Being treated fairly under the law. An interesting sidelight to the efforts of Julia Assange to avoid extradition to Sweden for fear of being treated unfairly and sent on to the United States: the only reputable ranking of major world countries according to their respect for the rule of law that I have come across puts Sweden at the head of the list. Ecuador does not make the top 30.

    Thanx for refuting the Australian’s latest flimsy attack on Labor.

    Why is it that the ghastly Murdoch cannot understand that government governs for 22 million Australian and not a few thousand whingeing business executives. Tell ’em to buzz off quick smart.

    Contrary to popular belief, they are easily replaceable.
