Swoon...

Apparently Paul Keating gave a speech at Sydney University last night. Edited version here.

Australia's vital interests are in East Asia. They are not in North America or Southern Africa or Europe. They are here, where we live, in the fastest-growing part of the world. It is in this region that Australia's destiny lies; it is only in this region that our security can be found and that will only happen when our foreign policies and our economic and trade policies are in appropriate and sensible alignment.


Ahh...ten years. Ten wasted years.

I hope Captain Kevin point oh seven has the wherewithal to turn the good ship SS Australia back onto the right course.

I didn't think US beer was that strong. He must have been at least point one seven if he didn't remember anything about the pole dancers ;)
