Successive govt's have been utterly useless in dealing with aviation and the various authorities ie casa, atsb are no better.

Speaking to the engineers, pilots and flight attendants would seem to be a good place to start as they are the ones directly involved. Truss is as useful as his useless predecessor. Thank goodness for blokes like Nick Xenophon.

Abbott government ministers meet to discuss Germanwings crash


Wouldn't it be reasonable to ask the pilots what they think ? After all. it's their asses on the line, and they know how planes , airlines , and the system works.

Oh, wait a minute , the " government " must be seen to be in control of all things, especially those things it knows absolutely nothing about. No doubt the spin doctors see it as a chance for the government to get cheap kudos.

In my opinion, if things were dangerous, the pilots would have been squawking loudly long before this.

A simple tribute to a former Aussie Political leader gets turn every which way but the direction in what it was meant to be.

Thank you very much, wasn't going to press the point. Having been born before the outbreak of WW2 and having watched the Battle of Britain fought above our house as an infant and seeing the pilot's parachutes hanging in trees, it's impossible not to take a greater interest in that era's leaders in later life.

As a consequence France is my favourite holiday location, and to enter any French church, WW2 is ever present.

Sometimes I think Australia gets a bit one eyed over leaders, eg the other day another political colossus in Lee Kuan Lee died, without comment here but well covered in the Press.

My point being the world doesn't begin and end in and with, Australia.

We all have our opinions on these things of course. Winston was a product of the Victorian & Edwardian ages and not many of us change attitudes we grew up with.
He seems to have always been fascinated by the "soft underbelly of Europe" which drew him into the debacle of Gallipoli and subsequently Crete & Greece in WW2.
Whatever his faults over a long life however, they deserve to be swept aside by the magnificent leadership he displayed against Hitler both before & during the war.

Mookie,

Totally agree. Heard Howard address public meetings a number of times. He was a brilliant speaker off the cuff and without notes.
