    some young kids get the message to respect the law and especially so when travelling.
    There is an unspoken law on the road in Bali, drive slow and be patient, you see hundreds of Balos riding around slowly on their bikes in absolute chaotic traffic conditions , they respect each other with no road rage,, then you see some impatient Ausie idiot riding flat out and p!ssed.. I feel embarrassed to be an Ausie when I see that happen..

    I have too!

    It often really is what is in the media, in what country and how high a profile it is!!
    About anything to do with Indonesia Bluey, I can do what the **** I like, pick and choose what/who I like and can be as hypocritical as I want to be!
    It seems this is exactly how Indonesia behaves!! So why be any different on this matter.


    Maybe these people in government should actually try to do something to stop fires from starting instead of continually trying to put out fires.

    Drugs are not going away so we should start thinking outside the box. If there is no money to be made in it will there be as big a problem?? Would it have put these seven in their graves if there was no money to be made??

    He was always going to shoot them, not because he thought they deserved it but what he portrayed to the Indonesian people and the NEED for him to be seen as a strong leader.

    Should they have been executed?? If you are a believer you are asking the wrong entity!

Yes a few people might not go to Bali but within 6 months they will be forgotten and Aussies will be back in Bali because it is cheap.

    Plus I am in no way convinced that the majority of Aussies were against them getting the chop. In fact the majority of those I speak to were all for it. I would dearly love to run a poll of everyone in Australia on it. Reckon you would be surprised with the outcome.

    This is another typical media beat up trying to paint a picture of how Australians feel when the real thing is completely different. The Government waded in as they have to try shore up flagging opinion polls not for the two blokes facing the chop. The media definitely doesn't speak for me and in this case nor does the Government
    Spot on as always Bluey.

    Things that make me grumpy = when the mindless public cannot think for themselves.

    same applied to this drink drive & hooning law. people still drink & drive, people still speeding.
    but what if there is NO PENALTY or PUNISHMENT. there would be MORE people drink & drive, speeding AS WELL AS DIE.
    There must be consequence for actions, or there is no deterrent.
    There is no point making rules or laws if they are not enforced.
    In an ideal world there would be no need for the death penalty, because there would be no drugs, rape, murder,or child molesters.

    Drug smugglers, dealers, rapists, murders, child molesters have no value for the lives they destroy, families they scar, pain they create.

    And theres my point. Australians are allowing the media to speak for us. We need to speak for ourselves not have some pimply faced latte sipping greenie do it via a tabloid peddling minority crap as majority opinion

    That's your choice John but it isn't mine. If I take a stance on something then I don't say its ok for some but not for others.

    That's the real issue. Some ppl are so opposed to the death penalty that they lose focus on what the issue is. These guys broke a sovereign nations law. A very well known and proclaimed law that they apply to their own citizens as well as foreigners. Whether or not I believe they should have been executed really does not enter into it. I don't have a right to have a go at another country about their laws. I can have an opinion but that is as far as it should go.

    Our government went into bat for them as it should. But at the end of the day they exhausted their avenues for appeal and the Indo's enforced their law. How would we feel if the shoe was on the other foot and we had another country having a shot at us about our laws like this

    You have hit on the head Bluey. I have no strong opinion for or against the death penalty. What has pissed me off is the media and the pollies taking advantage of the situation and just spewing out any garbage that gets them exposure. For example Tony Abbot today was quoted as saying "It's a sign that decent people in Indonesia appreciate the anger that Australians feel at these cruel and unnecessary deaths....." So is he implying that anyone who thought Indonesia was just following the law is indecent? Is he also implying that any Australian who thought the Bali bombers got their just deserve is also indecent. For a leader he aint that good with words.
