    Bob's Speech in '87 was a boo boo that he should have corrected immediately. He expressed his own aspiration for the nation, not what was written in his speech.

    My perception is that poverty is worse today than 1987 and far far worse than in the 1960's when I was growing up.
    Something has gone wrong in this country.

    WS's aspiration that all Australian children should be able to swim could not be disputed by any Australian.

    Teaching someone to swim is not rocket science. Any swimmer should be able to teach a non-swimmer friend, or child to swim. Something has gone wrong in this country.

    Its not just children at risk. I have Vietnamese friends who go rock fishing and cannot swim. I can't get them near a pool to teach them.
