Today's edition of The Australian carries a letter to the editor that should never have been printed.
The letter writer is wrong. The writer's understanding of geography is abysmal.
The letters editor should have seen the error in the letter, but perhaps the editor knows no better. Then again, the letter suits the agenda of this rabid right wing rag that pretends to be a national newspaper.
Here's the letter:
Last Post, July
Kevin Rudd, a former diplomat, less than 48 hours into his new/old job, is talking up conflict with our nearest neighbour. Is this a record?
Roseanne Schneider, Yeronga, Qld
For the record, Indonesia is not Australia's nearest neighbour.
