Magnificent spinning

A great example of the political spinner’s art in the reaction of Julia Gillard to criticism by the Education Union of the way federal funds are distributed in favour of private schools at the expense of government ones. It was classic  ”don’t mention the war” stuff as the Education Minister simply ignored those comments to declare: “The Rudd Government has welcomed a report released today by the Australian Education Union on school funding.This report highlights the unprecedented investment the Rudd Government is making in Australian schools.”
