Michael Pascoe: The federal Liberal Party doesn’t care about Australia
So the rabble that is the federal Opposition will remain aloof from the jobs and skills summit, declining the opportunity to contribute to policy formation – if they have anything to contribute – preferring to remain remote to whinge, playing to their rusted-on base instead of the nation’s benefit.
And thus the Dutton opposition perforce marks itself as unfit for consideration as alternative government. It doesn’t care about the country, about our future.
It lacks any sense of integrity. It’s only in it for the mates, for the vested interests, for the lust for power, for the keys to The Lodge.
And that is a bad thing for us all. We get better government when there is good opposition, challenging, improving.
The Dutton opposition has left the building. It has nothing to offer.Michael Pascoe: The federal Liberal Party doesn’t care about Australia
