The worst of Australian redneck behaviour has started. Some idiot sent a letter containing biological agent (possibly including Anthrax) to the Indonesian Embassy in Canberra. The whole embassy and about 50 staff members are currently quarantined.
Both sides of politics in the Australian Parliament have condemned the criminal act, and apologized to Indonesia.
Leading Australian politicians including Prime Minister John Howard have warned that such criminal acts will hurt rather than help Schapelle Corby in her legal appeal or even application for a presidential pardon.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, there are some Australian bigots who don’t really care about Corby, other than to use her case as an excuse to attack the Indonesians one way or another.
