I'm sure I speak for a lot (or quite possibly all) of the other Australians participating in Friday's peaceful Peace Rally when I say I'm outraged at being referred to as part of "the mob".
It says something about how out of touch with the Australian public he is, when he refers to us as a mob. I'm betting he's really disappointed there were no arrests amongst the 150,000 of us rallying in Melbourne. Some day soon, he'll either remember or be reminded (via an election result) that he's a public servant. Then again, he's probably going to retire before the next election, so he probably just doesn't care.
