Commo MP arrested
Green Commo MP Rhiannon has been detained by the Sri Lankan authorites for visa infringements.
Ms Rhiannon has been in the country studying the Sri Lanka’s human rights record, and says she has seen evidence of extreme government repression.What the hell is an Australian minor party politician doing in a foreign country calling them to order over anything – let alone their human rights record? Get back you clown and see what you can do to help your electorate. Failing that maybe Sri Lanka could be encouraged to keep her. It would certainly lift the standards of politicians in Australia. UPDATE: Damn! She has been released.
Hang on, it isn’t over yet – surely we can take a page from the Indon playbook and refuse to allow them to return her?
