Waste of time

Whitsunday Times - - YOUR SAY -

WHAT a waste of time and our money are the cur­rent an­tics of our politi­cians.

If peo­ple have come here from an­other coun­try, as so many have, lived here for many years, been nat­u­ralised and want to work for Aus­tralia, why should they not be al­lowed to?

I sup­pose it is one way to get rid of the op­po­si­tion.

Do we have to ig­nore part of our life and pre­tend it did not hap­pen?

Most of our hos­pi­tals and other med­i­cal ser­vices are staffed by peo­ple from other coun­tries, are we go­ing to get rid of them too?

An­other thing is the money wasted on that sur­vey.

There are many good things that money could have been spent on: do­na­tions to Sal­va­tion Army, Smith Fam­ily, Fly­ing Doc­tor ser­vices, Teen Chal­lenge and many oth­ers.

If the politi­cians con­cen­trated on do­ing their job, which I pre­sume is to run the coun­try, in­stead of petty squab­bles about noth­ing, we would all be bet­ter off.
