From the EvilPundit...
Latham's wedge politics
According to Triplejay news, opposition leader Mark Latham has played the race card in his campaign to become Prime Minister. He has promised, if elected, to apologise to the so-called "stolen generations" of Aborigines for largely imaginary offences committed against them.

By promising this, he is trying to drive a wedge between Aboriginal Australians and other Australians. He is trying to portray one part of our community as guilty of some unproven offence, and the other part as victims, based entirely on their ethnic heritage.

The Labor Party has once again brought divisive racial politics into an election.
