The huge disconnect in who we should be helping?

Jason Morrison questions our priorities when at Christmas Island there is food being dumped because there is too much of it at due by dates, yet charities cry out for assistance to help those in need.

Bring on the screaming, chants, sledging and passion. Contrast it with riots in the streets in recent weeks. John Stanley is proud to be an Aussie, where tribal passions are restricted to the sporting field.

Blog comments Your Say

  • The report that I saw (on Yahoo7News) said that food had passed its `best before` date, Not its `use by` (i.e. Expiry) date. If this is true then what is really needed on Christmas Island is a public awareness campaign to educate the locals responsible for dumping the good food, to bring them into line with the true meaning, and difference between, the two terms. It looks to me like they have misunderstood the implications of the definition of the term `best before`.

  • This is ridiculous, you cannot push and push for offshore processing, see it occur and then complain about the logistics of food supply. What is supposed to be done? We ship/fly the partially eaten food back to Australia? Or do we keep the asylum seekers in detention and not feed them? You can't have it both ways, Jason.

  • WTF?
    Due by date, why are "Illegal" invaders of our country being given a choice of what they can and cannot eat. There a thousands of people all over Australia that live on the poverty line and these people are given a choice?
    There is something very very wrong here!
