LABOR has declared victory over people-smugglers after the arrival of two lightly-loaded asylum boats in the past 24 hours.
“We have broken the back of the people-smuggling trade,” Immigration Minister Tony Burke said
Wow! Only two lighlty loaded asylum boats in the past 24 hours! Oh well, thats it then – fixed…back broken!
No, hang on, I seem to recall during the six years of the Pacific Solution, just 24 boats arrived carrying 1129 asylum-seekers and that was too many.
Long way to go Burkie but never mind it won’t be your problem next week. You can sit back and watch the problem solved by grown-ups.
