Have the boats stopped coming?

Crikey readers have their say on Operation Sovereign Borders and constitutional law.

Clarification

Crikey writes: Re. “Hockey sues Fairfax” (yesterday). In Media Briefs yesterday, Crikey stated that Joe Hockey claimed the Fairfax article over which he is suing had known inaccuracies when it was published. He did not say that — he merely argued it made inaccurate implications when published.

    “minutia [in getting the] job done”, eh, Tamas? So the fate of those seeking asylum from Australia, after being interfered with by Australia, doesn’t achieve consciousness?

    Poor fellow.

    Have the boats stopped? Who’d actually know? We all know this government lies and refuses to make real data available and the Murdoch press whom they report to isn’t about to reveal any real information on a pet subject like this. So maybe the boats haven’t stopped!

    To paraphrase Hamlet “Who knows what this rat is doing behind it’s arras”?

    “The great majority of Australians simply wanted the boats to stop and for our borders to be controlled by the government of the day”. No Tamas. Wrong. This is a manufactured and cruel “solution” to a non-existent problem, inexplicably run as a military operation, secretive and brutal. We are operating concentration camps. All Australians should be ashamed of this. Morrison and Houston represent the worst of our society as they posture and bully those who can least protect themselves. Shame.
