Cannot possibly imagine how this can be done but it’s a necessary move. Access to our court system for those rejected as legitimate refugees is one thing but litigation involving damages paid for Australia’s “unconscionable conduct" toward refugees is another.

Julia Gillard paid illegal litigants lump sums rather than allow the courts to set a compensation precedent.

It was reported one man who had sewn his lips was paid $800,000 in an otherwise undisclosed settlement.

Over $700 million has so far been paid to litigants in return for their silence including legal aid and Labor law firm costs. 

Julia Gillard thereby avoided international embarrassment while busily buying votes for a Security Council seat.

Unfortunately other instances were kept from us.

Here’s an Idea! STOP them becoming Illegal Immigrants in the 1st place
This is a must-listen interview with Alexander Downer from Ben Fordham’s program on 2GB.
It really is so simple to solve the border protection problem. It takes one phone call.
Downer should know. He had the wit and will to do it.

Sew your lips and eye-lids, by the look of it. Could I get a few bob for accidentally cutting my toe nails too short. They hurt too, you know.

You sew lips together you can undo them as well. This is a form of Balckmail and we are falling for it. Weak aren’t we and that is how these illegals see usas, bloody weak.

Being given the opportunity to use our own legal system against us is utter rubbish. ASIO should have the final word on security NOT the courts.

JOHN LEHMANN EDITOR AT LARGE THE DAILY TELEGRAPH SEPTEMBER 02, 2013 12:00AM.
AUSTRALIAN taxpayers are already pouring around $500,000 per asylum seeker into Manus Island under Kevin Rudd’s rushed “PNG Solution” – but the money pot is igniting bitter clashes in the jungle between angry locals trying to cash in.

These people are illegal immigrants trying to get the sympathy vote. Paying hundreds and thousands of dollars in US currency, flying sometimes first class to Malaysia and Indonesia, staying in flash hotels, then bouncing out to out lying villages hopping on dodgey vessels, as the fisherman involved do not wish to lose their good boats. They destroy their documents, any proof of identification get placed into detention and then get access to the best legal assistance and to the high court! Trying getting that as an Australian citizen!! Then you get fools like Hanson-Young and her Green mates, Peter Rintoul… Read more »

I am sick and tired of this political correctness rubbish. These people come here from the back door, are given everything while Australian have to work hard all their lives. I myself came to this country many years ago and never expected any privilege or handouts. Another thing that really makes me mad is that when you look at television programs or news etc. there is very often someone wearing the head scarf or obviously muslim. The percentage of muslims is not that high in Australia as yet so why do we have to put them everywhere and anywhere just… Read more »

$800,000 for what????? Mental anguish. $100m saved by denying illegals legal aid, whilst our own go without, the more you hear, the more you cannot believe this has been going on for years. Illegal refugees are a huge business in their own right, take away the product and there will be thousands of unemployed co-called doogooers, legal staff, medical specialists, speech therapist psychologists looking for work, all paid for by us the taxpayer, can’t come quick enough.

Anybody see the piece of telly about the lesbian and homosexual attending attending a meeting chaired by Adam Bandt the gay green senator, pleading the case of gay illegals, supposedly fleeing their country because of persecution, now complaining about being sent to Papua NG. It seems homosexualiy is a crime there with a sentence of up to 7 years goal. News to me that being gay would would support your claim for asylum.

A great LNP policy and about time. Very few Australians pro rata get their legal fees paid for whether that be in a criminal matter or a civil dispute by the government yet these rag heads who come here illegally, who have never paid one cent of tax and most of them most likely never will, but under Labor they get QCs served up on a silver tray to them in spades amongst a wheel barrow of other benefits so many Australians in need could only dream about. Its immoral!!

the entire matter of taxpayer funded legal aid needs to be re-examined and more stringent rules and monitoring must be put into effect.

…she who was proven to have lied when she accused a traffic policeman of ripping her niqab off), would suggest that there are some Anglo women among the niqab wearers.
Why do women who have grown up in Australia feel the need to cover their hair? They know the sight of their hair isn’t going to turn any Australian male into a slavering sex maniac. It’s her Muslim husband’s mates who she’s sending the message out to – “I’m not a Western whore. I’m a pure Muslim woman”.

I spend a bit of time in Sydney’s inner west. My main problem with the hijab (head scarf) and niqab (varying stages of full face cover), both commonly misnamed ‘burqa’ here in Australia, which is a brass and leather face mask for females on the Arabian peninsula that is not a hell of a lot different to the Lone Ranger’s ‘disguise) is the number of obviously Anglo young women I see wearing the hijab in the shopping centres there. (I can’t comment on whether any of the relatively large number of ladies I see hiding behind their niqabs are Anglo,… Read more »

Opposition Leader Tony Abbott has confessed to finding the burqa “confronting” while defending Liberal candidate Ray King for describing the Islamic attire as a “sign of oppression”.
Asked whether he supported the statements by Mr King, who drew a link between the burqa and criminality at a fund-raiser, Mr Abbott admitted he found it “a very confronting attire”.
“Frankly, it’s not the sort of attire that I would like to see widespread in our streets,” Mr Abbott told reporters on Saturday, while campaigning in Queensland.

I do believe that Tony Abbott and the majority of the current soon to be government all support the statement made by John Howard>
“We will decide whom and under what circumstances people come to this country”
I totally agree, its our country, want to come here use the front door and ask to come in.

They paid to get into the country illegally so they can afford to pay for their legal expenses to try to stay here. They are not “displaced persons” in the first instance. they have knowingly paid criminals to bribe government officials in their own countries as well as Indonesia. I was always of the belief that knowingly bribing government officials was a crime in all countries…..Therefore the ALP has knowingly allowed criminals into our society. I do not care what the excuse for being a criminal may be but the fact remains they are criminals. If you steal some food… Read more »

The coalition plan for ragheads no more claims paid for is the best news i have heard all week

SandraElmington
Member

ASYLUM seekers will be denied free government advice on lodging claims and launching appeals under a controversial Coalition plan to end taxpayer-funded support for boat arrivals. The scrapping of the service, created to help asylum seekers lodge refugee applications and appeal adverse decisions, would save up to $100 million over the next four years. It would apply not only to new arrivals but to any of the 30,000 asylum seekers currently in Australia who may still be accessing the service. In the latest addition to Tony Abbott’s expanding border protection crackdown, to be released today, those deemed by the Coalition… Read more »

I believe those stitches in the picture should just stay in place. What you have pointed to Larry is the epitome of WHY they keep flocking to our shores. We the misinformed public are not told about such tactics as Gillard’s pay outs, but you can bet your cider slime every opportunist in the middle east knows about it. Its like the bloody lotto!
