In the mid 90s my six year old daughter rushed into the kitchen crying.Through sobs she said the man on TV had just said “John Howard hurts families”
She’d obviously seen either a commercial or a political commentator on television and the stinger for my daughter was the “hurting families” part. And it upset her greatly.
How do you explain to a distraught 6 year old child that it was nothing more than a political parasite playing with the truth in order to gain a political advantage.
That child is now a young woman and sadly, acutely aware of the cavalier fashion in which the politicians treat honesty
On the eve of the last election another political parasite was playing with the truth (no cuts to ABC) to gain a political advantage. Was he totally sure there were no innocent, trusting young kiddies were watching the TV?
