Point Scoring

This week’s article in The Age by Amanda Vanstone is typical of her Liberal point scoring game playing.  It’s easy for her to pontificate from the comfort of her South Australian home and attack a Labor government and the Premier in Victoria.  I wonder what she would have written if we had a Liberal government today led by Michael O’Brien and the situation was the same?  I am, of course, assuming that she did write the article herself rather than has been inferred in the past that some of her articles are written for her.  For political point scoring.  Whatever – I doubt she would have criticised Michael O’Brien.

What amuses me though is I know many people who regard The Age as being too left wing and Labor biased.  The Age allows biased comment every week by Amanda Vanstone but as far as I can see, no former Labor pollie gets the same coverage.  Que?
