Don’t accept Dutton’s lies. Please comment and share. Pages like ours are on the government’s watch list. So make your voices heard! This story could be the catalyst for change, because we have the facts from PNG authorities at hand. We don’t have to wait for the mud to stick, while the truth is being uncovered during a long drawn out inquiry. This represents all of the lies of the past; the children overboard, the preventable deaths, the false allegations of Save the Children staff, the constant blame aimed at advocates and dehumanisation of innocent people seeking help.
Catherine Forster I agree with Nick McKim on this one it is reprehensible for Peter Dutton to lie to try and conflate refugees with paedophiles to make people hate them more and justify any mistreatment that they suffer. Once caught in the lie he screams about the media and demands an apology. Is this who is really being touted to replace Malcolm Turnbull? Malcolm may be a disappointment but he is better than this dispicable person.
