Editorial: Howard's drastic solution

The NZ Herald comments on John Howard's necessary steps to alleviate aboriginal neglect.

[quote]Policies of so-called "empowerment' have clearly exhausted the patience of Australians. The policies have certainly had time to work and the abject condition of Aboriginal townships, not only in the Northern Territory, attests to their failure. Dispirited people need help, not self-government, and children raised in squalor need protection, not platitudes. Let us hope these drastic steps make a difference.[/quote]

Kevin Rudd best pack up and go home now, as "Little Johnny" has once again proven who is the better politician.
