Senseless hanging changes nothing

Saturday, 3 December 2005

WOULDN'T it be good if the Howard Government matched its rhetoric over Nguyen Van Tuong's death with a full-blooded global campaign against the death penalty? At least, then, the senseless death of this young man would not have been totally in vain.

It is not going to happen, we know, because of the track record of the current Coalition Government and the former Labor Government.

Australia is against the death penalty in principle and objects strongly when one of its citizens is sentenced to death in another country, as it should do, but it does not campaign consistently against it.


Australia abides by the maxim that countries don't interfere in the domestic affairs of other sovereign nations. Trade sanctions against Zimbabwe and the invasion of Iraq are both stark exceptions to the rule. There are numerous others that point to a double standard by many countries, interfering only when it suits their purposes.

"During the slayings, Boyd's son Christopher was pinned under his mother's body as Boyd unloaded a .357-Magnum into her. The boy pushed his way under a bed to escape the barrage. Another son grabbed the pistol while Boyd tried to reload..........."
