Wanker Of The Day

Brendan Nelson:
Dr Nelson used his speech to warn against judging actions of the past by the standards of the present and said it was correct that no compensation was being offered, because he said no money could compensate for the hurt inflicted on those removed from their familiies.
By that logic, there is also no reason to say "sorry", since mere words cannot compensate for the hurt inflicted on those removed from their families. Good to see that so many turned their backs on him when he spoke.

And isn't John Howard conspicuous by not only his absence from Canberra today, but also his studied silence on this matter. I guess he is still trying to work out whether saying "sorry" is the same as apologising, or vice versa.
