a fair and decent society.
Gillard # Economy,
- As our
economy faces up to potential labour shortages due to our
ageing population and as it moves to a new level of sophistication
to compete with the rest of the world, we're going to need

- My name
is Kevin, I'm from Queensland, and I'm here to help.

who face capital sentences abroad.
Rudd # Government,

sentenced to 20 years for importing marijuana, Abu Bakar Bashir
gets 30 months for participating in the murder of nearly 100
