    I would assume that this is the part that is being targeted?

    Division 2.1 of the Public Service Regulations Act 1999.

    An APS employee must not disclose information which the APS employee obtains or generates in connection with the APS employee’s employment if it is reasonably foreseeable that the disclosure could be prejudicial to the effective working of government, including the formulation or implementation of policies or programs.

    I'm sure you are all disappointed that this guy has been elected a senator.

    Ms Pratt’s sexuality and her relationship with Mr Hosie came under the spotlight when Mr Bullock said of his running mate: “She’s a lesbian I think, although after her partner’s sex change I can’t be sure.”

    There are bad eggs in every party. I guarantee you though- I'd far, far rather he got into the senate than anyone from the LNP.

    Just as I thought. It is not the principle, it's the side that is important for those on the left.

    Not a very impressive piece from a QC. My comments below:

    First, they come from countries that make it difficult or impossible for them to get travel documents. Second, they come from countries where it is practically impossible for them to get a visa to enter Australia. They come to Australia by boat because they can’t come by plane.
    He does not name which countries he thinks it is ‘practically impossible’ to get a visa from, nor does he provide any evidence to support such a claim. The government’s statistics found here: http://www.immi.gov.au/media/publica...us-2012-13.pdf, on page 8, shows how many people arrived by plane from each country. Maybe one of you can tell me which countries he was referring to, as evidence shows that there were sizable arrivals from all of the common countries of origin of asylum seekers.

    The durable myth that they come by boat because they are rich is not only false – it is logically absurd. Why would a rich person pay to risk their life at sea?
    Again, no evidence to back that claim. It is not logically absurd as the question he asked can be easily answered. = They are either country shopping not IAW the UN refugee convention, or they destroyed their papers because their asylum claims were baseless.

    Typically, these people travel to Malaysia or Indonesia on forged papers.
    Does he have evidence of this ‘typically’ claim? Why did they not then travel to Australia direct on the forged papers?

    They do not pass through countries that have signed the UNHCR Refugee Convention,
    Which seems to be a very intentional decision based on the number and location of countries that have signed it.
