Did DPM infer Aussie soldiers were evil murderers?

Have you ever seen an ageing gentleman of good upbringing turn purple, with steam coming out of his ears?

You might have, if you were in my company yesterday.

When the Deputy Prime Minister of Australia was asked for his thoughts on the subject of special courts for terrorism offences, this is what he responded…

Ah, well, you know it’s a question for the attorney-general. I think that we’ve got very strong anti-terrorism laws. If people want to break the law they’ll suffer the consequences, and you know, people coming back from engagement overseas obviously means that they were overseas trying to murder people, and murdering is against the law, and if you want to go overseas and murder other people, um well you’re an evil person, and if what you really want to do is be involved in a conflict then join the Australian Army and do it legally.

I sincerely hope the man second in charge of this here country did not seriously mean what he appears to have said.

I sincerely hope he seeks to clarify and/or apologies for inferring that Australian soldiers are evil or bloodthirsty murderers.

 

Or maybe, just maybe, this inarticulate ‘gentleman’ should keep his mouth shut lest he stick a dung-covered wellie in it again.
