A pithy example this morning on the news of why NSW Labor is in opposition. In reply to a question about the Laman St Figs issue, NSW opposition leader John Robertson blamed it all on local state Liberal MP being “missing in action”. A pithy example of a consistent strategy of:
- ignore any of the actual facts of the case
- avoid uttering any opinion at all on the actual issue
- blame somebody else (who isn’t even relevant to the issue – the Laman St figs fiasco is a local council issue, not a state Govt issue.
Please can we have a better opposition in NSW?
