Our very own Colonel Blimp

Crikey readers have their say about Immigration Scott Morrison and whether you should send your child to private school.

Scott Morrison’s so-called compassion

Ellen O’Gallagher writes: Re. “Morrison’s use of asylum seeker death unravels as facts come back to bite” (yesterday). It is worth reading Scott Morrison’s maiden speech. Here is a short excerpt which follows his personal statement of belief in the Christian faith  “From my faith I derive the values of loving-kindness, justice and righteousness, to act with compassion and kindness, acknowledging our common humanity and to consider the welfare of others; to fight for a fair go for everyone to fulfil their human potential and to remove whatever unjust obstacles stand in their way… and to do what is right, to respect the rule of law, the sanctity of human life and the moral integrity of marriage and the family…”  He then goes on to quote Desmond Tutu.  All we can conclude after reading that is that he must not consider the refugees to be human.
