All care, no responsibility

Two WA Federal Liberal MPs are outraged by Robert Mugabe and his undemocratic actions which are defiling Zimbabwe. It’s disgraceful and disgusting, Don Randall and ex-South African Dennis Jensen say.

 “A lot of people are very concerned about it, I’m personally concerned about it,” Liberal MP and former South African Dennis Jensen told reporters today.

“I just find the situation in Zimbabwe disgraceful. What Mugabe has got to do is just go for the sake of his own people.

“When it comes down to it, it’s war against his own people.”
Fellow WA Liberal Don Randall told reporters “there’s an absolute disgust at Mugabe trying to steal back a democratically-elected result”. (Source: WA Today)

Opposition is a very cushy role because you don’t have to take a lot of responsibility, except for a beating straight after an election. Unless you are Morgan Tsvangirai, then you have to take a lot of responsibility and a beating.

Postscript: Post updated further to Dr Jensen’s edifying comments – apologies extended and post amended.
