    The same as Ms Gillard promising that there will be no carbon tax. All politicians do & say anything to get in.

    What annoys me most about Abbott claiming to be able to "stop the boats" is that he actually expects people to believe this is possible. He thinks the public is stupid enough to believe that he can dream up and implement policies that will make people not want to flee from persecution, poverty, torture etc to a better place. So long as there is poverty, religion, tribalism and massive inequalities of wealth distribution there will be refugees and asylum seekers. I'm afraid not even Abbott can bring a new world order of world peace, love and harmony.

    Luckily Abbott has reassured Indonesia that he'll stop the asylum seeker boats coming FROM Australia...


    -------------------------------

    "When I was up in Jakarta a few weeks ago I was able to tell President (Susilo Bambang) Yudhoyono - a very good friend of our country, an outstanding president of Indonesia - that we utterly, totally, completely respected Indonesian sovereignty,'' Mr Abbott told the WA party conference.


    "And if any boat ever set out from Australia to Indonesia to enter that country illegally, we would do our damnedest to stop it.''

    Source


    ----------------------------------

    (Surely he didn't actually say that to him??)
