  1. I am sorry we won’t be that big brother that grows up to do the right thing, we are still going to just be the drunk douche at the party.

  2. You wouldn’t invite Australia to a family gathering, our government has some of the most backwards policies in the region. If you want progressive leads on climate change look to New Zealand.

  3. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.sbs.com.au/news/asia-pacific-nations-urge-big-brother-australia-to-take-lead-on-climate-change) reduced by 88%. (I’m a bot)

    > Pacific nations see Australia as a "Big brother" that must take more leadership on climate change to protect neighbours on the front lines of its impacts.

    > "We feel that Australia has a strong voice globally – many of us see Australia as a big brother so we would like to see Australia perhaps stepping up and taking more of a leadership role.”

    > Former Tuvalu Prime Minister Enele Sopoaga has also condemned Australia for trying to buy the silence of Pacific Island leaders on climate change.

  4. The Australian Govt would rather rape their pacific neighbours natural resources and sell it to the Japanese.

  5. Hahahahahahashsbababananabhaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahababababababababahahahaahahahahahahahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaahahahahahahahahahahahaha

  6. So, just looking for excuses for inaction then

  7. Big brother? More like post menopausal Aunty.

  8. but big brother australia is a total failure

  9. Big as in the fat brother who rocks up to family lunch, eats all the food, then buggers off once he’s started a fight.

  10. “Lead”. There’s the problem. Have you seen our leaders? They are utterly despicable and quite useless.

  11. I remember a thread on r/PoliticalDiscussion where a question was asked what would happen if an island nation were to go underwater due to rising seas. Where would those people go, and how would it be treated immigration-wise? A top comment said that Australia would take them, but if they forced themselves onto Australia, they could be forcefully rejected. It made me very sad to see.
