    Please. Let's not pretend this government cares about asylum seekers.

    Let's not pretend that you care about asylum seekers drowning on a journey to Australia then. You would obviously rather the boats were still coming, which in turn, would result in more deaths.

    Your policy?
    Visa, visa, visa, death, visa, death, visa, visa, visa, visa, death.

    Very compassionate.

    Where have I ever said that? I didn't like Labor's policy either.

    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.

    Another backflip:

    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!

    Two questions:
    How many would you bring over? An actual number per year.
    Are we currently helping refugees from camps around the world get to Australia?

    They are not dying on the planes. Nor are they receiving any form of taxpayers dollars. They also entered Australia with a valid visa so there would be no reason to turn them back. Once their visa is expired, they should be removed yes.

    Oh obviously. Everything I've ever posted on this forum about asylum seekers clearly indicates that I don't care if they live or die. You really love to put words in people's mouths don't you??
    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.
