“Politicians and fairness”

    I don’t think it is fair how the politicians treated each other before the election because they were putting up posters about what they weren’t going to do and what they were doing wrong. I also didn’t like the way they were talking to each other badly. I also didn’t like all the parts on the news nearly all of the news was all about the voting. I didn’t like all the junk mail about the voting in the letterbox every day. There was also adds about if Tony Abbot wins you lose. People were also writing things on Facebook and some of the posts were just rumours and weren’t true.

I also didn’t like the way they were talking about each other saying that if Tony Abbot wins you lose. I didn’t like all of the junk mail in my letterbox and all of the ads that they put up on T.V. about labour and liberal. Every night there were a lot of ads about Tony Abbot and Tanya Denison. It isn’t fair that all the rumours on Facebook weren’t true and I believed them. Some of the posts on Facebook said that Kevin Rudd won but actually Tony Abbot did, and there were lots of pictures of Tanya Denison.

    Hi,
    I didn’t think that it was fair the way the politicians where treating each other before the election because:
    They had commercials on television bad mouthing each other and they had a commercial on T.V with a picture of Tony Abbot saying if he wins you loose and they had big banners of it and they chose a scary looking picture of him and I just think it is not fair.
    They also had a commercial of Kevin Rudd saying “look what mess he got us in in thirty one days imagine what will happen in three years” and I don’t think that was fair either.
    I think it was just not fair altogether but that is what will happen in life. :(

    No i don’t think they treat each other fairly because they tell people bad things about their opposition that might not be true or that might be true but sometimes is not backed up with evidance. I think it is not right for them to say those kind of things about their opposition.

    I think that it is not fair because politicians should keep their opinions to themselves and let the public decide for themselves and not if someone spreads a rumour. What if someone says something that is not true? That means you voted for someone that is a person that has lied.

    Hi Sophie-lee here,
    I don’t think the politicians treated the other politicians fairly because they are campaigning to win a place that other politicians want and other politicians do better campaigning to make the peoples vote for them. Some politicians can cause arguments over their campaigning because some might do more or better campaigning and it’s basically a competition. Some politics cause an argument over small things that they’re meant to do.

    Just my input, Sophie-lee

    P.S This probably isn’t correct or any where near correct it’s just what I thought.

    Hi Ryen here
    In politics all politicians are not treating each other fairly. One of the reasons why the politicians are not treating each other fairly is because of the resent election. Because all parties are saying mean things about other parties are saying bad things about other parties but that goes around in circles and I think that is why politicians are not treating each other fairly.
    Thanks Ryen

    Yes I do think they have been treating each other fairly because they are both fighting for it and they both want it really badly and if they didn’t fight then they wouldn’t be going for it. But at the same time I don’t think they have been treating each other fairly because it’s mean how they have been putting adds up like if Tony Abbot win Australia loses and like Kevin Rudd has spent E.G $32,000 in 31 days. I wonder what it would be like in 3 years. That’s how I think they have been treating each other

    Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott are not treating each other fairly because they both want to be government so they fight over it. At the same time I think yes they do because when they are on TV they are sometimes nice to each other but sometimes they’re not. They are nice to each other on TV so people vote for them but I reckon they are not fair when people are not watching.

    I don’t think that the politiciansare treating each other fairly, but I don’t think that they are really telling the truth about each other.

    I believe that the politicians were not treating each other fairly because they were prepared to do nearly anything to become the prime minister, and were doing anything they could to make the opposing side seem bad, instead of their side being better. This may have made some people not too keen on either side due to the fact that some of the things that they were said were lies, thus meaning that by trying to make the other side look bad, they were actually forgetting to make themselves look good. Thus, the whole effort that they put into making the other side look worse was wasted.

    Personally I don’t think they are treating each other fairly because they are saying things about each other that aren’t all true. As we are at the stage of growing up, we look up to them as our leaders and they aren’t setting a good example for us if they are going to say unfair things to each other. It also could tell some people that it’s alright to say things like that, which it isn’t.
    Thanks for reading!

    NO I don’t think politicians treat each other fairly. The trash they talk is a disgrace to us by all means they should be setting an example to kids like myself and many other kids around Australia and Tasmania. That may make kids that want to be prime minister don’t want to do it anymore because of what they heard on tv or around the house. If they are running for prime minister they should be being kind like they do when they want peoples votes. Why don’t they be like that to the opposition because that would get more people to be on their side. Also the adds they put up about each other is a disgrace also its about treating Australia right and to be a supporting leader if they are like that when they want something badly its not right to treat people badly. They should be kind and met their opposition and treat them the way you want to be treated. You don’t have to be popular to win, you need to support your nation and some times its best to just sit back and wait for your turn to come out. When the other politician that’s up against you is talking trash about what your going to do, you just come out and say what’s right and that’s all. You don’t need to do what they’re doing or what other people want you to do. Its what you want.

    The politicians were not treating each other fairly because they were saying lots of things about one another and each party that weren’t true. But in real life when it’s not the campaign and they’re not being rude about each other they actually are nice about each other. I think that no one in government/politics should be being rude about one another or saying stuff that is not true about each other.

    I think it is not fair how the politicians treated each other before the election because they did not tell us what they are going to do. They were more worried of making the position look bad, like putting ads up like if Tony Abbot wins you lose. They have too many posters, booklets and junk mail and it does not impress me. It should not be compulsory because it is the public’s choice if they want to vote or not.
