The focus of much of the political news has been the reaction of Scott Morrison, immigration spokesman for the Coalition, to the fact that several family members of asylum seekers were flown to funerals in Sydney from detention on Christmas Island. The funerals were in Sydney due to the wishes of family that the dead be laid to rest in Sydney.

Not to put too fine a point on it, Morrison thought that this was a waste of taxpayer dollars. Morrison has stated that the funerals should have been held on Christmas Island, with the family members in Sydney being forced to fly (presumably at their own expense) to Christmas Island.

A couple of points :

(1) Scott Morrison, you are absolutely disgusting. Attempting to score political points by criticising funeral arrangements for children is beyond the pale.

(2) Scott Morrison, you and your political brethren are screaming hypocrites. While you are dancing around screaming about 'waste', your colleague Barnaby Joyce has totalled a government car, while other MPs are busy stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of printer toner for their parliamentary offices. Didn't hear you caterwauling about government 'waste' in those circumstances, did I?

(3) Scott Morrison, you are obviously a worthy successor to Mr Tony Abbott, who never saw a non-white, non-Christian, non-male that he didn't want to subjugate.
