I believe we should be bringing them over the safest way possible.
If this government cared about asylum seekers, they would be helping them get here, not moving them offshore, refusing their entry and forcing them to live in subhuman conditions.
Since it appears that only anti-Abbott comments are permitted on this thread, I will join in.
The coalition promised to repeal section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act. Now, it appears that George Brandis is slowing easing his way out of doing it. He is now only planning on slightly changing the wording of section 18C, which will result in no real change at all. This government is weak in their convictions!
Thousands upon thousands of people overstay their visas each year I don't see you turning back the planes

If you think turning back the boats from Australian (or Indonesian) waters is an exercise in saving lives, you're deluded. A better solution would be to help them. Our govt has made much of the unseaworthy vessels often employed by people smugglers- keeping them on these boats is hardly an act of keeping them alive. Turning back boats has it's own set of dangers for all involved that you should read up on before gloating about how wonderful it is.
Do we really want this thread closed? Or would you like to discuss/debate the topics?
How about EVERYONE drops the name calling, stop demanding to know why members post on the forum (we have many members that post in only one or a few area's of the forum) and get back to discussing the political topics raised in this thread.
