Wheelin’ and dealin’

Keith Binns writes: Re. “Is there a secret Nationals deal to attack women in the Family Court?” (yesterday). It will be interesting to see how the Nats vote holds up in Queensland when more of the Barrier Reef bleaches. They remain the most culpable political Party as they deny Climate Change while it is their constituency that will be most effected.
I was handing out pamphlets for Get Up on election day. There was a shady side and a sunny side on the path where I was. A Liberal supporter, in the shade and cold, asked to swap with a co-worker in the sun. She replied that she liked it in the sun and wouldn’t swap. Sort of sums up the whole Party, doesn’t it?
