Here we go again!

And surprise surprise...

"The boat's self-appointed spokesman, Alex, vanished last week. One of the asylum seekers, 33-year-old Shan from Jaffna in Sri Lanka, says he is hopeful a decision is made in their favour soon."

Where's Alex? If nobody's allowed off the boat how can he just "vanish"?

Here kitty kitty... Or is it more a case of the rat deserting a sinking ship?

Just watching Lateline, Tony's head's on the chopping block again... cheap shots being flung around everywhere.

There's Indian students going off their brains too about the college situation.

Apparently there's going to be something on about the boat people also.

These students know what they got into
who wouldn't want to go to colleges with guaranteed graduation and all the tests' answers are given to get PR

They just pretended to be victims so the public feels sorry for them and hoping to get residency out of compassion

War against Terrorists is a blessing in disguise for Tamils in Sri lanka to seek refugee status in Australia and other western countries. Tamils already in these countries collect large amount of money from Tamil organizations to bribe politicians. Tamils in these countries, hoodwink the natives to get refugee status for their clan. One fine day these Tamils will definitely say we are the natives of these countries. They spread like a cancer all over the world. Kallathoonies is the name given for these boat people.

Dismissing the response by Colombo that Ban Ki Moon had not appointed panel of experts on other countries where there are "continuing armed conflicts on a large scale, involving major humanitarian catastrophes and causing the deaths of large numbers of civilians due to military action," as "simply untrue nonsense," Francis A. Boyle, professor at the University of Illinois College of Law, said that during the past year alone UN Human Rights Council had authorized Goldstone Commission investigation into Israel war crimes against Palestinians in Gaza. Noting that the "United Nations is just beginning to do the right thing for the Tamils," Prof Boyle urged that "Tamils around the world could do the same thing for establishing an International Criminal Tribunal for Sri Lanka (ICTSL)."

Vanni Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) allowed to resettle in some areas in Ki’linochchi and Mannaar districts are being subjected to severe restrictions and harassment by occupying Sri Lanka Army (SLA), sources close Jaffna Bishop's House said. This information was gathered from the group of Catholic Bishops of six districts who visited the said areas in Ki’linochchi and Mannaar recently, the sources said. The Bishops, however, are reluctant to officially disclose this situation in Vanni due to fear, the sources added.
