Is everybody given a fair go in this country?
Not anymore, says Peter Barnes, and definitely not with a government intent on taking away the services and support most needed by the nation’s poorest.
But what is even more disgraceful, laments Peter, are the lies that these people have to take a ‘hit’ for the sake of (what is already) a strong economy.
“A fair go” could be Australia’s motto.
It’s a phrase that’s uniquely Australian, and one on which we pride ourselves: Fair go, mate!
There are other versions that nobody but an Australian would understand: “Fair dibs”, and of course “Fair suck of the sauce bottle”, but they all mean roughly the same thing.
Fairness, and balance.
