    I could be completely wrong and it's nothing at all.
    You mean this?

    Fair enough too. If the Abbott Government doesn't won't act in their client's best interests why should financial advisers have to?

    The word "English" should always have a capital "e".

    I'm glad this person was turned back, a second time.

    GEORGE ROBERTS: After Arash Sedigh was refused entry to Australia through the skilled migration program, they came to Indonesia to apply for resettlement as refugees, but gave up waiting and turned to people smugglers. ARASH SEDIGH: We decided to go there in illegal way, to make them accept us… When Customs come inside our wooden boat, I just ask them, “Please, please help us. Would you please take us in a safe place?” They just shouted on me, “Shut up, shut up, sit down!”
    GEORGE ROBERTS: Arash Sedigh became angry after demanding a doctor to treat sick passengers and a pregnant woman.
    ARASH SEDIGH: ... I couldn’t tolerate. I told them, “I will kill you if you don’t take us to that ship. I have nothing to lose. I will kill you. Believe me....”
    GEORGE ROBERTS: As their boat foundered, the asylum seekers were taken onboard the Australian Customs ship the Triton…
    ARASH SEDIGH: They pushed us, they punched us, when we were just asking for our rights. They just told us, “Shut down, shut down - sit down, shut up. Sit down, shut up.” And ...
    GEORGE ROBERTS: Is that because asylum seekers were protesting or being violent?
    ARASH SEDIGH: Yeah, sometimes protesting, sometimes asking for some rights…

    GEORGE ROBERTS: Australian Customs had deployed a new weapon in the campaign: a fleet of high-tech orange lifeboats…

    ARASH SEDIGH: After that, they took me from the water, they pushed me into the orange boat…
    GEORGE ROBERTS: On the morning of 5th February, the Triton towed the orange lifeboat towards Indonesia… As they got closer to Indonesia, the Australians cut them loose… Arash Sedigh provided a running commentary on the journey [on the video].
    ARASH SEDIGH (on asylum seeker boat): They put us in this f**king orange boat and sent us back to Indonesia. And the Navy was escorting that ship until today. ... F**k Australia. ... I said to them, “You are criminals”. If later on you said why they do that to America on September 11, you should know the cause of it is your very deeds. Remember 9-11 for United States. All the world should know why. Australian Government, Tony Abbott, Scott Morrison, Immigration - all of them are the smugglers.

    Well yes, it would seem he is not a genuine refugee. I don't think anyone on this thread suggests non genuine asylum seekers should be accepted. What has this got to do with holding the govt to their promises though?

    It's an example of them sticking to their promise of stopping the boats.

    No it's not. It's an example of a non genuine asylum seeker- something proven to be a vast minority in boat arrivals. It's also an example of someone asking for help and safety (not only for himself) and being declined.

    Was the person who died at Manus genuine?
