Rostrum: Live from The Red Turbo Room!
Hello, good afternoon and welcome to Rostrum!
Our weekend open discussion thread, this week brought to you live from the luxuriously appointed Red Turbo Room!
Earlier today, the team at Gutter Trash went along to hear Minister for no Immigration Scott Morrison’s weekly misinformation seminar; Operation Secret Boats. Just for laffs of course.
Apparently there’s been a “spike” in boat arrivals in the past week, with one boat in particular managing to sail directly to Christmas Island undetected.
When asked about the recent spate of arrivals, and how one boat arrived undetected, Morrison’s sidekick Commander Angus Campbell explained that “it is a big ocean.”
No one had ever thought about that before.
Morrison himself was quick to challenge allegations that boat arrivals had increased preferring to call the increase a “cluster” rather than a “spike”.
Commander Campbell says there were 4 boats this week. ‘Clustering’ he says.
When asked whether the recent “cluster” of boat arrivals is connected to Indonesia’s refusal to cooperate, Campbell replied that he wouldn’t comment on an ‘incredibly sensitive issue.’
Morrison was equally upfront, saying “I don’t think this needs to be over analysed.”
Morrison then continued in his usual manner – not giving journalists information, then blaming then for getting it wrong.
“Are there anymore questions …” says Scott Morrison.
Fuck’n oath there are.
