IAN MACPHEE, Immigration Minister in Fraser Govt: I plead with the Labor Party to adopt a humane policy regarding asylum.

To its credit SBS covers aspects of the refugee crisis and the ABC does a little. But it cannot compete with road accidents on commercial television! So not enough Australians know of the inhumanity of their government. That is why I wish the Labor opposition would join the Greens in promising to return to a humane policy.
