It's absolute tokenism ... it's a pittance.

I was prepared; Mum wasn't.

She didn't do it. She should be free, ... I was expecting the Australian government to do something. We're not happy in this sentence and we will appeal immediately.

I suppose they have to be seen to be upholding the Muslim or Indonesian way and she's been made to carry the can.

It's really bad - the hospital is not coping.

At least four people have passed away and one is being resuscitated right in front of me.

I would love a skipping rope. My body wants to play sport.

Do you want to see the Bali bombers?
