Now funnily enough I happen to live in the town where this has just happened.
This may be the furthest south any group has landed, to put it in perspective, if it was the east coast they would have been landing just south of Brisbane.
So I thought id take the opportunity to have a poke at an Australian Senator, the man who described dismantling the old system (which saw refugee boat arrivals at single digits) as his “moment of “greatest satisfaction”.
Good day, this may come across as a little gloating but Im just mailing to inform you I told you so.
Some years ago now you called for submissions into the detention/refugee system, I put in a submission based on 5 years of working in the detention field and seeing its failings and traps.
You were the minister responsible at the time, I initially hoped your inquiry might be a genuine one. Silly i know.
My submission was rejected on the grounds my “information was out of date” and similar tosh.
I responded and received a borderline rude dismissal.
So here comes my gloat, nearly EVERY thing you did which has hurt your government with regards to immigration could have been easily avoided if you had been less of a fool and actually taken submissions from people who had seen the previous fuck ups and successes.
Your own ideological stupidity and arrogance made a rod for your own parties back. Your “greatest satisfaction” has become just one of your governments signature failures. If you have any ounce of intellectual curiosity I could still give you a workable solution to you asylum impasse gathered from years of talking with refugees themselves. But hey, you know better don’t you mate?
I currently live in Geraldton, as you may be aware we had a boatload turn up in the harbor here today.
Now I know you’ve moved on, your obvious stuff up notwithstanding, but just think of me as the slave who stood at Caesars ear whispering, “Respice te, hominem te memento” or “Look behind you, remember you are only a man”, some of us remember your past, even if you like to forget.
Yours, with ALL due respect.
And i really mean all the respect due to him, probably slightly outweighed by a gnats pubic hair.

Reblogged this on The mind is an unexplored country. and commented:
Blog post from an old contact who now lives in Geraldton. And actually worked in detention centres for several years.
He doesn’t say much about that, but it’s hard to not share his schadenfreude…

If the Deutche Bank can donate the boat to sail to new zealand …errr Australia, then they can pay for the illegal refugees accomodation, medical expenses, dole payment, internet, smokes, dental, education and family reunion for the next 20 years.

Soon, I’ll be uploading a recorded tape from a news ltd journalist, discussing my ‘pooing’ manager. The one who pooed on my apt floor and bullied me.

Bugger, i was first to note the Deutsche Bank sign and no other blogs throw the credit this way – bastages.

I wondered what the bank logo was doing on the side…

Probably a boat donated after the boxing day tsunami some years ago.
