We’d be shocked if mainstream media and politicians sprouted fundamentalist Islamic extremism. In Britain, a few right-wing nut jobs might be given a little media exposure, but in Australia they are given prime time TV shows. More shocking is how a Queensland politician used the atrocity as an opportunity to quote a passage from the bible to justify the actions of the shooters. How has society got so much wrong. The political process has to take part of the blame – the UK needs to avoid a voting system like Australia if we are to avoid seeing extremists like this sitting in the House.
