Very good Jess. If you’re hoping to change all that here is a very friendly comment and a suggestion of where you could start. When all people from the state of Tasmania stop referring to the other states as “The Mainland” and either refer to “NSW’ or Victoria” or “The other states of Australia” in their conversations and written material I will believe there is real change coming about. Sorry to say but it is a subtle and far too common “Tasmanian mindset” that gets instilled into people from a young age and sets them up to under perform. Sure there are people not affected by it and other people that have set themselves to overcome it, whether they realise it or not, but the general population is carrying it around and it’s very very damaging to the future of Tasmania to persist in it. Too simple a solution? maybe, maybe not.
