No question that this issue is very serious but we now have a new Liberal prime minister anxious to gain popularity and push more public money towards private ‘service providers’ with very little oversight of quality and value for money.
What usually happens when public money is released to private entrepreneurs to provide ‘services’?
Poor quality service and a ‘service provider’ who will buy another property on Sydney Harbour with the profits.
Domestic violence has its roots in ease of access to and misuse of drugs. Disintegration of the family unit. Failure of parents to provide their children with adequate moral, ethical and spiritual education. Materialism. Unemployment. Under education. I could go on and on.
Come on Malcolm. Put some detail to your grand gesture and address the real issues. Get the Pope and Dalai Lama involved.
