Quote: Sir Robert Menzies

With the worsening situation in Bangkok and the closer attention to northern enighbours in the last few years, it is appropriate to recall some words from Sir Robert Gordon Menzies (1894 - 1978), Prime Minister of Australia 1939-1941 and 1949-1966:

"What Great Britain calls the Far East is to us the near north."
