ASIO: Australia's king spy

Who would suspect a technologically designed lion fish capable of exterminating human vermin? Risley’s keepers and doctor’s didn’t.

Simba had been completed, tested, adjusted, perfected and trialled. He was an effective killer of kings. The last king exterminated was Risley, paedophile king of South East Asia. When snorkeling off Port Douglas, Risley stood on Simba and was envenomed with fatal doses of Lion fish poison. It was believable and location credible.

ASIO, Australia's national security intelligence service, had worked for years on removing the political constipants from our coveted South Pacific Islands. Rich in guano, Australia wanted control of the islands. Guano was projected as an organic fertilizer highly suited to the fast growth of sugar cane and marine life. Of particular interest to the Government of Australia though was preventing the demise of their greatest natural wonder, the Great Barrier Reef.

Environmental studies consistently warned of the chemical fertilizer Urea bleaching the reef and destroying ecology and tourism by the year 2025.

All along the coast of Far North Queensland, the land barrier of the Great Barrier Reef, cane fields were fertislised with Urea.

To ban fertilizing would end industry and collapse tourist infrastructure. It was in the interest of national growth and international relations to ban political coups and dictatorships and to harness guano.

ASIO was tasked with capturing the resource. They partnered internationally and carefully conspired a tropical holiday to Double Island: a tropical island where Lion fish were regularly sighted.

ASIO waited. They fished and they perfected. They watched and tracked. They baited and manipulated.

Gordia Pitcairn Fletcher, current sitting dictator of Norfolk Island, scheduled to visit the Far North Queensland area in September, 2010.

Anna Bligh, Premier of Queensland and Pitcairnian descendant of William Bligh of the Bounty, was positioned to immediately take over the administration and leadership of the richest gem in the South Pacific.

That's funny that it reads as a news story. Very Freudian:

1) I was listening to the krudd and Julia Gillard makes Australia's first woman prime minister commentary by reporters, and
2) Today I've been dealing with the journalist unit I'm currently doing.

Just goes to show how we are strongly influenced by occurrences around us.

Tomorrow I'll try to be more creative.

I love it - news, the environment,a murder or two and a conspiracy theory to boot - I take that to be creative Megan :-)

And I too am taking a break form study to post this - hopefully there is nothing Freudian about my post lol
