Australian self-interest through Asian eyes

Asian diplomats are too polite to tell Australians how they are really viewed from abroad. One policy area in particular is diminishing our standing.

As many Australians prepare for a holiday marking the most important Christian festival of year, it’s worth remembering that Jesus of Nazareth began life as a refugee, taken to Egypt to escape King Herod’s slaughter of male infants.

The refugee family eventually went home, so there was no need to transfer the infant to an offshore detention facility – I mean, who’d even think of doing that?
