It was very interesting to hear yet another homily on obedience from the unelected Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, given, as it were , on the run, during yet another incredibly important overseas visit. It seems that the PM believes that the violence from those incarcerated at Villawood is just oh so unacceptable. Never mind [...]
