And KRudd will do what about the boats?

Andrew Bolt on the second-biggest boat arrival for the year:

Another day, another boat. This one boat is costing us a whopping $13,790,000, conservatively. 197 on board.

I know some Labor Ministers know perfectly well the boats can and should be turned back:

A DETAILED plan to deal with people-smuggling has been developed by the opposition based on advice from senior members of the armed forces.

“The Coalition has delved into this very deeply with some very experienced people in our defence forces,” opposition immigration spokesman Scott Morrison told The Australian.

UPDATE

Another boat has sunk, north of Christmas Island. Reader J reports some 100 people are believed to be involved and there are bodies in the water. The Home Affairs Minister, Jason Clare, will give a press conference soon.

UPDATE

Clare says 88 rescued, one baby dead, eight missing. Man in Melbourne alerted them to vessel sinking, and gave them coordinates – 108 nautical miles north of Christmas Island.

Highly doubtful if he was one of the people smugglers as they have no concern about the fate of their cargo – but hopefully he will be investigated by the AFP as being an enabler of this latest debacle. Many ‘refugees’ who have conned the immigration department send cash back to their countries to smuggle friends and relatives over,
