I find myself happily agreeing with Janet Brown about putting away the big stick with these kids, it just doesn’t work.
This was pointed out years ago by John McCarthy (thanks for the reminder Alex Nelson), who, incidentally, is the father of our new Senator, Malarndirri.
Let’s hope the Royal Commission leads to a new approach, one that is resourced appropriately. This will require Federal Government leadership, I think, to provide the funding required, and to overcome the squeals from the likes of Peter Bassett (a self proclaimed leftard spotter) and the anonymous Original Centralian (aka Cowardly Custard).
For too long the ill-informed views of their ilk have been given undue weight in our small pond.
As for ministerial responsibilty? More of it I say, that’s how the Westminster system is supposed to work, make ministers accountable, keep them on their toes, oversighting their departments properly.
Tough, but it will make ministers and their departments better in the long run.

@ Charlie Carter: Took your advice to John Bell, re-read Marcias’ article. Easily found. Puts a lot in perspective. Cheers.
