Not content with stabbing our Kev in the back and with lying to the electorate about a carbon tax, Juliar is now refusing to act on a resolution passed by both Houses condemning her ‘Malaysian solution’ 1.
This is a blatant contempt of Parliament which, to quote the deputy opposition leader (Julie Bishop), “might be expected from a third-world dictatorship, but not from our Australian democracy”.
Technically I believe she can get away with it because the powers she requires are already available under a previous Migration Act, but it will do nothing to endear her to the voting public, with whom her stock is already nearly at rock bottom.
1 – Don’t worry about it. It’s an immigration thing, utterly nutty.
