Don't go there Sabre, as Genesis once put it you'll end up in a "land of confusion"

So I guess not a straightforward Labor V Liberal contest of wills?  :laugh:

Greens V Communists? Too much camouflage, if you're going to fight clash!

Sabre, most of us seem to have a fairly logical debating platform to stand on but I am waiting for a certain individual to come flying back into the discussion and in and in a low gravelly tone announce "I'm Batman"  :lol

What do you think should happen?

'65

I dont have a solution '65 because I dont' think there is one single solution TBH. 

As I said IMO it doesn't matter what the policy or which party's policy it is the boats will still try and get here.

With the only difference if there is an off-shore processing situation is that we wont hear about it but the boats will still and get here.

"Oh yes I am a dreamer, I still see us flying high!"

from the song "Don't Walk Away" by Pat Benatar 1988 (Wide Awake In Dreamland)

I didn't ask for a solution only your thoughts on what should happen.

e.g.

On-shore or off-shore processing for people arriving by boats?

If off-shore then to which country? Narau? Malaysia?

If on-shore should we lock them up in refugee detention camps.

and most importantly...

Should we be trying to stop people dying trying to get to Australia by boat?
(Not how but just "should" we be trying...)

A question.

Why does it take so long to process asylum seekers?
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways my ways,” says the Lord.
 
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are my ways higher than your ways,
And my thoughts than your thoughts."

Yahweh? or the great Clawski?

Because a large proportion destroy their identification. It then takes time to establish and legally proove who they are, where they are from, whether they have a criminal record and a series of other tests to determine refugee qualification.

so if we spent more money on resources to process them quicker, we wouldn't have to house them for as long?

why do the smugglers make them do that anyway?
