Father, if you put your personal feelings aside, I'm sure you know that no one that has replied to this thread find people dying at sea funny. In fact, most of the members replying here are usually very vocal about their opinions about human rights, and the regard for life, etc.
These events are an absolute tragedy, and I'm sure that is something we can all agree on.
They are not dying because of our processing policy. They are dying because the people bringing them are lying to them and are taking no care over their safety. And they are dying because they are so desperate they see little choice but to trust unscrupulous people smugglers.
Its beyond tragic.
It doesn't matter what the policy is the same will happen anyway.
It's tragic but what else do these people have, waiting 10 years to get out is not really an option. And flying here isn't either because they won't even get a holiday visa to enter the country.
The blame game is on political parties is useless.
Father, you come in with a tragedy and then make it a 'my party is bigger than yours' issue, surely that's completely insensitive to the issue of people drowning?
The current policy is giving these people a product to sell. And the numbers speak for themselves. The 'product' is now being purchased by more and more people. This is dangerous! And will result in more deaths unless this 'product' is removed from the smugglers.
