Welcome to the Third World

Australia must be a Third World country.

While trachoma has now been eliminated in 'First' World countries, such as Ghana, Morocco, Iran and Oman and it is quickly disappearing in Ethiopia and Somalia, the level among our indigenous Australians has remained much the same for the past three decades.


At least our Kevvy seems to have come good with $58 million to address the problem over the next four years.


  1. It is a disgrace that so much money has achieved so little. let's hope they get it right.

  2. Brought to you by the same apathetic dropkicks who are determined Oz should stagnate and go backwards in development, world leadership and getting anything done in this lifetime....but who make sure they get their palm greased with silver.

  3. If I remember correctly it was Joh Belke-Peterson who stopped the program in Queensland because he said the health workers were spreading Labor propaganda.

  4. Strikes me that it's down to a lack of proper vision. (Copyright Tasteless Jokes Inc 2009)

  5. Loz, do we actually know how much has been spent on Aboriginal health over the last decade? Maybe it is a lot and badly spent or maybe not much.

    We aren't getting it right at all Jayne.

    Almost funny Jahteh, if wasn't probably true.

    Oh Brian. Our pollies are the same as yours. They lack any foresight and can never see beyond the next election.
