Today’s political reality

- – Denise Stevens, Healesvill­e, Vic

The article by Mike Carlton really sums up the paucity of values and leadership among our political “elite” and identifies quite clearly why so many of us are feeling disenfranc­hised from the critical issues of the day. Unfortunat­ely it doesn’t appear that much will change in the foreseeabl­e future, particular­ly with state and federal elections looming. What we will no doubt see will be more dog whistling and racist overtures to the lowest common denominato­r. It’s dispiritin­g that minority groups in marginal electorate­s now call the tune in Australia.
