THEN IT'S A ONE WAY TICKET TO INDONESIA ...

BUT EXACTLY HOW THE OPERATION WILL BE CARRIED OUT IS ANYONE'S GUESS.....BECAUSE TONY ABBOTT AND HIS IMMIGRATION MINISTER SCOTT MORRISION WON'T TELL US

"The Immigration Minister and the Prime Minister are hiding from the Australian public, they're hiding from the media they're over in the corner hoping everybody will look away," said Sarah Hanson Young.

THAT EXPLAINS WHY WE'LL ALSO NEVER KNOW IF TWO BOATS CARRYING ASYLUM SEEKERS WERE INTERCEPTED .. WITH ONE DRAINED OF IT'S FUEL AND LEFT TO DRIFT BACK TO INDONESIAN WATERS

AS FOR THOSE CONTROLLED PRESS CONFERENCES...THEY'VE DIPPED OFF RADAR TOO....

"What is going on in the high seas, what dangerous circumstances are they forcing our navy and customs personnel into and how much is this costing the Australian tax payer," said Sarah Hanson Young.
