At the last possible moment, Australia has been done the right thing and said it will not be sending delegates to the UN’s Geneva Conference for Racism and Anti-Semitism (commonly called Durban II).
The conference is due to start on the 120th anniversay of the birthday of Adolf Hitler.
This means our illustrious leaders will miss words of wisdom from planned speakers like Iranian President Imanutjob.
Australia will join the US, Italy, Germany, Canada, and a number of other countries.
Some in the US have complained that by not going, President Barack Obama is losing a chance to show leadership. The truth is exactly the reverse.
Well done Obama. Well done Kevin.
