Good riddance this will save us millions.

This invasion is a war and the Labour party is responsible for allowing it to happen and the consequences.

Why has this even made the news ? It happened in Indonesion waters didn't it I bet it didn't even make the news there!!!!!

Australian greens must be happy with this. By premoting bote arrival they are helping to cull the terror supporting bogus Tamils to dround in the sea. We all should vote for Australian greens.

More and more boats should come to australia, plenty of space in australia, to accomadate bogus Tamils. We wouldn't know the dead ones are high cast vellalah Tamils or low cast Tamils. Karayer Tamils are use to the sea. The dead ones must be vellalah ones?

75 in one go, not bad, I like to hear amnesty internationals point of view on this?

these are no asylum seekers!they are mere opportunists handing cash for a free aussie lifestyle without really working for it!

they neither proved themselves worthy in their land of origins and have not contributed significantly in any way back in their home country!

they shouldnt be viewed as asylum seeekers but materialistic seekers looking out for a country thats easily suckered.there are like 200 countries all over the world from israel,east timor to malaysia.they aint looking for those countries because they know they would be paid like $2/hour.

australia should stop immigration of these so called fake asylum seekers as sri lanka is not in a state of war and these people need to work and build a better sri lanka using their own hard work!they should work in aussie immigration camps enough to pay for their own air ticket and sent back to sri lanka asap.dont need any paperwork or case officers even.

stop immigration process of boat people when their countries are not at war!thesze are not refugess!!!

they should be back in their country to build it up thru thick n thin and make it prosperous!instead they are playing hooky and paying indonesian fishermen to bring them to australia n expect a life by not carrying their own weight back in their own country!

if australia grants these folks any residential status who neither worked hard in home country and are not exactly from a country decimated by wars then ...thousands will come by boat and killing themselves in the process.

they should be made to work for their air ticket only back to country of origin if they dont have $$$$.be it sweeping the floor in town to painting buildings under the watchful eyes of police.these are people who dont deserve anything as they had not proven their worth from country of origin except thru deception!

by giving them a status or residency when they are not having a war of any sort at home and are still in the process of 3rd world nation building,australia will only attract more boat people to its shores with many killed in the process of their dangerous and illegal boat ride to australia.

stopping these asylum problem is easy and that will prevent more drownings.

u could either machine gun them all in the water like some uboat submarine nazi captain

or

u could stop any immigration process on boat people who are not from a country thats having a war and make them work while in australia when they come in enough to pay for their air ticket back to their country.

they do not have any education or experience thats reecognised worldwide.these people need to go back and build up their country instead.

The anoying thing about this story is that it was in Indonesian waters not Australian, yet Gillard runs to assist knowing the Indonesian government and services are well able and more than capable to handle this crisis......but there's Gillard still trying to make herself look like a great humanitarian to the UN and using valuable Australian money and resources when this was in no way necessary...A pathetic ruse, and the agenda to take the attention of her and her government over the Julian Assange affair and their negative immage showing them as a calous and US supporting bunch of traitors to the freedome of spirit and speach of an inocent Aussie.....Labor is not a government we respect or are proud of..... and the Liberals are no better, because we don't see them pushing the government to help Assange either. The world should see The Australian government and oposition as liberal deniers and oppressors of the inocent till proven guilty theory, unless it is a government official they are trying to protect overseas....Dump the bastards I say they are bringing the image of a free and open Australia worldwide down...how can they spruke about the inhumanities in other countries and lecture them about a great economy when they fail to support one of their own morally verbally and financially. This is an arm of the US not and independent Australian true blue government...they have sold out not only Assange but everything we stand for.....DUMP THE BASTARDS.....

Can anyone tell me why 90% of these boat people throw their passports, or ID away after leaving Indonesia,? Why don't they fly to Australia ? It's much cheaper, and safer. These people were only 40 km off Indonesia when they made their first call for help. Why didn't the Indonesians rescue them? Why didn't the Australian navy return them to Indonesia? Lots of questions, but no answers !

This is a Sri Lankan forum, you have your panty in a knot, with some s**t crust of your unwashed a*** scrambled in it. Having this bogus terror asylum seekers in will definitely increase the IQ of both countries, you may get some workers who pay tax for a Chang and if the local talent is at your level there is a future for the lucky country once we finished selling the dug up soil to china.

Australian greens are the once advocating this uncontrolled immigration of unsavory individuals.

Give more mony to amnesty international and see how they howling like bitches on heat with the the Australian greens.
