For the second time Scott Morrison’s Border Sovereignty Campaign has been breached: firstly, a boat reached Darwin; now, this week a boat has landed on an uninhabited beach of Christmas Island. Their diet is based on crabs, coconuts and water.
Tomorrow, the Minister for Immigration is uttering his weekly statement, accompanied by the General. One wonders if we should contact the armed forces, and enquire sympathetically if it has just been too difficult. Would he like a phone call notifying the armed forces of illegal entry. While he is at it, perhaps Minister Morrison would like to rewrite Australian coastal geology and tell us the nature of our sovereign border, how porous?
It will be interesting watching Morrison’s puffed up peacock chest; how assertive can he continue to be about the sovereignty of the border he maintains.
