Julia Gillard castigates Tony Abbott for misogyny. Her fiery speech praised in US media. Cartoon 2012-10-11
This cartoon was a response to Malcolm Fraser’s speech at Asialink on the dangers of the US policy of containment of China and the risk of Australia being drawn into a war with China against our interests and wishes. The Australian government appears to be floundering in its response to both the desire of China to invest in Australian mining and agriculture, and to the expansion of Chinese power and influence in the Asia/Pacific.
