Our efforts at solving the major issues of today such as violence against women, aged care support to mention just two are doomed to fail. I believe that the people tasked with running government are too inexperienced. Having just obtained my OBE, looking back over the last 50 years, I am truly amazed at how much I have learned and how much I have changed in my life attitudes. In fact I am frightened at some of the things I believed in and did as a young man. The Americans voted in Joe Biden to replace the dangerous Donald Trump. They chose a man who is 78 years old, a former Vice-President, a career public servant, a man sadly familiar with tragedy. He is the right man to lead America out of the mess they are in. We need elder statesmen of his calibre to be running this country, not people with their personal vested interests who still have soap behind their ears.
