    He is still the same sleazy, evil little creep who came up with the idea of trading humans to Malaysia and praising him for anything at all is beneath contempt.

    I don’t expect anyone, least of all a time serving apparatchik, to have “all the answers” to everything – I’d be happy if they could just manage meaningful questions.
    Unfortunately that is not on any political agenda – Bowen is still sticking to the mid 20thC script.

      Agree a time serving, petulant dud.
