First some good news: Risk of other countries copying boat turn-backs low: UN High Commissioner for Refugees (SMH, 2 July).

Australian detention centre secrecy laws condemned by World Medical Association (GA 3 July)

Can Bill Shorten win government without a boat-free policy? It's unlikely (GA 2 July): This opinion piece annoyed me by failing to mention neither the fact that the incumbent government has not stopped the boats, nor that there are outright alternatives to "detention and deterrence" which Labor could adopt as its policy. The frightening success of the abuse of refugees for both major parties puts the ALP in a tricky position, it's true. Takes a bit of lateral thinking to get out of one of those.
