KEVIN’S NEVER-NEVER LAND
Kevin Rudd’s sorry speech:
For the pain, suffering and hurt of these stolen generations, their descendants and for their families left behind, we say sorry.
To the mothers and the fathers, the brothers and the sisters, for the breaking up of families and communities, we say sorry ...
This parliament resolves that the injustices of the past must never, never happen again.
“Never, never” turns out not to be a very long time:
Abusive Queensland mums and dads will have one year to become better parents or risk having their children taken away permanently.
