Strolling in my mind through Rome's Tivoli Gardens, musing on Chapman's Homer I... oh look, this article is just a direct communique to Jacqui Lambie (and to the strange DLP-Trendies mix -- the Centre Alliance -- a bit) but the rest of you can read it if you want.

Jacqui, here's why you should vote against Education Minister Dan Tehan's higher-ed funding proposals, and not even do that peekaboo horse-trading, get a new playground for Ulverstone in exchange for abolishing the Health Department stuff

1. The proposals limit higher education choices for middle and low income families

Dan Tehan's changes are presented as increasing job-ready uni places by reducing the fees for course such as nursing, clinical psychology and engineering.
