Morrison said that if a facility such as a university is taking on asylum seekers on bridging visas into that residential complex then ... "I think there’s a simple courtesy that needs to be provided to other people, that they simply know that that’s taking place." What an outrage, to suggest that resident students might be told as a matter of courtesy that blocs of strangers are going to be moved into their living quarters! I mean, has the man no morals whatsoever? I'm sure the resident students affected are even now mobilising to distance themselves from his pernicious remarks. No? Oh well, maybe next week, or month. Nice one again Fiona. Cutting edge.

What a sad reflection on Australians that votes can be had by playing the racist card, such as Scott Morrison, Tony Abbot, Julie Bishop, Julia Gillard and Pauline Hanson have been doing. If these people were to read Frances Harrison's book "Still Counting the Dead, Survivors of Sri Lanka's Hidden War" and empathasise with those who tell their stories of Sri Lankan Government atrocities, they surely wouldn't be able to suggest Australia return Sri Lankan refugees to their home country, where they are very likely to be tortured. Surely politicians with any sense of humanity who viewed the two documentaries "Go Back to Where You Came From" couldn't continue to play the racist card by continuing with inhumane off-shore processing, or plan to two the boats back! Or has politics become so devoid of a sense of humanity that we have returned to the modern equivalent of the 'White Australia Policy' of yesteryear? Food for thought!
