Governing for all Australians

On the evidence of the last fourteen years, when John Howard and Kevin Rudd assured us that they would govern for all Australians, what they meant was that they would govern for the people in the western suburbs of both Sydney AND Melbourne.

Now, horror of horrors, they have discovered that there are people outside those hallowed regions, people in the leafy suburbs (doctors’ wives etc.) and people in rural and regional Australia who think they should have a say as well, and that their say should be listened to.

Rather impertinent of them, but there it is.
