Politicians are no different to anyone else in the country, except they have been vested, by the people, with the authority to run the nation in accordance with all applicable documentation. They are employed by the people, who (supposedly) consider them to be leaders, to make decisions for the benefit of the country and its citizens, AND to behave in a statesman like manner.
Unfortunately, within our current political world, the number of politicians with these desired qualities has diminished. Very few Pollies behave appropriately. They’re focussed firmly on discrediting any messenger with an adverse message. They put most of their energy into maintaining their own political career. Very little of their time and energy is left to run the country in an appropriate manner.
Many of them seem to think they are better than the average person, up on a pedestal, and as such are entitled to a champagne lifestyle. This possibility could be considered if we had full employment, no homeless, and free education for every child.
Regardless of who is to blame for this situation, there’s only one group who can repair the damage. The politicians.
Hence, we can only pray and live in hope (and vote).

Just because no one is talking about university fees, doesn’t mean they are dead – buried – and cremated. I think they’re just in political hibernation, and will be woken as soon as a pollie feels there’s value in flogging that particular dead horse.
Free education for all Australians is to the benefit of Australia, not just the students.
It maximizes the potential of Australia’s greatest assets, our children.
If we don’t fully develop this asset, then Australia is not advancing at its maximum capacity.
Australia can’t afford NOT to have free education for all Australian children.
