Each time I watch the latest news on the battle between Peta Credlin and Dan Andrews, I cannot help but think of that great fairytale and musical masterpiece Peter and the Wolf. 

Peter and the Wolf is a story about not being afraid, about taming nature and conquering external threats. The dark shadow in the woods beyond the fence perfectly evokes the paranoia of the Stalinist Regime, which wanted Russian citizens to believe that they "live in paradise, but there’s always an external enemy just beyond the fence, for which they must be on guard".

Geez, doesn't that ring a bell in today's modern world of Climate Change, Lockdowns and Socialist fear mongering.....

Peta Credlin has shown us that her Conservative, fact based pursuit of the truth is very much like the young Peter from the fairytale when dealing with the tragedy that is modern life. You can only win if you have some support and you stay firm and committed to your case. But it is only ever going to be a battle in a war that has been waged for thousands of years. Battles can be won but wars are a different story. 

Here is a synopsis of the original tale:

  • On the edge of the vast forests of Russia, where wolves still roam, lies a little cottage surrounded by a big, high fence. This is where Peter lives with his grumpy Grandfather. Grandfather will not let Peter go out into the forest. Peter has a friend, the lovable Duck, with whom he hangs around Grandfather's yard. A Bird with a broken wing arrives in the yard. Bird is very impatient with Peter and signals to go into the forest. His heart beating fast, Peter tiptoes into the cottage and reaches over his sleeping Grandfather and the snoring, fat Cat. Ever so carefully Peter takes the keys to the gate.

    Peter has the time of his life playing in the forest with his friends. He helps Bird to fly, using a balloon and some rope. Then everyone skates on the frozen lake. Everyone, that is, except Cat. She chases Bird, but is so fat that she crashes straight through the ice and into the freezing water. Grandfather awakes and sees that Peter is in the forest. Very angry, he grabs his gun an rushes outside. He grabs Peter off the ice and drags him back into the yard.

    Suddenly the forest goes quiet. Peter looks out through a hole in the fence and sees the Wolf on the edge of the forest. Moments later the Wolf snatches up Duck, tosses her high into the air and swallows her in a single gulp. Peter slings a heavy net over his shoulder and climbs up the tall fence and into the tall tree. Peter falls from the tree and the Wolf attacks him. Eventually, after a fierce struggle, Peter catches the Wolf.

    Grandfather drives into town with the captured Wolf, Peter standing, triumphant, on top of the Wolf's cage. The town bullies arrive and tease the defenceless Wolf with a gun. Peter opens the cage and the Wolf races back into the forest.

Well, Peta Credlin may win this battle and stand triumphant on top of the cage but the Wolf will be let loose and ready to do it all over again.  

What is happening in Victoria, New Zealand, Queensland, America, UK, in fact all around the Western World is the story of Peter and the Wolf.

We have all seen the fat cats; the so called " benevolent "  grandfather figures; the loyal duck  and the courageous Peters.

But, like the story says, the Wolf always survives and waits for the next opportunity to strike.

Please enjoy this piece of musical delight and listen to it with an entirely different ear.

 

 

If Peter had not caught the Wolf, What then?
