Political leaders set a poor example for us all

GOVERNMENT departments spend thousands of our taxes promoting good citizenship, anti-bullying, and an equal opportunity for all.

However, from our Prime Minister down, politicians of most parties break their own set standard.

A standard they themselves have enshrined into laws for all Australians.

Leading by example does not seem important.

Question Time in parliament is a disgrace.

The name calling gangs of both major parties in federal and state parliament - hang your heads at the example you set.

Is it any wonder the public and our youths can no longer have respectful debates on important issues when those in power act like they are out of control?

Laws to stop bullying are just that if those in authority operate every day under a different standard.
