Weekend Australian Chris Kenny

Chris Kenny wrote a piece in the Weekend Australian which started with...
Common sense is denounced as dog-whistling.

This was in relation to Scott Morrison's quick fired retort regarding refugees in the neighbourhood and the need to keep tabs on where they are and who they are.

It was a measured article. It was for the public to use their brains and see through the hype, the scaremongering and the 'racist' taunts.
Granted Scott should have thought a little bit before he opened his mouth and Chris says just that...

"Now we might say in hindsight that Morrison could have added caveats, qualifiers and words of assurance - if only to insulate against the inevitable backlash attack  - as he did in later interviews..."

Common sense must prevail. Thanks Chris Kenny for a common sense approach.
