Not amused. This is a deplorable on Peter Dutton’s part

The purpose of a good cartoon isn't to amuse but to outrage. Thanks, Fiona!

Thank you Fiona. Your cartoon highlights the fact that Peter Dutton suffers from CDS - Compassion Deficit Syndrome! Peter Dutton, his colleagues in the LNP Coalition and the right of the ALP urgently need to show some compassion to asylum seekers whose lives have been torn apart by wars - in many cases wars these leaders have gone along with. Is it any wonder that internationally, Australians are viewed as being callous and lacking compassion towards those who have suffered much?
