Singapore to hang an Australian

Firstly, let me say this guy should not have had drugs on him in Singapore. Secondly, it is said that this guy is going to lose his life and there is none of the media outrage of the Corby case. This is clearly because he has an Asian background and our commerical media therefore does not give a shit.
Finally, Downer claims he has done everything that Australia could do for this guy. This is crap. There is a lot more Australia could actually have done for this guy. For one thing, the Singapore Government owns a huge assets base here in Australia including some fairly major companies. The government could freeze these assets. We also have Singapore's soliders training in Australia. He could have that stopped. The reason neither of these steps has been taken is simple: the damage to Australia is greater than saving this guy. But when Downer claims he has done every single thing possible it is crap.
And then it looks as if Indonesia is going to shot either three or four of the Bali Nine. How their deaths will affect the Australian Public Opinion is still unknown.

    I completely agree with you. doesn't happen often I know. this is a bad sign for Australia, letting other people kill australians is morially the same as killing them yourself. then there is the whole issue of the fed cops helping the indonesian police bust the aussies in bali.
