Send Barnaby to Indonesia
It is a pity that Barnaby Joyce, a man of tact, diplomacy, nuance and subtlety, isn’t going to Indonesia to fix things up. I know I am disappointed that Barnaby is missing out on this great opportunity, and I am sure the Indonesians feel the same way. [Sarcasm alert.] (0)

Iranian Embassy demonstration

I went to the union demonstration yesterday outside the Iranian embassy in Canberra. There were about 200 people – some of whom were Shah supporters. The buses from Sydney with unionists from the CFMEU, the MUA and others sure helped. We could agree on some slogans – death to the dictator and death to the Islamic republic. I now know a few Farsi words. That won’t help me at all in Iran at the moment. After the revolution it will at least show Iranians where my sympathies lay, but still won’t help me practically to get food or accommodation. But at least in showing sympathy with the Iranian people I have helped them a little in their struggle, if they find out about it.
