At home with Cory Bernardi

Crikey readers talk consular compassion (or lack thereof) and envision dinner chez Bernardi.

So much for consular compassion

Moira Dempsey writes: Re. “All expenses paid: is consular help too generous?” (yesterday). I was just reading your article about the cost of consular assistance, and it came to mind that actually the consular service does not always offer service to Australians abroad — or didn’t — and don’t always care.
Some 22 years ago I was involved in an accident in Kota Kinabalu Sabah, Malaysia — a quite serious accident. The person I was with was a volunteer with what was then Australian Volunteers Abroad. I had been a volunteer as well, however was in Malaysia on holiday at the time.

    John – fact is that the world hasn’t warmed for 15 years. Why? Otherwise, nice to see we agree.

    Ian – I didn’t say all opinions were equal, just that none should be excluded from the debate. We can judge each argument on its merits.

    Roy – happy new year!

    Because you’re cherry-picking the time period to show the result you want to present.
