Bowen’s Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels?
Seems the regional detention centre is still on the table. Just not in East Timor.
If it plays out well, and I think it might solely because the the government is keeping this one close with Chris Bowen offering this.
“We’ve made progress in terms of the international framework and regional processing, and we’ll have more to say about it when it’s appropriate,” Immigration Minister Chris Bowen told Sky News. (source)
Interesting news. And maybe enough to get some of the heat (pun intended) off inland detention centres.
Ironically if it does pan out and PNG becomes the site for a regional detention centre, I remind the ALP and Chris Bowen what the above image really means.
A half blind and lame government in need of help. Or at least that is what your opponents will try and paint.
Either way, assume crash positions.
