This story isn’t about governments, it’s about ordinary people.
(And, by the way, it’s also not about blindly supporting our government either; it’s perfectly possible to be annoyed about why we’re in this mess, want the appropriate head to roll, and still think what we’re doing now is the right thing to do. Because it is.)
I’ll never forget how much harder Murdoch, Sunrise, Today, and Pete Fucking Evans made all this.
And I guarantee you a decent portion of the ordinary – nay, extraordinary – 5 million Melburnians just getting on with it won’t either.
