    i think the key words are "put it in perspective" and "9yo girl abducted and almost raped". if he'd of just said dont let it put you off going there, and left it at that, thats different. you cant in any way shape or form put a girl being abducted and almost raped in perspective, even if it is to encourage people not to boycott the country.

    Horrible incident that happened. Absolutely awful. I felt sick in my stomach when I heard about it.

    But as for Joe Hockey's comments - it was very clearly a 'don't take it out on Indonesia and Bali - it could unfortunately happen anywhere' kind of comment.

    Ok now I know what your talking about yes it does sound like he means don't hate bali because of it. It could have happened in Australia.

    Poor girl and her family what a horrible frightening experience

    I hope he also condemned what happened and showed sympathy?

    It would not surprise me. This is a man who constantly repeated soundbites in the last election relating to Paris Hiltons s3xuality and thought he was funny. It terrifies me that two men with such 1950s attitudes towards women could be running our country with in the next year or two.

    he said it like geez get over it ETA: at least thats how I saw his facial expression

    its about a 9 yo aust girl abducted in bali by a 33 yo who was caught trying to rape her
    my god as a politician you would think he would know better than to say that

    What he mean't was "Don't boycott Bali, this happens everywhere." He was not downplaying the incident AT ALL. Give the poor guy a break. It is very hard to comment on topics off the top of your head on live television. I think some posters are being too sensitive
