What is it with Malcom Fraser?I am of an age where I am old enough to remember my hatred of him, but too young to know why.What is it about him now that makes him seem so 'decent'?
Look, I've never been a fan of Fraser, but it seems in his later years he's actually committed to human rights. Gotta be a good thing. He's a still a very conservative guy, but not like many of today's neo-cons, when power is everything. Today's Libs have moved so far to the right...
He's so committed to human rights he helped Bob Mugabwe take over in Zimbabwe- the silly old fart is senile, and an embarassment. He was a hopeless PM and defence minister before that, and is now off with the pixies. Anyone who takes notice of some geezer who can't even control his trousers needs help. I see all the big names have come out for this blather-fest as well; I think I'll be washing my hair that evening.
Hey, what's all this stuff about Western countries and human rights acts? Almost like Western society is somehow...more civilized...than the rest of the world...
Paul, the "which dictators did this politician help into power" game is a good one. Have you applied that logic to any other proponents of human rights? Or is it selective?Sorry you won't be making it to the public meeting, mate. I am sure that you would have a tremendously constructive contribution to make.Shab, that's hopeless.
"Human rights act for Australia campaign launch"There's an old internet acronym that is an excellent reply to your little poster - OMG!And here's another good one- LOL!
