Oh no, news got worse

Mercury (Hobart) - - LETTERS -

THE head­line “Fight­back” makes gloomy news ( Mer­cury, Novem­ber 15). Some­times head­lines ex­ag­ger­ate a bit, so I read the de­tails care­fully. Oh no. The news just got worse. I think most have thought of the Lib­eral Party as the “rich man’s party”, and the La­bor Party as the “poor per­son’s party”. I’ve formed the opin­ion this is naive. I now think of the Lib­eral Party as the one that pro­tects busi­ness from peo­ple and La­bor as the party that tries to pro­tect peo­ple from greedy busi­nesses, not all, just the greedy ones. Pro­test­ers rarely protest against busi­nesses striv­ing to make the world a bet­ter place. With­out pro­test­ers of the past, we’d have coast to coast des­o­la­tion. With­out the pro­test­ers of today, we’ll cre­ate the des­o­la­tion of the fu­ture.
