If only…

I have been meaning to comment for a couple of days on Q and A (ABC, Monday 9 June).
A really interesting panel, brilliantly hosted by the impressive Virgina Trioli. The standout memory for me, however, was the oh-so-welcome contributions of Malcolm Turnball and Chris Bowen.
Throughout the program they gave thoughtful and sensible views and presented them calmly and totally without vitriol. There was no negative, party politicing or aggression. What a wonderful exception to the bottom-of-the-barrel norm.
Thank you so much, Malcolm and Chris for that welcome glimpse of statemanship, and the reminder of what political debate is meant to be like.
Did anyone else see it and do you agree? Also, do you share my disgust at the general state of politics in this country at the moment?
