Time to get serious about Australia (letter)


by Des Duffy

News Weekly, February 22, 2003
Sir,

Congratulations on the recent article by Ken Aldred on Australia's defence focus (NW, January 25), and Mr Jensen's letter on the ridiculous attitude of the Federal Government to the destruction of Australian industries, aided and abetted by this same Government.

The irresponsibility towards the welfare of Australia seems to go back to an empty-headed Boyer lecture by Bob Hawke.

The public instead of being deluded by our sport culture should be directed towards the real world, and as a nation, we should "grow up". As a nation, we are being served infantile drivel.

Des Duffy,
Nunawading, Vic
