Sometimes little things can really get to me.

Being an INFP, I am an idealist, and as a result, find myself constantly leaping to defend my perception of “the underdog”.

My years of riding motorcycles (avoiding death by impact with car drivers/battling the endless unjust traffic fines)have impressed a somewhat militant survivalistic attitude upon my mentally.

After a few years representing a multi-national company in various customer service roles. (A job I totally enjoyed)

I now find that I can become extremely caustic with employees/politicians that I consider are performing in an inferior manner.

Mostly the poor politician/employee is just “holding the political party/company line”. But with such a rude/bored/uncaring attitude. That it leaves no doubt about the political partys/companies bad intentions toward their electorate/clients.

I always attempt to report their behaviour to their superiors. However, Politicians dont seem to have a superior to report them too. (With the possible exception of the Governor or Governor-General?) I have noticed that many of the largest of the companies have little or no interest in being notified of employees that are also unacceptable to the public.

So looks to me like the representative democtratic process and customer service have almost dissapeared in 2010.

All of the largest corporations have replaced staff with an “Electronic Interuption/Telephone Routing/Advertising/Time Waster” service. Which eventually passes you to an “offshore helpdesk sweat factory”. Where you battle with thick accents and a system where one department has no authority over another department.

After all that. If you really need to complain. You will probably find out that you will need to make a formal written application.

Even in 2010 it seems that many companies (and some politicians) still do not accept emails as a valid form of communications.

Thus forcing you to go through the whole “Post office” scenario.

If you are still sufficiently annoyed to go to the trouble of battling the system futher that is. Unfortunatly most people (myself included) seem to loose momentum at that final stage.

It becomes “too much trouble” to obtain representation/complain properly.

Well it occurs to me that these scumbags know that many people get angry. But a much lower percentage will go to all the “trouble” of writing an official letter to them.

It seems that the most vital of the Government Departments have adopted this proceedure.

Trying to make a complaint about the Police is an endless chore…

Trying to make a complaint about the Health System is the same…

Making a complaint about Centrelink is a multi-tiered maze that must be negotiated…

and getting nowhere fast…

Lets face it.. The Government Departments were designed to be this way by the politicians.

They “sit in power” and make laws according to their party accords.

If you contact your local representatives and if they or their party doesn’t agree with your opinion. You will get no representation. Even if the majority of the population did the same thing. The party politicians all stick together to force their unwanted bills into laws.

However.. As far as the politicians are concerned. A somewhat unknown option is to PETITION or email the Governor-General of your concerns..

This is especially useful when the politicians ignore the constitution regarding providing fair political representation to the electorate.

Or perhaps the politicians ramrod their “pet” policies against public opinion? (Sale of Telstra? GST? Filter the Internet?)

This is where the Governor or Governor-General should be emailed or petitioned.

Because basically the politicians by acting this way are acting against the constitutionof Australia.

If a politician fails to represent the will of the people. They are failing to perform their primary function. That is to “represent the will of the people in their electorate to parliament”. A function that they have accepted money to perform. To obtain money for a service that wasn’t performed adaquetly in my opinion is obviously quite fraudulent.

Some (many party?) politicians seem to consistantly ignore the wishes of their electorate. Under those conditions politicians have broken the law. If a politician breaks the law they can be removed by the Governor-General. (with or without the request of the voting public)

“THE POWER, PEROGATIVES AND AUTHORITIES OF THE MONARCHY, THE GOVERNOR-GENERAL, AND STATE GOVERNORS, ARE THE BRAKES WHICH THE AUSTRALIAN PEOPLE CAN APPLY AT ANY HOUR (without having to wait for any general election) TO BRING MINISTERS AND POLITICIANS TO A COMPLETE AND SUDDEN STOP, SO AS TO RECEIVE FROM THEM, THE ELECTORS, EITHER FRESH INSTRUCTION, REPRIMAND, OR DISMISSAL FROM SERVICE.“

I think that more people should contact the Governor or Governor-General if they believe that they aren’t being represented fairly by their local parliamentarians.
