News of another shark attack in Port Stephens today says to me that we are not culling enough of these prehistoric murderers. Just how long do we have to wait before it’s your child, innocently walking down the street or dancing in their bedroom to a Rolf Harris record, that is TAKEN by another member of this so-called “protected” species.
In my humble opinion their very continuing existence is the biggest moral challenge that we, as a society, face. For too long have these finned thugs hid behind their green-left “endangered” badge, marauding honest Australians at will. In my suburb of Waratah Heights alone, we have had three confirmed shark attacks in the last two months, plus a string of break and enters perpetrated during king tides. Friends, family and neighbours agree – enough is enough.
I propose that, as part of our Tony’s generous new work-for-the-dole schemes, squads of unemployed youths should patrol our beaches and waterways on stand up paddle boards, eliminating any sharks or threatening marine life they encounter with explosive-tipped Nerf guns. Whatever carcasses are collected can than be returned to shore to be cleaned and filleted by DSP recipients.
This program excels in its adaptability – once the shark problem is eliminated, the squads could target other maritime threats such as whales, dugongs and boat people.
