Richard Flanagan’s, The Unknown Terrorist

Fiction is again ahead of the game with Richard Flanagan’s brilliant thriller, The Unknown Terrorist. Mohamed Haneef should have read the book – as all Australians and visitors to this great land need to do – and he would have known what he was up against when arrested wrongly by the Federal police. The novel’s ending was more tragic (the victim wasn’t a medico) but give the Australian government more time. The UK police were appalled at the pressure our government put on the investigating police. They need another alleged terrorist quickly.

And how did we become a police state? Why, our ignominious vassalage to the US.
