‘Dead to me’: The world according to Peter Dutton

MINISTER FOR HOME AFFAIRS PETER DUTTON recently had a spontaneous brainwave — one that appeared to be completely void of consultation with advisers or fellow Ministers, detailed research or, indeed, actual thought.

Mr Dutton, who has previously only spat derision at refugees and migrants in general, decided it would be a good idea to fast-track visas for “persecuted” white South African farmers needing assistance from a “civilised” country like Australia — forgetting that there isn’t even a queue of white South Africans trying to obtain Australian visas (unlike the Rohingya, for example).

This sudden and – as many said – diplomatically disastrous idea, was met with much local and international condemnation.
