The Prime Minister says the Government will not be held “over a moral barrel” amid reports asylum seekers in detention are attempting suicide to ensure their children are settled in Australia.

    Yes, an ex- Jesuit student and the consequences being played out. He left a pregnant girlfriend and walked out of his wedding. Still, in hindsight a blessing for the girl.

    Abbott is unfit to be PM of this country. Happy to endorse piracy, in the pursuit of “protecting our borders”. Abetz managed to say in the senate that there were some minor incidences of self harm. What on earth is a minor incidence of self harm. There are some serious mental health issues here that need addressing. Treat them like humans.
