Blog comments Your Say

  • Perhaps having a seat at the Security Council Australia will move a little more towards a neutral position rather than persistently and unquestioningly supporting the US in its global agendas. The countries that support Australia's bid should make it a condition of their support that they relinquish the position of loyal US backer.

    Did I hear someone say they won't arrest their employers?
