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:

  1. ignore any of the actual facts of the case
  2. avoid uttering any opinion at all on the actual issue
  3. 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?
