Em Boheme Honestly, what’s wrong with here? It’s Australia’s loss, a lost opportunity to show love and be a leader internationally in regard to just being good people and treating others respectfully.

Natasha Nasrulla Be big hearted Malcolm Turnbull. They are an exception. Give them the opportunity to settle in Australia. We can handle it. Why don’t people understand that it’s just a twist of fate that it’s not you Malcolm or me? Must be nice to sit in that palace in Point Piper and decide on people’s lives. Your policy of Stop the Boats is working. These are just the remnants of the past. LET THEM IN.
