The Sydney Morning Herald: “Britain to examine the conviction of ‘Breaker’ Morant” 10 February 2010

Hasn’t the Attorney-General got better things to do (Britain to examine the conviction of ‘Breaker’ Morant’, 10/2/10) than try and seek an acquittal from the Queen for a long dead soldier?  What a mockery of our top legal position.  War crimes, such as what occurred in Gaza last year are covered-up and ignored.  The Australian Government is among a minority of nations that rejected the recommendations of Richard Goldstone, the head of a UN Fact finding Mission into Gaza, who simply called for both the Government of Israel and Hamas to have an open and transparent investigations.  While the UN Headquarters can be firebombed with phosphorus; schools and hospitals attacked; our Government’s top lawyer sticks his head in the sand and dreams about the injustice to one man 100 years ago.  Morant is dead.  If he is as great a hero as people make him out to be then I am sure he would be ashamed that our nation’s leaders make a fuss about him while rejecting the Goldstone report and allow the one-and-a-half million people in Gaza to continue to live in a prison; at the mercy of their neighbour.
