An open letter to the Prime Minister

Dear Mr. Howard,
It is great to see you’ve finally accepted your moral limitations. Some of my friends were a little confused when they heard you had ruled out a conscience vote on mandatory sentencing despite all the national and international pressure which was being brought to bear in an attempt to stop the Northern Territory Government killing indigenous juveniles who had committed minor property offences. Fortunately I was able to explain to my friends your reason for ruling out such a vote was that you have no conscience.
Yours sincerely
