It brings joy to the heart to witness sundry Australian Labor Party/Green Party politicians and their effete, chardonnay swilling, hangers-on, apoplectic with rage over the success that that Tong Abbot has had in 'turning back the boats'.
How dare he not reveal in detail every intercept operation. How dare he have the audacity to have crews rescued from international waters where they scuttled their boats, return them to Indonesian waters, place them in special life boats complete with cell phones, GPS and sufficient fuel to return them back to the land from whence they came and set them loose.
To all those wankers I say wake up and smell the roses. Abbott is effectively at war with the people smugglers and Abbot will win. These are not refugees in the true sense. They are, in the main, economic refugees prepared to jump the queue at any cost, attracted to Australia where, under a Labor Government they were welcomed with open arms and attracted a range of benefit payments that were the envy of many hardworking ordinary Australians.
In war you don't telegraph your intentions to the enemy. In war you do the unexpected. Abbott is doing just that. All power to his elbow. People smugglers need to realise the dynamic has changed.
Australia is not the soft touch it was under Labor and the Greens. Well done Tony Abbott.
