Have our leaders failed…

… you say they have. In a recent poll 97 per cent of YOURLifeChoices members voted that we need to do more to make elected politicians more accountable. And with the Opposition shunning the multi-party committee aimed at preventing further asylum-seeker tragedies, it seems we do.

The asylum-seeker debate seems set to rumble on. A solution which will prevent further asylum-seeker tragedies is no closer. The Government today revealed that the Opposition had yet to take up any places offered on a new multi-party committee, which will work with a panel of experts carrying out an inquiry aimed at preventing further tragedies.  The standoff continues even after former navy chief Chris Barrie stated that the Coalition’s plan to simply turn back boats wouldn’t work and would be dangerous.
