    Many thanks for the link to Abbott’s Honi Soit piece. Strewth, ‘homosexual posters’, I was unaware of such things.

    I assume, from the date on TA’s original article, that 1979 was the year they came out.

    Ugh! My eyes are bleeding after seeing that photo (see cut-out tony abbott) and reading the article didn’t make me feel any better.

    The South Korean Foreign Minister in the 80s was Lee Bum Suk, at least until he got blown up in a terrorist incident, possibly in Rangoon.
    The Saudi oil minister throughout the 80s was Faqmi, pronounced F**k me which was his attitude to western complaints of OPEC prices gouging.
