Trading places with morality
I don't normally rate the Courier Mail as an enlightened commentator on political and civil matters, but this article by Paul Gray is worth reading. It highlights the values of a government placing trade way ahead of morality in the conduct of bilateral relations. We have elected a government that weighs trade considerations in making decisions about protecting the lives of its citizens, and invariably comes down on the side of the dollar. I think we deserve better!
