It was refreshing to hear this week close to the election that some of the major party differences in policy, say on telecommunications , were coming from scientists, and not from politicians locked into their own ideas of what works.
How much optical fibre how much copper , how much air transmission how much subsidy to areas the " competitors would never go .
As an applied scientist, it’s very hard to watch some on the edge wannabes blundering through a list of wonderful sounding ideas when they clearly have no idea of how to implement them. It’s not a joke when we haven’t even got science and technology properly on the menu at our schools.
Believe me, The Greens hypocritical , reactive and unbelievable talk of a mentoring program this week goes down very, very poorly amongst those of us who have taught science and technology , and what really works, for decades in our own backyards ! I
If your kids, as scientists, ever got to work for some of these wannabes, would they get a word in edgeways ?
