Political class tests our patience
Australian politics is already in a bad enough state without the latest allegations of sexual misconduct against Opposition leader Luke Foley and his subsequent resignation.
Regardless of who did what, all the latest scuttlebutt has done is undermine confidence in our politicians even further — if that’s possible.
The public is well and truly fed up. Our prime ministers have been playing musical chairs for the past 10 years, the ruling party is bitterly divided, the opposition is weak and parliament is like a kindergarten.
Meanwhile the cost of living is climbing and living standards are dropping.
The last thing any Australian needed was another scandal involving politicians.
Why did no one inside the Labor Party do anything to defuse the situation before it became yet another embarrassment for the political class?
How much more are we expected to take?
