I CAME I SAW AND DECIDED....LETS DO THE TIME WARP AGAIN!
HAS MAJOR MEMORY LOSS OVER ASYLUM SEEKERS
Alexander Downer seems to have selective memory loss about the length of time assylum seekers spent in detention under the Howard government.
Here's what he said yesterday:
Mr Downer declared yesterday that he was "uncomfortable" at the prospect of indefinite detention on Nauru.
"Why would they want to keep them there for years on end?" he asked. "We processed offshore but there was no deliberate attempt to slow the process down.
"I can't see why it would take years on end.
Why don't politicians of all colours just tell us the bleeding obvious, this agreement just reached between the major parties is the same as the Howard plan with a small twist Manus island.
So lets be honest, that's what it is, so get used to it people!
