"Make Up Your Own Mind"

Fr Frank Brennan SJ AO, Chair of the National Human Rights Consultation Committee, presenting the findings of the National Human Rights Consultation at the National Press Club

Health, education and housing were revealed by Fr Frank Brennan to be at the forefront of the roundtable community discussions and submissions, which form the basis of the National Human Rights Consultation Report.

"We need to take responsibility for each other," he said.

He also very diplomatically chastised the Murdoch press, particularly Paul Kelly.

The Murdoch press have demonstrated they are against Australia having a Bill of Rights.

Interestingly, a Channel 7 journalist asked a question today - along with journalists from Fairfax, AAP and the Canberra Times.

Of course no Murdoch scribes asked any questions. As we've obsverved before, they never appear at NPC addresses if a speaker's topic is likely to challenge some neocon agenda being pushed by their publications.

You might also want to bear in mind who is on the Board of the ABC, when listening to any discussion on their radio or television shows about a Bill of Rights.

Fr Brennan called on Australians to make up their own minds about a Bill of Rights.

And indeed you should. Read the report.

PS We're still waiting for the Prime Minister to fulfil his promise that he would re-instate the position of Staff Member on the Board of the ABC.
