Senator JOYCE (Leader of the Nationals in the Senate) (4:20 PM) —Very briefly, to concur with the remarks that have been offered by Senator Evans and Senator Minchin, it is unfortunately poignant that we are also remembering the death of Private Benjamin Ranaudo—showing a clear link to what this is all about. Our thoughts are with Craig Senger’s family, Nathan Verity’s family and Garth McEvoy’s family. I acknowledge the comments of Senator Minchin—that the people who committed this atrocity are out to destroy us and also the people of Indonesia, but all they have managed to succeed in doing is to bring Australia and Indonesia ever closer together. We can build from that platform to finally defeat them.
