AUS­TRALIA’S “in­terim” Prime Minister, Scott Mor­ri­son, last week roasted stu­dents who went on strike in an ef­fort to push home is­sues on cli­mate change. Ap­par­ently he would prefer to see more learn­ing in schools, rather than stu­dent ac­tivism. Se­ri­ously? Seems you can get a job as PM in this coun­try but still not get it. The very rea­son for their strike was due to their ed­u­ca­tion and, wait for it — learn­ing. These young peo­ple should have been con­grat­u­lated, not scolded by a con­de­scend­ing Prime Minister. This is, af­ter all, the world they, their chil­dren and their chil­dren’s chil­dren will in­herit long af­ter you, “Scomo”, and the rest of us have well and truly dropped off the perch. I’d say they’ve got a right to speak out. You owe it to them to lis­ten.
