A perfect example of how a mania for “fairness” just makes us all equally stupid – or, in this bash-the-rich Budget context, equally poor.

Tim Blair:

Here in Australia, the ABC has questioned whether parents should read to their children before bedtime, claiming it could give your kids an “unfair advantage” over less fortunate children.

“Is having a loving family an unfair advantage?” asks a story on the ABC’s website.

“Should parents snuggling up for one last story before lights out be even a little concerned about the advantage they might be conferring?”…

ABC presenter Joe Gelonesi … responded online: “This devilish twist of evidence surely leads to a further conclusion that perhaps — in the interests of levelling the playing field — bedtime stories should also be restricted.”…

Asked if it might be just as easy to level the playing field by encouraging other parents to read bedtime stories, Gelonesi said: “We didn’t discuss that.”

Not unconnected:

The second showed Bill Shorten using the word “millionaire” 14 times in one press conference.

He wasn’t complimenting them on their enterprise, prudence or hard work.
