Minor factual error and related comment

Reader comment on item: Islamists, Get Out

Submitted by Warren Marshall (Australia), Aug 30, 2005 at 18:33

Premier Bob Carr of New South Wales retired early in August and was no longer Premier at the date of this article. The new premier is Morris Yemma.

Bob Carr was unusually forthright within the Australian Labor Party in support of security measures for the protection of Australian society against those who would seek to undermine it. In many respects, his views on security more closely resemble those of Australia's Liberal and National Parties, which make up the Australian federal goverment coalition.

We are yet to see whether Premier Yemma presents similar forthright views and approaches to these all-important issues.
