Why the government’s ‘Deaths at Sea’ argument about refugees is really dodgy

Thank you Tom

Tom Ballard goes on an epic rant about why the government’s ‘Deaths at Sea’ argument about refugees is really dodgy.

Diane Hunt Great summary of a shitty system Tom!!!! 👍🏻 Well done .. how about running for Parliament, it would be nice to have at least one person in there with a brain and some common sense!!!

Anita Cooling Wow, Thank you Tom. I have been an ardent defender of “shut the camps” and “bring them here” but I have struggled with this argument. I knew it was DAF but I couldn’t quite put my finger on it. Thanks. Great!

Clare Paceso There’s another option: intercept the boats and TOW THEM TO AUSTRALIA! 🙂

Turning them back actually benefits the people smugglers by giving them a faster turnaround time. They can take the refugees’ money and tell them they’ll try to get through, but surely nobody thinks they’ll be refunding the money if they don’t make it??!!

Lrae Tawse Brilliantly said, Tom. Am not a great fan of the F word and think you could achieve the same without it but your arguments and presentation is truly brilliant! Thank you for using your skills to try to bring sense to this situation.

Larry Forbes Well said. But the sad part is, I’m absolutely sure that our illegitimate Federal “government” knows all this, and probably even agrees. They’re just enjoying the pointless suffering.
