"Asylum seeker policy

"The treatment of our nearest neighbour in particular, Indonesia, has been appalling and insulting to a nation attempting to deal with its own terrorism and refugee transit issues. I can understand Tony Abbott not comprehending the implications, but for our foreign minister to inflame the situation with Indonesia is worrying." Asylum-seeker policy a dark spot in Australia’s history by former Independent MP Tony Windsor 27 June 2015
