australian of them, eh?
