Greens leader Christine Milne is gone in the head if she thinks her idea is a winner:
The best way to stop people risking their lives is to give them hope of a safer pathway to a better life. That means massively increasing the number of refugees we resettle and the funding we give the UN High Commission for Refugees in Indonesia and Malaysia, working to combat corruption in Indonesian ports, and prioritising safety of life at sea.
We’ll go from measuring illegal arrives in the hundreds to hundreds of thousands.
The Greens “solution” would be a Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo India November Golf disaster.
It’s time the Gillard government did something like my 7 step solution to stop the boats.
