What happened to $26,000,000 for Nauru hospital?

WE WOULDN’T WISH THIS ON A WITCH! Peter Dutton deceives Australians! He claims that $26,000,000, yes 26 million dollars has been provided for the upgrade of the Nauru Hospital. We would like to show you the recent footage, taken in late 2015, of the disease ridden, dilapidated Nauru Hospital. Patients are left on filthy beds, exposed to the debilitating heat, have no protection from mosquitoes transmitting dengue fever rife in the flood zone hospital area. Nor are they able to escape the aggressive, starving, stray dogs wandering in and out of the buildings in search of a scrap of food. Peter Dutton said “I’ve been to many hospitals in regional Australia, including in towns where people would say that those hospitals aren’t up to the standard of those in Nauru. This also begs the question – what on earth are Australian country hospitals like? It’s time to dust off our magic wands and make Peter Dutton disappear!

Chris Gardner So how do we get a question about this to Mr Dutton???

Skye Starkey

Skye Starkey He is probably right, the government has probably paid Transfield that much to do the upgrades but most of it was eaten up by Transfield’s shonky practices!

Mary Blight

Mary Blight Stuart reporters are not allowed on Nauru. If they apply for a visa it costs them $8,000. Applications so far have not been approved…

Leslie Arthur Crockford This country used to be proud, welcoming and generous. People came from all over the world to bring their unique cultures here to enrich all our lives. That all changed in my opinion with John Howard and the ‘children overboard’. Since then we have become paranoid, misogynistic, cruel and inhumane. I am no longer proud and hang my head in shame as do the majority of Australians I believe.
