    I guess at the end of the day, you have to put yourself in their shoes. Refugee camps are over run with diseases, they have huge amounts of sexual assaults. And at the end of the day only 50% of people will ever get out of it. And most are in there for 5 years or more. Would you take that chance? Or would you do whatever it takes to get yourself and your family out of harms way?

    Over one million people have been in a Pakistani refugee camp for 25 years, others have been in camps for over 50 years. That is no life VP. Surely you can see that?

    Good start then, but you are probably right - Libs will probably get rid of it!
