Palmer, like Hanson, is drawing out poison

The PUP leader's assertions about China are foolish and paranoid, but they will also flush out latent prejudices in the electorate to the benefit of our democracy.

At the time of writing we still do not know whether the video and pictures purportedly showing the beheading of American journalist James Foley by Islamic State militants are authentic.

Foley was captured in Syria two years ago, and the Islamic State insurgents in the video claim it is retribution for US airstrikes in Iraq.

What we can be more certain of is that more than 50 journalists have been killed covering the Syrian conflict.
