    Regarding Julie Bishop and her confusions.

    On Insiders when trying to smooth Abbots gaffe in calling Japan an ally which would offend China she said that an ally was really only one you had a defence treaty with and that in Australia’s case that was the USA only via ANZUS.

    Forgive me but isn’t the NZ part of ANZUS for New Zealand and if so is our Foreign Minister dismissing NZ or doesn’t she now about our principal defence treaty?

    Oh well I guess offending NZ is a far lesser gaffe than offending China but being clumsy and uneducated

    No shortage of money for message massagers, eh.
