DURING this year’s Tough Mudder on Phillip Island, competitors in the gruelling event were told to help each other if they fell at an obstacle or started to drown in the freezing lake.

Conversely, Australians are now mentally attuned to spurning others in strife.

Ever since John Howard abhorrently declared about boat people that ‘we don’t want those sort of people here’, our humanity has suffered.

Instead of extending a helping, welcoming hand, we are determined – at all costs – to push them away from our shores. To sink or swim.

Federal Parliament is drowning in crocodile tears, but no-one except the Greens seems to have policy that displays a shred of compassion for the desperate refugees fleeing tyranny and oppression.

Why not allow them safe passage to Australia?

Why not process them on our shores? Millions of refugees are processed in other countries, but Australia seems horrified by the thought of ‘those people’ coming here: we were here first; get out.

An effective and fair tax on all our obscenely rich and selfish miners would pay for proper, humane treatment of refugees – who will keep coming whatever our policies – and would show the world that Australia is not only a lucky country, but a fair and compassionate one too.
