The Age today had a front page story about the recent towing the boats back incidence(s) to Indonesian waters. It turns out that one of the boats was intercepted near Darwin (that's legally in Australia) and towed back over six days. There were reports of ill treatment of some of the refugees but this was dusted off by Australia's official spokesman who then declined to give any details.
So the Prime Miniature and the disgusting Morrison lied about NOT turning the boats back to the Indonesians who are very pissed off about this and rate actively discussing this in their Parliament (yes we used to have one too but it got towed to Indonesia).
It seems that the PM has a different story for every audience and our compliant media doesn't report it.
We have direct action to combat global warming which is actually crap. The odious Minister for Telling Lies About the Environment, Greg Hunt, and his truth-challenged boss have one story for metal and coal workers, another for the Parliament but should be outed on the basis of their legislative program which has put a wrecking ball through all climate initiatives.
Remember the days when he sang from Opposition "not until China does". well dimwit the Chinese are way ahead of us with three carbon trading markets in full operation NOW.
We remain the ONLY country in the world to legislate AGAINST carbon abatement and to reward the big polluters.
