THE Gillard crew has signed its Malaysian deal, the intention being to see 800 illegal aliens deported. Fine, so far as it goes, which probably will not be very far at all.
Forget the resolute posturing and happy press conferences, which are no more than window-dressing. Yet to be resolved are the methods our government’s agents will employ to load the screaming, sobbing, clawing-at-the-carpet rejects onto their KL-bound planes.
This government does not have a good record when the time comes to shift those determined to stay put.
