What Was Said: The UN Security Council Bid

"There are vastly higher priorities for Australia right now than pursuing a seat on the security council,"
-Tony Abbott, July 2010

“Instead of swanning around in New York talking to Africans, she should be in Jakarta right now trying to sort out the border protection disaster...The problem with this whole Security Council bid is that it costs money. Worse, it’s distorted our priorities over the last few years as so much time and effort goes into this and not into managing the relationships that are absolutely vital to our future.”
-Tony Abbott, September 2012
