Good on you, Melbourne…
For those who didn’t know, the newly elected Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has formally apologised to Aboriginal Australians for the last two centuries of mistreatment.
The current opposition leader, Brendan Nelson, who has taken the place of John Howard (the man famous for refusing to apologise) as head of the Liberal Party, has somehow gotten to speak after the apology.
It was broadcast on the big TV screens at Federation Square, and, according to ABC news reports on the Apology,
“In Federation Square about three-quarters of the crowd turned their back on Dr Nelson.”
I am impressed. Was anyone there?
