The Australian - - COMMENTARY -

It is fas­ci­nat­ing to watch the leftwing me­dia who sup­ported Mal­colm Turn­bull body and soul, now turn­ing into at­tack dogs on any­thing con­cern­ing the Lib­eral Party. It seems that in some sec­tions of the me­dia, Turn­bull could do no wrong and his suc­ces­sors will be able to do no right.

Scott Mor­ri­son and his dis­ci­ples seem to be un­able or un­will­ing to ex­plain why Mal­colm Turn­bull is now out of a job, The an­swer is ob­vi­ous: Turn­bull was foisted on us cour­tesy of a back­room coup and he was al­ways too big for his boots.

Ac­cord­ing to a pi­ano-play­ing friend of mine, we now need to have an equal num­ber of black notes as white notes, and mi­nor chords want equal­ity with so-called “op­pres­sive” ma­jor chords. Mi­nor chords say they are sick of be­ing sad.

If we are go­ing to in­tro­duce quo­tas for fe­male politi­cians, per­haps it is also time for the ABC to in­tro­duce quo­tas for its com­men­ta­tors. Fifty per cent to be left-lean­ing (in­stead of 100 per cent) and 50 per cent to be right-lean­ing. Only then will the ABC come close to its char­ter.

Chas Barter, Lower Mitcham, SA

When de­bate turns to gen­der eq­uity, I re­call the adage, “women who want to be equal to men have no am­bi­tion”.
