dc.description.abstractPrime Minister Howard once said that the times would suit him, and they do. At great expense a few years ago, the navy was deployed to rescue a lone British sailor in the Southern Ocean. And the nation was transfixed by the drama. Now the government and our defence forces turn their backs on sinking boats crammed with people and, according to the polls, 70% of Australians on both sides of politics support them. So confident is it in its mandate, our government charges refugees for their years of detention. So certain is it of the nation’s state of denial, it returns damaged and despairing people to the very countries we accuse of harbouring terrorists. I do not recognise my country any more.en
