Our PM expects us to be selfish

I just heard our esteemed prime minister say that Australian voters should ask themseves: what policy is "best for me and best for my family?" What about what is best for the community as a whole? Best for society?

Obviously we are all expected to vote as selfish myopes, fortifying ourselves from the nasty big wide world that lies ouside our white picket fences.

Thinking outside our own selfishness will surely be far too big a strain! ;-)

The very problem is that this is exactly how so many people are already thinking, about themselves only. And who's responsible for that?
