My wife is doing a TAFE course this year and one of her instructors is pushing his personal political opinions in class. Of course, if she challenges him then she will not pass. The instructor is a pro-Labor (actually pro-Communist) and he is using class time to promote the current state premier (Labor) and denigrate the current Prime Minister (Liberal). Note that both state and federal governments face re-election this year.

[Quick aside for Americans: Labor is closer to Democrats and Liberal is closer to Republican - not an exact match but close enough to follow the discussion. In Australian politics, Labor is left of centre, Liberal is right of centre. Further left are the Greens and Communists, further right is the National Party.]

In particular this bozo hammered the Liberals (who hold federal power) for the failings of: education, health, police and water shortages. All four key items are actually state managed (the Labor party hold control of the state government). So the four big issues he is whinging about are actually failings resulting from his favourite party....

I am happy that not everyone holds the same political views that I do but I do require you to have thought carefully and logically about your political position before you can spout off about it. This idiot has absolutely no clue and it makes you wonder if he has any intelligence in other areas - such as his teaching....
