Idiots, just got out of one mess, thanks to the opposition party. Vindictiveness makes them steer the course into another mess. Bankers (as most Liberal leaders in Aust) really should should not be making rules that effect actual flesh and bone people. Shure take my house because that's the power they have. But empathy or understanding of another humans plight, can't bank that. Wraiths.

Mentally ill "refugees" will now have the right to be assessed in Australia, with access to lawyers. Healthy ones will not.

Money should go to aborigines healthcare first.

Why refugees would want to leave the safety and peace of Nauru is a mistery. The Nauruan people have been there for about 2000 years and seem to be content and happy.

Aussies have to wait in line for years for medical treatment because of mass immigration clogging up hospitals with economic reffos.

Now the government wants to roll out the red carpet for more reffos .

Canberra Parliament house going need something better than the new man proof fence they just erected to stop protesters.

Cause very soon theres going to be big trouble in Australia as Aussies are getting angry of being treated like 2nd class citizens in their own country !!!

If they sent a medical ship to the Christmas Island immigration detention camp to treat the ones in the camp instead of flying them.

The person would receive medical aid faster and any serious medical conditions could be diagnosed and a decision as to whether to treat on board or fly to an Australia hospital could then be made.
