Luke – I and many fellow Australians felt a deep sense of despair and shame after watching 4 Corners last night .
As someone who has worked hard to promote this country around the world as CEO of Tourism Australia, I feel we have lost our way with the cruel inhumane treatment and persecution of these beautiful young people interviewed on the show. They could offer our country so much .
I will be returning my Order of Australia medal I received in 2003 for services to tourism and indigenous tourism because of this.
I am deeply ashamed to call myself Australian today. I hope you feel the same.

PS: The Prime Minister's comment that it is Naurus responsibility is pathetic in the extreme.
