    1. The Aus Ambassador in UK, is on Australian govt. assignment. Like all senior level, long term overseas assignments, include annual leave with passage home. Mr George Brandis is in UK, on Australia Fed govt assignment. So recent holidays back home, is perfectly acceptable and valid. Comparing this to others struck overseas is dumb. Angry at Ch 7, made me watch an eye doctor cribb during 25/1 @7 am news. She may have 700 patients history in her clinic. Urgent cases will find another doctor. Fact is no one is indispensable, the team India in Gabba cricket test is a proof.
