Opinion: Hear the Bugle Call – Brave and courageous or outrageous?

DEFENCE Minister Richard Marles’ inspired decision to open ADF recruiting to non-Australians was, well, brave and courageous.

Or was he being courageously braver when he seemed to sidestep responsibility and credit his deputy Veterans Affairs Minister Matt Keogh instead?

Either way it was a decision you make when you are not making a decision about something which has existed for decades. albeit this time with a glace cherry impaled on a paper umbrella to make it appear more attractive.
