I am deeply concerned by the racist attitudes of the leaders of Australia’s LNP Government and their inability to effect an Australian Foreign Policy that is not British, American and Eurocentric in nature.

Alienation of our most important trading partner and increasingly sycophantic overtones to America along with increased arms and weapons industry development, as well as military spending, represent a disastrous foreign policy trend.

Little of promise comes from the ALP, apart from the recent decision to distance ourselves from nuclear proliferation. Although there is little evidence that much would change in terms of reduced military spending and a more common sense approach to Foreign Policy in an ALP led government.
