Whilst perusing the SHM opinions section I came across this gem from our beloved Simon Corbell.
After reading it I was really none the wiser as to what point he was trying to put forward, except that the Commonwealth should be giving the States more money to address national social issues and that, in his opinion, the Commonwealth has been neglectful in not addressing these issues, whatever they may be.
Although Simon’s idea that a National approach to a number of things is a good idea, I find myself questioning his reasons for saying so, remembering that the ACT under the Stanhope Government has a long track record of totally rejecting anything suggested by the current Federal Government.
Is this a case of handballing problems to someone else? Or is there something on the horizon that the ACT public may or may not like?
