Can you believe these people? We go to all the trouble of making an apology and then they expect us to mean it! Cartoon by Fiona Katauskas

Very interesting comment. I was very moved by the apology but always felt that I, like most other current generation Australians, had committed no wrong against our Aboriginal people and that the apology let England off the hook. I think QEII should formally apologise and then the apology will "mean" something much more. Perhaps QEII should sign a treaty as did her forebears with the NZ Maori people and pay compensation rather than leaving the latter to today's Australian taxpayers. Time the chickens came home to roost in "Mother England" !

Brilliant Fiona, but tragically so apt.

And not to be satisfied with wishy-washy Turnbull and maybe/maybe not Shorten, we now have to cope with 'don't confuse me with facts I've made up my mind' Joyce, Christensen, and the rest of the right-wingers from Queensland.

Treaty. Yeah?

An apology accompanied by a proper fix is what was needed. Was needed. Several apologies, starting with Keating at Redfern and being repeated every few years or so without fixes, is valueless, unless we expect the First Peoples to be like God who patiently listens to the same recidivists in the confessional over and over. Perhaps we should save the apology until we decide what and how to compensate.
