Last week, I suggested that Scott Morrison’s plan to quarantine people on Christmas Island made sense. The internet backlash was severe.
Today, a court ruled in favour of the Tamil family from Biloela. Sadly, they’ll have to stay under guard on Christmas Island until the matter is settled.
Labor’s Anthony Albanese has openly supported the plight of the Tamil family from Biloela. But doing so rings a trifle hollow.
Ahead of today’s decision regarding the future of the Tamil family, those responsible are noticeably absent from the spotlight.
The story of the Biloela family facing deportation from their own country has gripped the nation, however, the act itself reveals the depths of official apathy.
