So the Australian Embassy AKA the Australian taxpayer AKA me , has deigned it appropriate and cordial to try and buy back the affection of those Indonesians so disaffected by our foreign policies ( Drug smugglers, Refugees, Angry Muslims ) .

Good luck with that tactic.

If it wasn't my money I'd be doubled over with laughter.

So Let me get this right - the tax deducted from my hard graft in Australia is paying for a contest that will prohibit me from being able to surf in Bali.

So two dozen Brazilians can further their dreams of making surfing an even larger sport in Brazil.

Awesome.

Weird sponsor…but hey its nothing compared to the money that our government wasted on those dead drug smuggling scum, not to mention souring important relations

Anyway speaking of Bali great to see the Bali boycott has been a complete failure with the continuing trend this year of tourist numbers being up http://thejakartaglobe.beritasatu.com/business/indonesia-may-tourist-arr...
