If this is what Australia voted for then it would seem most of us have a very poor opinion of ourselves. We deserve better than this.

The New South Wales government funded a $16m education project closely associated with the spouse of a state minister despite a cost-benefit analysis showing the project would be unlikely to deliver a positive benefit to the state.
The 2016 analysis of the proposed Country Universities Centres has surfaced after a call for papers by the NSW Legislative Council. The project was proposed by Duncan Taylor, husband of the upper house Nationals MP Bronwyn Taylor, who at the time was parliamentary secretary to John Barilaro, the state Nationals leader and deputy premier.
