Just Sick

10 March 2015

Tony Abbott claims that Australians are “sick of being lectured to” by the United Nations after they published a damning report criticising the Australian Government of breaching their obligations with regard to asylum seekers.

No, Tony, we’re sick of being on the wrong side of international law.  And morally bankrupt.  And this is a Government currently trying to get a seat on the UN’s Human Rights Council.

We also hear today that thousands of letters sent by decent Australians to asylum seekers held in Naura (letters complete with self-addressed envelopes so that these prisoners can reply) have been returned to sender months after they were sent and after the Dept. of Immigration issued assurances that they had been delivered. 

How low can this lot go?  (Rhetorical question – I’d prefer not to know the answer).
