Reported in today's SMH that 4 of the 111 people brought here under the Medevac arrangements required hospital medical treatment. Great achievement by Kerryn Phelps! Pity about the unnecessary loss of taxpayers funds that might have gone to the genuinely sick and disabled.

John, it was a great achievement by Kerryn Phelps in the short time she was in Parliament, supported by many like-minded MPs. If you are genuinely concerned about “unnecessary loss to taxpayers funds” from Medevac, you might also criticise the spending of multi-millions of taxpayers’ dollars keeping the Nauru and Manus Island camps open that made Medevac necessary in the first place. Just a thought.

You got it in one, Brett. Yes I do object to the massive wasteful cost of maintaining the detention centres on Manus and Nauru and the insanity of spending $185m (I think it was) to put the medical facility on Christmas Island.
