Get pri­or­ity right in 2018

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - Letters -

Of course, same-sex mar­riage is im­por­tant, but surely it was not the big­gest is­sue fac­ing Aus­tralia?

If the Turn­bull gov­ern­ment, and the Par­lia­ment gen­er­ally, had de­voted the same amount of ef­fort to the real is­sues con­fronting Aus­tralia that it has in­vested in the same-sex mar­riage and the cit­i­zen­ship de­ba­cles, just imag­ine what could have been achieved for Aus­tralia.

Per­haps we would be ac­tu­ally re­duc­ing debt and deficit, im­ple­ment­ing sen­si­ble en­ergy poli­cies that in­clude cheap coal, elim­i­nat­ing re­new­able sub­si­dies and aban­don­ing the econ­o­my­de­stroy­ing Paris Agree­ment, and restor­ing free­dom of speech.

So please, Prime Min­is­ter, would you now fo­cus on the real is­sues, not just the pop­u­lar ones? Bob Part­ing­ton, Wahroonga
