Well, some weeks pass without note. This one gave us the decriminalisation of abortion, the potential impeachment of Donald Trump and a good-old-fashioned Photoshop bungle.
Our school kids skipping school to protest the Government’s inaction should be an example to follow. In fact, compared to the people who govern us, they’re the ones closer to reality.
The ongoing crisis at Manus is not just an issue that needs solving, it is also a slash across the face of the Australia we grew up idolising.
Whether we like it or not, our elected officials swim in the same circles as we and use social media to further their own intentions, for good or ill.
As far as weeks go, it hasn’t been a bad one…if you happen to disqualify Donald Trump attempting to steer a hurricane into Alabama, fire season starting in September and a reckless decision by an airline. Silver linings and all that.
