ALPBC reporting that the Indonesians are "very unhappy" with the new Australian government policy on asylum seekers.

My first reaction is probably best not put into print.

Love it

Even if the Indos move 25% to doing a bit more it is a win
from doing nothing ATM.

I think it will be a long hard road to stop them but I think in
the long run they will slow them down at a minimum, especially
once word gets through that they will never get perm residency
and the number of appeals, if any decrease so non of this endless
lefty BS that has been going on.

One wonders how much outrage the Indons will feel if their "aid" gets threatened as a quid pro quo?

Yes, agree. I think Abbott might try tying one with the other
as opposed to just bending over like Kevin did and taking one
for the country, handing over C-130's etc.

Re the "extra" C-130's, that must have been planned in advance
as it is US hardware so can't be given away at our choice,
we need US approval to do it.

That just means they want more cash.
It's like haggling over the price of wooden carvings in Ubud...eventually the Aussies and the Indons will come to a mutually agreed size for the Big Bag O'Cash (sorry, aid programmes ) and there will be smiles all round.

The difference this time is that Abbott will make them do something for it.

Which they won't like but is needed.

I love how the Indonesains are saying the new Australian Government policies towards AS, may affect their sovereignty, what about Australia's sovereignty, and the invasion we have been having for the last 6 years?

Yes, I did laugh at that.

But as we have seen over the last few months, they are quite
OK with Australian warships being in their waters if it is to SAR
for AS !!!

I'd hate to be Captain of a warship close to them.

If they looked after their own sovereignty instead of having a welcome mat border control policy for every person who arrives from the ME by air carrying a lifejacket, boat ticket and guide to Australia, then we wouldn't have so much of a problem with people smugglers.

If Indonesia cares about its sovereignty then it's high time they started behaving as if they did.

I think once the illegals realise there is no point in risking it they will stop, so the Indons won't have anything to be upset about, successfully turn back a couple of boats is probably all it needs.

As far as the female ADC is concerned I think she is just 'standing', neither to attention or at ease, just in a ladylike manner! Hands clasped behind her back or in front would be fine, legs apart? Not so ladylike!

As I have said before, I hope Tony instructs the Navy NOT to SAR for country shopper boats outside of Australian waters. Let the Indo Navy go a rescue them.

(A lot of the time, the boat is still on the beach in Jakarta anyway)

re Indo SAR

I would love to do a test of a sailing boat (a proper one, not a AS boat)
and have it "get into trouble" just inside Indo 12 mile limit and see what
happened.

I wonder if they would come to the rescue or whether they would palm
it off to see if Australia could handle it.

It would be a good test.

Great news.

Now remove the Carbon Tax, appeals for all Asylum Seekers, especially Gov't funded ones and a few other lefty icons and everybody will be happy


I am sure Gillard and Rudd built a few other "empires to the left"
when in office, I just can't remember them.

I think you will find that's WHY the people of Australia turfed the previous mob out and voted in a centre-right government. The Libs said they would scrap it, the people voted for it, and here we are.

The previous mob said they wouldn't do it and then turned 180 degrees and promptly did it.

Julia Gillard, Aug 2010
"There will be no carbon tax under the government I lead."
Democracy in action by the looks of it

p.s. What's is got to do with someone in Mexico anyway ?
