The boats have not stopped. They have changed direction and people are still dying. We don't hear about it because they are not washing up on the rocks at Christmas Island. So the problem is out of sight and out of mind.All Australians wanted the deaths and the boats to stop - that is one of the main reasons the Libs got in., and that is what has been achieved.
When it comes to the world's refugees, to use some current political parlance, Australia is a leaner, not a lifter.
