Hate speech

It'll be interesting to see the British mainstream media's reaction to the latest pronouncements of Fraser Anning. The Australian politician used the phrase "final solution" in calling for a return to the White Australia Policy in his first speech to the Senate, and has since insisted "I don't regret anything. I'm not going to apologise or regret anything that I say". Judging from the photos, he doesn't have much hair that he can artfully ruffle in an attempt to seem harmlessly bumbling, and it remains to be seen whether he's got an array of ill-matched mugs in his kitchen cupboard to be able to serve reporters tea.
