Why not phone your local MP tomorrow, and ask them whether they’re comfortable with the idea of running a concentration camp?

via Janetter for Mac

Just lie back and think of Scott Morrison.

And, Dear Media, every single one of you who says “detention centre” not “concentration camp” is complicit. You submit to the spin.
