As time runs out for Bali Nine duo Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran, Triple M’s The Hot Breakfast this morning discussed the PM Tony Abbott’s efforts, called for an inquiry into the AFP and talked about the Boycott Bali campaign.
Eddie Calls For Full Inquiry:
“They should do a full inquiry into the Australian Federal Police and how the hell this happened in the first place,” Eddie McGuire said on Triple M’s The Hot Breakfast.
“There’s others coming out now saying this was a complete balls-up from start to finish.”
Darce On The Boycott Bali Campaign:
“I would love to see the Prime Minister do a deal and sort this out directly,” Luke Darcy said On Triple M’s The Hot Breakfast.
“I don’t think we need to destroy the Balinese economy or the Balinese people over this, it’s not their fight, it’s their President’s fight and I think we can sort it all out without having to avoid the whole country.”
“I think as a country though you need to register some kind of ‘it’s not business as usual’ though,” Mick Molloy said on Triple M’s Hot Breakfast.
“Whether that’s a boycott or not the Indonesian government need to know that this is not OK.
“So how do you make that point?
“I don’t know the answer by the way but I’d like to think that there’s a way of indicating our displeasure to the Indonesian government that says we’re not copping it, it’s not acceptable, there is not normal transmission of programming, you need to really sort this out.
“Something needs to happen, it’s not on, this is not right.”

Latest: Meeting To Outline Bali Nine Duo Execution
Australian embassy officials will attend a Jakarta meeting where Indonesia will convey the formalities in its plan to execute Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran.
Indonesia's Foreign Ministry has invited all embassies with citizens to be executed to the Monday meeting, which could mean the executions will take place this week.
The meeting won't provide the date but it will discuss the provision of 72 hours notice, access to prisoners for family, and the conduct of foreign media coverage, a ministry spokesman says.
When Indonesia executed one Indonesian and five foreign nationals last month, the meeting with embassies, the announcement of the 72-hours notice and the executions all happened within the week.
Lawyers for Chan and Sukumaran will seek a meeting with Attorney-General HM Prasetyo on Monday, to ask for the executions to be delayed pending action in the administrative court.
They've lodged a challenge of the presidential decrees denying the men clemency without examining their cases or giving reasons.
The lawyers have also made a complaint with the Indonesian Judicial Commission, based on public comments by Chan and Sukumaran's former lawyer Muhammad Rifan.
Mr Rifan last week alleged there had been "interference" in the case that saw the Australians sentenced to death when they should have been jailed for life.
Their complaint claims the judges in the original trial offered a more lenient sentence in exchange for cash.
Mr Prasetyo says this round of executions takes more planning, because prisoners have to be transferred from various jails to the execution location, Nusakambangan island, off Central Java.
Authorities have permission to move Chan and Sukumaran from Bali's Kerobokan jail, and would like to do it "as soon as possible".
Kerobokan prison governor Sudjonggo told reporters he is ready for the transfer "any time, any day".
He said Chan and Sukumaran - who are considered leaders in the prison for their tireless work to help the rehabilitation and welfare of others - seemed somewhat resigned to the executions.
"They have surrendered even though there's still legal efforts going on," he said on Sunday.
"When clemency is rejected, there's no other option, what else can we do?
"Let's just pray. Who knows, there can be miracles."
Indonesian President Joko Widodo insists the Bali Nine duo and other drug offenders sentenced to death should be executed to shock the nation out of a "drugs emergency".
Prime Minister Tony Abbott says Australia will continue with "11th-hour" efforts to save their lives.
"What we are asking of Indonesia is what Indonesia asks of other countries when its citizens are on death row," Mr Abbott said on Sunday.
"If it's right for Indonesia to ask and expect some kind of clemency, it's surely right for us to ask and expect some kind of clemency."
