Courage and grace under fire

How impressive is Gillian Triggs – President of Australia’s Human Rights Commission? She inspired another reallyinterestingperson (Fiona McLeod SC) to take up a legal career. Triggs is promising to be an antidote to the Orwellian Immigration Minister. She is a voice of reason, measure, logical and calm morality and humanity. But more than that, she’s one hell of an experienced lawyer – “a woman of formidable intellect whose unlikely career and personal tribulations have honed an instinct for human suffering and the rights of the neglected.” Invest some time to read this piece by Tim Elliot “Meet Gillian Triggs, the woman taking on Immigration Minister Scott Morrison” re-published in The Age on-line today.
