Our Leader's Arrogance Knows No Bounds

HC has tramped into Manilla and told the President off for their human rights record and is going to get our government to investigate what support it can give human rights organisations in the Phillipines.

She may done it politely and worded it carefully, but that is the bare message.

Just imagine if a foreign leader came here and read such a riot act to us!

Fair enough for political commentators or activists to behave in such a way but for the leader of our country to bowl into another country and do this is outrageous and arrogant in the extreme.

And she's only just redrawn breath after giving JA a telling-off for daring to criticise the good ol' US of A - is this a double standard? Or is she picking on the weak and steering clear of the strong? Isn't that how a bully behaves?

But are we surprised?
