Never ending government responsibility

Kiddies don't know how to swim? It's not a parental problem, it's our problem:
It should be the responsibility of the Australian Government to ensure that every child in Australia has these vital swimming and safety skills.
Exactly what parents are responsible for is uncertain.

Update: A suggested pre-emptive strike on drink driving:
The Social Democrats have proposed that all new cars sold in Sweden be equipped with ignition locks to prevent a vehicle from starting if the driver is intoxicated.

Kinda going to disagree here.

I was in primary school in the *cough* 70's and we had swimming lessons as part of the sports curriculum. That was something useful and important.

Why has this stopped?

Have school insurance premiums reduced school sports to chess and lawn bowls? Have the political indoctrination programmes squeezed swimming lessons out? Have the schools received their copies of An Inconvenient Truth and instructions to show it weekly? Are children not allowed to wear swimming costumes during school hours to be sensitive to other cultures?

As for the update, it's a complete waste of money. Sharia law in Sweden will soon forbid any consumption of alcohol
