It being April Fools Day I was thinking of decisions made or decisions avoided and that if it was possible to turn back time, the politicians who should have or could have done things differently.
Might we have seen a compassionate Howard who would have chosen to argue that boat people were the result of terrible persecution.
Might we have seen Turnbull quitting the Liberals and choosing to run as an Independent.
Might we have seen Kevin Rudd deciding that he could just as easily have played with Tony Abbott’s mind as he did with John Howard’s.
Might we have seen Tony Abbott deciding that negotiating for the benefit of all Australians is the right and honorable thing to do.
**I had to delete the last one as being far too unbelievable.
Now what’s this got to do with April Fools Day? Perhaps the answer is that we all make foolish choices at times.
