In an historic speech in Canberra, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd today apologised to the 500,000 'Forgotten Australians' and former child migrants for the abuse, neglect and suffering they experienced in institutions, orphanages and foster care between the 1920s and 1970s. You can read the full text of Mr Rudd's speech here and that of the Opposition Leader, Malcolm Turnbull, here. What did you think of the apology? Do you support calls for compensation?...
