Oh, look. The Deputy Sheriff has popped up again via News Ltd to have a childish go at the man who defeated him and undid some of his nastier policies, and to spout the shit we comprehensively rejected in 2007. And to make amazing claims about his magical refugee-bashing powers:
I’d stop the boats.
I don’t know that locking kids behind razor wire in the desert, or on remote islands, would still be enough, Johnny. Remember, there’s been a massive increase in world refugee numbers since we so thoroughly kicked you out. You might need more. Sharks with laser beams? A three thousand kilometre moat filled with genetically-engineered super crocodiles? A promise to brutally decapitate every third refugeee picked up? Setting fire to the Montara oil spill? Don’t keep the crazy ideas you’ve absorbed from the conservative echo chamber in which you’ve been living since your humiliating defeat, all to yourself!
Say the people did rise up, just like in Howard’s more imaginative dreams, and reinstall him to the former position he knows should never have been cruelly taken from him – how could he really ensure “no more boats”? How could he make this country so unpleasant, so nasty, that the refugees would be fleeing from here? Your suggestions in the comments.
