Morrison doing well
Shorten demands Morrison should be sacked due to the single death in Manus. It seems the info Morrison was originally given has now changed and as a result, Morrison has changed his reporting to reflect that.
Morrison is doing well considering he has to operate with the media attacking and Traitor Snowden, the ABC and SBS seemingly conspiring to regularly damage ties with Indonesia. The ABC particularly, is fighting a campaign to damage the government’s handling of the boat people problem. They had little interest when the ALP were running the show but now their reporting is full-on. The RAN wandering into Indonesian waters is a case in point. Don’t they have GPS? and Aren’t they taught how to read a map? were stupid comments being reported all over the media. Yes, they do have GPS and can navigate, but sometimes, for humanitarian reasons, they need to cross territorial waters to save lives. In addition to this, borders aren’t painted on the ocean and the actual location can be up for arguement.
When the RAN went into Indonesian waters to save boat people who had phoned Australian SAR when they were only kilometers from Indonesian shores then you had to read The Australian to know that.
I note Getup stage a vigil for the guy and cleverly entitled it “Light up the Dark”. There was no such light shone on the thousands previously drowned under the ALP so I guess their batteries were flat then.
So, one death under the Coalition and the ALP call for the minister to be sacked. Thousands under the ALP and the silence is deafening.
