Interesting. Given the way Australian politics seem to have been swinging more and more to the right, I’m almost surprised by this:
“The right to a “fair go” is the thing almost all Australians put at the top of their list when it comes to values.
A survey released today shows 91 per cent of people believe a fair go is important, with most listing the need for rights to welfare, housing and indigenous reconciliation to make the country fairer.”
This is kind of sad, considering people could take a ‘fair go’ into their own hands, but I guess at least it could be applied as a test to new legislation:
“The survey found 82 per cent believed it was government’s responsibility to make the country fairer.” Age
