‘It was a stupid re­ac­tion after the goal. I can see he was ex­cited but after he was booked, it was not so smart,’ Manch­ester United man­ager Louis Van Gaal re­act­ing to Robin Van Per­sie’s re­ac­tion in their re­cent match against Chelsea FC. The Dutch striker scored in the dy­ing seconds of stop­page time to res­cue Manch­ester United but was booked for tak­ing off his shirt. ‘We have made the changes be­cause we feel that this party needs a new face and new lead­er­ship that will lift us for­ward. I think that we are rel­e­vant and still have a huge role to play in build­ing the coun­try.

The party changed its name to Amani Na­tional Congress. ‘We aren’t go­ing to send Aus­tralian doc­tors and nurses into harm’s way with­out be­ing ab­so­lutely con­fi­dent that all of the risks are be­ing prop­erly man­aged, and at the mo­ment, we can­not be con­fi­dent that that is the case. The spec­u­la­tion around Aus­tralia not be­ing pre­pared is not cor­rect. Aus­tralia is pre­pared in a re­gional sense,’ Aus­tralia Prime Min­is­ter Tony Ab­bott re­spond­ing to re­quests from US and UK to send med­i­cal staff to West Africa. If it’s not con­tained, US au­thor­i­ties warn 1.4 mil­lion could be in­fected by mid-Jan­uary. US and UK have sent med­i­cal and De­fence per­son­nel to West Africa. Aus­tralia has not.
