TIME TO ASK MORE OF OUR ELECTED OF­FI­CIALS

Geelong Advertiser - - YOUR SAY -

IT is ironic that Aus­tralians de­mand a higher stan­dard of be­hav­iour from their sport­ing fig­ures than they do from elected politi­cians.

Cor­rupt politi­cians can do far more dam­age to the lives of Aus­tralians than in­di­vid­ual sport­ing iden­ti­ties.

They are cheats on a far grander scale.

Yet time and time again, the elec­torate re­turns politi­cians and par­ties that have abused pub­lic of­fice, thereby be­tray­ing pub­lic trust.

It’s time, I think, for Aus­tralians to get their pri­or­i­ties in or­der if there is to be a fu­ture for this na­tion and gen­er­a­tions to come. Michael J Gam­ble, Bel­mont
