Labor does the right thing on death penalty

I want to echo the support of others for McLelland's (ALP spokesperson on Foreign Affairs) call for Australia to apply a uniform standard on opposition to the death penalty. We look arrogant and hypocritical when we applaud the death sentence for the Bali bombers while decrying death sentences passed on Australians abroad.

Tim Dunlop's piece on News.com is worth a read.
