Zitat des Tages von John Hewson:
To send our troops, our ships, our planes to this war is ridiculous.
I had this habit of an academic of answering the question. I should have fobbed it off.
I was just absolutely exhausted. The media said I've been treated for a nervous breakdown. All that stuff I just took as people taking the opportunity when you're down to give you a kick.
I'm not tied to any particular political line.
I never wanted to separate from either wife. It was accumulated stress. We had virtually no time to ourselves. After politics we were both working very hard to establish new careers.
The only person you resent is yourself.
It's not just the war itself. It's what you do after the war and what structure you put in place and how you make that structure work.
I've been arguing this for months. This is not our war. This is not a war we should be in. Australia's better spending its time negotiating with North Korea.
I think the Prime Minister has embarked on a journey and he has no idea where he's taking us.
Hussein has a strategy. I'm sure he'll implement that strategy, and it would be to our detriment. We're embarking on an exercise about which we know nothing.
We've lost sight of our role in the region and our view of our colleagues in the region.
Tony Blair will probably get thrown out by his party.
To make us a terrorist target in a region that is full of terrorism is dumb and unforgiveable.
I was not a politician.
