I recently dredged a pamphlet from my letterbox with a message from Russell Broadbent.

In it, he reminded us that: “The pandemic has been tough for everyone. By working together, we are getting through it.”

I just can’t remember Russell contributing anything worthwhile that helped this community cope with the COVID pandemic.

By the use of we in that sentence, Russell has implied that he assisted this community with the timely provision of vaccines and that he supported the other measures recommended by our public health professionals.

The trouble is, Russell and his LNP cronies have done nothing to help ordinary Australians face the challenges of our immediate future, whether it be provision of public education, health care, defence or transport. Well done, Russell.
