@ben_hr one of the great ironies of Australian culture is that it would never occur to us to repudiate Rhodes, despite recipients of his scholarship being the worst elements of our public life

@mikelynch @ben_hr when I was in student politics these people were a fucking plague. Ticking the box for ’leadership’ by running for things without a point.

And when I, as a former student politician, look down on a class of strivers, that’s a hard judgement

@liamvhogan @mikelynch @ben_hr I prefer the term “child politicians” over student politicians, it more accurately describes the scale of maturity involved
