I can’t understand why Senator Nash has gone to ground over the health star rating website. She should come out on the attack: there has been a change of government and the Coalition has a much higher view of the intelligence of Australians than Labor and the Greens. She should passionately rage against the Nanny State and describe how the taking down of the website was step one of a long process to remove the Nanny from our lives. She should have not accepted Alastair Furnival’s resignation, instead pointing out how many Labor MPs have spouses in positions that one could argue is a conflict of interest. I don’t know Nash or Furnival, but surely the right approach would have been to attack the Nanny rather than capitulate.
Perhaps Nash thinks the Nanny is Rebecca De Mornay from The Hand that Rocks the Cradle?
