PRIME Minister Julia Gillard and Opposition Leader Tony Abbott were trapped in a Canberra building for up to half an hour after 200 Aboriginal protesters stormed the entrance this afternoon.
The unnamed journalist who penned the piece lays the blame at Abbott’s feet.
Abbott is quoted in a speech in Sydney where he suggests it’s time to close down the gathering of rabble otherwise known as the Aboriginal Tent embassy.
Mr Abbott said he understood why the tent embassy was set up “all those years ago”.
“I think a lot has changed for the better since then,” he told reporters.
“I think the indigenous people of Australia can be very proud of the respect in which they are held by every Australian.
“I think a lot has changed since then, and I think it probably is time to move on from that.”
Sounds about right. For a gathering of rabble rousers to be in situ for 40 years does seem a bit much.
Maybe they had been drinking commiserating with each other over “Invasion Day”. Whatever, they are idiots and they have done their cause a lot of damage.
