It has been suggested, and disputed mind, that most of the Federal Government's stimulus spending has gone to marginal Labor electorates.
My reaction? Ho hum. No surprise about that. The Liberal Party would have done the same had they been in office, except to different electorates. I recall some instances of Liberal Party largess to their electorates. Yawn yawn.
And this is wrong of me. I should be outraged. I should be writing to newspapers. Journalists should be tapping out columns of criticism. Media commentators should be thundering away at the impropriety. Radio talk back hosts should be firing up their callers.
But no, we are just so conditioned, so cynical, so jaded, so spin educated that we are failing to react to wrongs. Manana. What are tomorrow's headlines anyway? Anything that will outrage me for ten minutes?
