It’s government budget time so the airwaves are filled with wingeing and whining pollies, pundits and people. It’s painful and frustrating.
Apparently this discourse all comes under the banner of a “national debate”, although the truth is far from it. There is no debate. Debates usually have rules attached and they include developing a clear and concise argument.
What’s happening now is not a debate. It’s a glorified version of “yes it is, no it isn’t” played out and supported by the media.
