In a week’s time Australia will vote for its seventh Prime Minister in nine years.
Not the most flattering record to have, and one which a country like Australia does not deserve. In these times stability of leadership is crucial yet here we are at it again.
Admittedly four of those Prime Ministers were not elected but voted by their own parties for self-preservation and quests for power. Either way both major parties indulged in this high stakes game and both have lost voter confidence because of it.
I voted early so the current bombardment of political advertising is lost on deaf ears, and my guess is even if you haven’t voted already you have tuned them out.
Please let us have some stability. It’s really all we ask.
