Letters Politics


Like many writers to The Age, I too am horrified that we still have many refugees in deplorable  conditions in detention.  But I gave up writing about this a long time ago and I wonder why so many people bother to still write about it.  I’m sure neither Scott Morrison nor Peter Dutton read The Age and even if a staffer reads The Age and puts clippings in their in-trays, neither of them gives a fig.  As far as they are concerned they have stopped the boats and that’s the end of it.  The fact that some refugees have died in detention, and more are likely to,  is of no concern to them.  What a tragic fiasco this all is.
