I hope I have repaid Australia for the humanity it showed me, as it has shown to so many others over the years.
Stand up for what you think is right. That might be very different from what I am saying today, but you are allowed to differ from me just as I am allowed to differ from you. That is part of our strength as a country that we can differ from each other.
