    Haha, okay Kevin.

    I will resume broadcasting as usual.......


    I wonder what the back story is Chris. I would like to believe there is a reason, but anymore I guess there doesn't have to be.
    There are but two seasons. Winter, and preparing for winter.

    Jim, its hard to see that story in context without being privy to the tactics of Australias current ruling regime. As much as I would like to think there is a relevant backstory I'm more inclined to believe its just another example of the government treating non whites/muslims quite harshly, its been quite systematic and ties in nicely with their narrative of what they want the population to believe are important issues. As long as they can keep border protection/terrorism in focus they can obfuscate and distract from the tougher issues...

    Yeah, that sounds about right. Unfortunately.

    Then in a year, it would be interesting to see if they have actually left Australia.

    My guess would be that your government operates on the premise that once you let them in, you never get rid of them again.

    From my experince, that is not too far from the truth.

    Stig our government would either deport them or place them in indefinate detention on Manus Island- its essentially Guantanamo Bay style accomodation with less security and torture. Or since its Christmas time they could be sent to Christmas island which is another detention facility. These are privatized facilities where the bill to the taxpayer is approximately $400/detainee/day to be housed in tents.

    Its not a destiny one would aspire to.

    Or give them a house in Western Sydney, with $1000 a week plus and free medical and other perks.
