We can’t afford the bill
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
