ABC The Drum Opinion: The stuff that matters

by ericknight

Some people get awfully hot under the collar when it comes to politics. Noel Pearson once said that there were a bunch of people who grew up in this country and spent their entire careers arguing that the other side was wrong. Pearson’s point was a subtle one. They had missed something more important: finding solutions to difficult problems.

There will be a lot of prejudice and pre-judgment thrown at the newly elected government in NSW. But a clearer gaze gives the new NSW Liberal government half a chance to tackle some of our urgent service problems. Let’s hope they get it right!

For a more meandering reflection on what a Liberal government might stand for and what they should stand for, read my latest piece in The ABC The Drum here.
