Parliament at a stalemate over boats

Posted by: 6PR | 27 June, 2012 - 5:49 PM
The Malaysia solution debate went for over six hours.

Members of Federal Parliament were holed up in the chamber for hours on end trying to come to a solution on off-shore processing of asylum seekers. 6PR's Canberra correspondent Michael Pachi joined Howard Sattler throughout the afternoon with updates.

  • Well may we say God save the Prime Minister, because nothing will save the Greens.

  • They were locked in a stalemate...for hours. Unable to come to grips with the biggest human money making business since slavery, which is forcing itself on our shores daily. They were unable to comprehend that there are individuals making a fortune from this illegal activity, and that the participants are wealthy enough to be a party to it. Did they even get as far as to dwell on the fact that the organizers will stop at nothing to keep this going, or that some of the would be immigrants are the sort of people who would throw their children in the ocean to force a rescue for themselves? Yes, they were in a stalemate allright, they have been in one for years. Just stop the boats where they sail from...or is that too easy?

  • People often talk about Western Australia leaving the federation. Why doesn't Tasmania leave the federation? The Tasmanian Greens wield hugely disproportionate power over Australia in comparison to their population and contribution to the economy. If they love the United Nations so much, why doesn't Tasmania become a United Nations Trust and let the United Nations pay for their existence? It would help a lot with the communist carbon tax, mining tax redistribution. One less mendicant State to fund.

  • The Green/Labor Government is a failed expirement. Australians remember the Brisbane line, a contingency plan to sacrifice Northern Australia during the War in the Pacific. Labor governments are never strong on defence. It is obvious to everyone that this government is unable and unwilling to defend Australia's borders. One way to start would be to get rid of the Greens.
