Alarmed about se­cu­rity

The Weekend Australian - - COMMENTARY -

Peta Credlin’s ar­ti­cle should ring alarm bells within our na­tional se­cu­rity agen­cies at the very least (“Premier plays dan­ger­ous for­eign pol­icy game”, 9/11). She cites the real pos­si­bil­ity of Manchurian can­di­dates in this month’s Vic­to­rian elec­tion while Re­becca Ur­ban lists the num­ber and re­lated costs of Vic­to­rian La­bor MPs’ vis­its to China. The rea­sons pro­vided for the trips are be­yond the pale.

WA Premier Mark McGowan has backed Daniel An­drews ask­ing why he is be­ing treated dif­fer­ently from Colin Bar­nett’s deal with China in 2011. McGowan needs a his­tory les­son be­cause the il­le­gal es­tab­lish­ment of mil­i­tary bases on atolls in the South China Sea were not known then. Mike Flani­gan, Toowoomba, Qld
