Paul Keating Reminds Us We Are Australians

5 mins 12 mths

It was refreshing and darn right funny to watch Paul Keating give a good old dressing down to the press gallery over China fears. It showed clearly how journalism in Australia is in a parlous state. Paul Keating reminds us we are Australians. Youngsters brought up in the halls of Murdoch’s News Corp with no breadth of knowledge or experience to draw upon. All of them singing from the same song sheet about the dangers of China. Keating pointed out how much American interests drive this fear mongering. The Americans don’t like the fact that another powerhouse has risen to challenge their hegemony. You cannot escape from the ingrained racism underpinning the China debate in this country and in all western nations.
