Cartoons dog Aussie relations
The latest cartoons row is between Australia and Indonesia. In response to the Aussies giving visas to a group of 42 Papuan asylum seekers, which narked the Indonesians, the newspaper Rakyat Merdeka published a cartoon depicting Aussie PM and Foreign Minister as mating dingoes. Yesterday The Weekend Australian retaliated with a cartoon by Bill Leake depicting President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono as a dog mounting another dog, apparently a Papuan. Where will it all end? Puppies, anyone?
