Labor spends millions for UN seat
Prime Minister Gillard is in New York to discuss the final push for Australia to win a non-permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council. Jason Morrison on what the position would mean for Australia.

Jason Morrison says it's great to see arrests of those sending hate messages to Muslims online, but are there double standards? Is it a reality that hate crimes are considered one directional? Have Your Say!
Underage drinkers and parents could be fined up to $1000 for attempting to enter licenced premises or bottle shops. John Stanley looks at the fight underway to curb binge drinking and to stop the violence.
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.Terrence Sunday 30 September, 2012 - 12:19 PM
If you have to pay bribes then you are as bad as the people recieving the bribes so much for the inaffective UN which has no more purpose in the world it has been usurped by the filth of the world and undermined, time to walk away from it.mick Thursday 27 September, 2012 - 2:14 PM
What was the money used for? greasing the palms of foreign diplomats and countries, if so the Australian Federal Police should be doing the work that they took an oath to uphold and arrest and charge many people with paying bribes!
Did I hear someone say they won't arrest their employers?Bikinis not burkas! Wednesday 26 September, 2012 - 3:12 AM
@Bikinis not burkas! Unfortunately, you are right.

The useless Gillard minority socialist government would not know the meaning of the phrase "Charity begins at home." This is $40 Million of borrowed money piddled up against a wall. Little wonder the National Debt is now fast approaching more than $350 BILLION DOLLARS. I am disgusted.Luigi T Cassimatis Tuesday 25 September, 2012 - 11:25 AM
This money would have been better spent in Australia.Ray Tuesday 25 September, 2012 - 8:15 AM
