Govern borders as we see fit

Australia's border policy is not for other countries to discuss. It is our right to own it.

Political relations expert and John Howard’s former chief of staff Grahame Morris says he is fed up with foreign activists “giving us curry” about the way Australia governs its borders.

"We will never forget." The French prime minister delivered a powerful, emotional speech at Villers-Bretonneux in honour of the Anzacs:
"Looking at the names of the 11,000 Australians who died for France and for freedom, I could not help thinking of the terrible loneliness which these thousands of young Australians must have felt as their young lives were cut short in a foreign country."

Read the speech in full: "We will never forget that 100 years ago a young and brave nation on the other side of the world made history by writing our history" www.theguardian.com/news/commentisfree/2018/apr/25/the-earth-is-his-only-friend-french-prime-mini...

Malcom certainly didn't deliver a Paul Keating speech, felt sorry for him, it was boring, sack his speech writers! It won't go down in history, but the French prime ministers was beautiful, well thought out, historically accurate and powerful!❤️

The French Prime Minister seems to have a better grasp on the meaning and sanctity of Anzac Day than the commentariat at the ABC. His intonements at Villers-Bretonneux pay due respect to the Australians who gave their lives for France and freedom.

"We cannot relive these stories. The mud, the rats, the lice, the gas, the shellfire, the fallen comrades, we can never truly imagine what it was like. " Such a telling statement. He did an incredible job with this speech, which has been repeatedly shown here in France. As a French citizen and an Australian citizen, I thank Édouard Philippe for delivering this speech/eulogy.

$100 million to build the war memorial in France $500 million to renovate the war memorial in Canberra Money spent on remembering the dead while living veterans are homeless and living in poverty. I want a memorial to my family members who fought in that terrible war, I want a system of trenches dug into some muddy cold barren field. I want it filled with rats, lice, fleas, mud, damp, the rusty wire, the human sewage the stench of cordite gas and death. Fill the air with the constant noise of bullets bombs and the screams of the wounded and dying. I want anyone who takes office as a politician to live in this trench for a month, eating the rations and wearing the clothes of our diggers. No champaign, no polished floors, no climate controlled environment, no slick audiovisual production. Just the reality of what happens when politicians fail to do what they are paid to do. Lest we forget.

He was the best and most moving speaker on the day...

Thank you , Prime Minister. An excellent and moving speech.

reminds me of this excellent Don McLean song on a similar theme: www.youtube.com/watch?v=p05aJNfWib8

I enjoyed the Anzac Girls series very much.

Tahlia Peterson the most beautiful speech

Et les neo-zelandais?????

Great speach

On Anzac Day, we commemorate those lost in war... yet we often don't include the victims of this war. ...

The leftwing lunatic toxic feminists are now poisoning SBS.

No. This is left wing PC garbage and has no place regarding Anzac day. How dare you !

I agree, the British empire invaded Australia, that's not the fault of the convicts or even the soldiers who were sent here to do it, and it's not the fault of the modern Australian law and standards of justice that rebuke that kind of behaviour of former authorities over these lands. The British Empire is dead and buried, officially dissolved back in the late 80's not long after the fall of the soviet union. So while Anzac's technically served the British in the World Wars all it means is Indigenous Australia was ahead of its time in the Frontier Wars, they were misunderstood but now the truth is clear, Indigenous were right, the empire was wrong. How awesome are Indigenous? Took on the then most powerful force the planet had ever seen, fighting for our freedom against an oppressive empire.

Speaking of war, Iran has conducted 23 missle test in the last 12 months, is refusing to allow UN inspectors into their nuclear sites, and increased enrichment production in all nuclear reactors. You should probably start reporting on Iran for the next war.

Yes, as Australians we don't have any loyalty to the British empire any more, the British empire no longer exists, even the British have no loyalty to it, those empire systems are debunk and were replaced by rule of law systems. So in that context it wasn't Australia nor Britain to blame, it's a Beast that is now dead that did it, we have no excuse not to recognise our Indigenous citizens over a dead and buried empire.

Errr... That has nothing to do with ANZAC Day, that's why. And we have a perfectly good War Memorial here in Australia.

Here we go again
