It's the same everywhere

The government tries something, but fails. The government's answer when it fails? Spend more money on it!

In October, the Australian Government launched a $8 million Australian Youth Forum as a way for young people to voice their opinions.

The first issue was about bullying. It's been up two months and out of the 2 million young people in Australia....40 of them have posted a comment.

The answer? What the government's answer always is. "The Opposition's youth spokeswoman, Sophie Mirabella, says the poor response is evidence money needs to be spent on practical measures as well."
