Dear Julny Gillarbbott, I’m hoping you can help me with a problem. You’ll be pleased to know that we’ve managed to stop the boats, they’re here in Hobart. The problem is that the people on board don’t seem very interested when I offer to drive them to the Detention Centre at Brighton. They’re even less interested in going to Nauru! What should I do?
Or is it ok that these boats arrive? Their owners seem to be quite wealthy and healthy, and there’s food on board, and they don’t seem to be in fear for their lives: is that the difference between these and the other boats that arrive? Both lots are legal, so it can’t be that…
Please forgive me writing to both of you at the same time, it’s just that I’m not really sure who’s actually running the country!
