I had a childcare activist come into my clinic this week in a shocking state. She had this extraordinary idea that all Australian children have the right to good quality child care regardless of their parents' ability to pay. What a load of nonsense! I mean, we don't all drive BMWs, we don't all eat at Berowra Waters Inn and we don't all go to Scots and Grammar, or Geelong Grammar and Scotch College - so why on earth should we all expect to have a nanny as good as mine!
