Letting the Fox Play in the Henhouse

From today's Courier Mail:-
Former foreign affairs minister Gareth Evans has narrowly missed out on the powerful post to head the United Nations' refugee agency. UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan yesterday appointed former Portuguese prime minister Antonio Guterres as the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.

In light of Australia's track record in the treatment of refugees, I consider that a good thing.
