boat people!

Finally saw a Liberal party election ad last night. It made me angry because it was so factually inaccurate. Illegal immigration is not at crisis point, unless you regard Australia’s failure to welcome the desperate as a crisis.
Retweeted comments by Bob Hawke about how “We’re all bloody boat people” reminded me of this little image.I remember seeing it pinned to someone’s office door years ago, stealing it, photocopying it and returning it. I found a digital copy today, created in 2004. It shits me that this is still a freaking issue. Haven’t we learnt compassion yet?
