We can’t af­ford the bill

Sunshine Coast Daily - - YOUR SAY -

THE fight for elec­tion votes has be­gun with the usual argy-bargy. I have a re­quest for our pol­lies.

Leave your part­ners and chil­dren out of it. Stop bring­ing them to work. We aren’t vot­ing for them, though they couldn’t do a worse job.

Per­son­ally, I have as much in­ter­est in them as I do with the bus driver’s fam­ily. Stop kiss­ing and hug­ging ba­bies.

Stop the self­ies. It only en­cour­ages the nar­cis­sis­tic selfie col­lec­tors.

Don’t crit­i­cise your po­lit­i­cal op­po­nents. What we want to know in this job in­ter­view is how you in­tend to value add to the lives of your em­ployer ...us, the tax­payer.

We don’t need you to tell us what the other in­ter­vie­wees are go­ing to do. That’s for them to do, not you.

We’ve had enough of your neg­a­tiv­ity, back­stab­bing, in­fight­ing and school­yard an­tics and can’t af­ford the bill for the up­keep of ex-prime min­is­ters, min­is­ters and their var­i­ous hang­ers-on.

In short, be­have yourselves. At least act like de­cent hu­man be­ings even if you’re not sin­cere and above all, re­mem­ber who your em­ployer is and re­spect us even if you don’t re­spect yourselves. TONY SUL­LI­VAN Nam­bour
