I think the problem goes much deeper than just that. IMO, and it is a big generalisation, I think the politicians act the way they do because they are "US". Most of us would sprout some sort of bullshit from our mouths because it happens to fit our agenda regardless of the needs of others or the good of the many. So it stands to reason that, if one of our brethren gets elected into office, they are going to do the same thing when they take office. Some of my colleagues and friends have often stated that the Australia we know today is far less charitable than from years ago. I am not sure you'd agree though eveln.
