    Please call Peter Dutton’s office at Parliament House:
    (02) 6277 7860
    to register strong (but polite) feedback on the humanitarian crisis on Manus.

    If Dutton’s dept is inundated answering calls something may be done to relieve the situation for the suffering refugees. But only once it becomes a nuisance to Dutton’s staff.

    Not great poetry, and is it true that if they accept the alternative accommodation they’ll be returned?

      ‘Retuned’, not returned.
