Australian Opposition Leader Bill Shorten: We are united in our grief

July 24th, 2014
03:30 PM ET

by Henry Hullah

When Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 was shot down there were 298 people on board - almost forty of them Australian.

Australian opposition leader Bill Shorten told Amanpour that the Australian government will call for answers to this tragedy in one voice.

"On this matter there is no internal political debate in Australia. We are united in our grief and we are united to get to the bottom of what's happened."

It is a point of union in the otherwise contentious arena of Australian politics.

But the opposition leader has not taken his focus off other issues that impact Australia and its future, particularly climate change.

Prime Minister Tony Abbot's current leadership has led to a unique unwinding of global warming legislation by becoming the first country to repeal a carbon tax law.

It is a decision Shorten vehemently opposed and one he fears will affect people far sooner than they think if no action is taken.

"It's not just for our children and their children. For the current generation climate change is real, and governments will need to act."​

    Once again innocent people have been made to pay the ultimate price because of sheer devious politics of self interest. Who told EU they can inflame Pro Western sentiment in Russias backyard without consequence? Knowing Puttins antecedent. Cameron is just playing the fool again. Because the strong dame of Germany knows her country will die certain definite death without Russias gas. Unlike cameron she's under no illusion likwise France who needs the the contract Kremlin has offered. Besides these two country are not yet willing to yield their topmost Economic position to Britain in Europe. This will soon turnout much the same way he was humiliated in Europe. This is not Libya. Just incase the world hasn't taken note, China and India is Silent on condemnation, and this silence is deafening. Meanwhile innocent get to pay. Just when will we ever learn to respect certain status quo. Russia is in no mood for games. Already they're enforcing an undeclared no flight Zone over East Ukraine. How many more will have to die before we say its enough? When will those involved ever going to swallow their pride and negotiate

    The political leaders of Australia would be well advised to review Wolfsohn's speech to Student's @ Stanford in 2011.
    We understand why Australia is lockstep with the UK & USA. However, a seismic shift is underway in global finance & political power. Within 35 years India & China will account for 45-50% of global GDP. The implications of that and what BRICS are doing now should not be underestimated. New York & London will become a junior partner to New Delhi & Shanghai as global financial centres. The USD will lose importance as a global currency and the IMF, World Bank will shift to Asia from the West. With that shift will come a shift in geopolitical power. Australia, if it is wise, will consider that BRICS are a rising power while London & Washington & Brussels are declining powers in the world. 35 years is not a long time to adapt. Russia will need Europe less and less as it pivots toward the markets of BRICS. BRICS is the future, not Washington & London.
