Which solution will stop smugglers?
Two more boats intercepted by Australian authorities, including one that called for help in Indonesian waters despite not being in trouble at all. Stuart Bocking asks what is the solution that will stop the smugglers.

The latest Newspoll shows voters blame both major parties for the political deadlock on the asylum-seeker deadlock. Stuart Bocking says Tony Abbott has also been stung with his lack of cooperation on the issue.

Send back all the indians first to show them Australia is serious about the problem.Robert Thursday 12 July, 2012 - 9:02 PM
The best way to stop the boats is to get a government with a backbone, one that puts Australia and it's people first.One that will withdraw all aid to Indonesia until it holes up it's end of the bargain. Stop paying for services that are not delivered.Lomax Thursday 12 July, 2012 - 2:58 PM
Remove the incentives to come here. Turn up without documents you go back immediately, no permanent residency just TPV's, no access to our legal system, no welfare handouts, no family reunion and no onshore processing. Say you will tow the boats back and do it! Indonesia will soon get the message and close off their Airports to these people. All of the above should be sufficient to make them spend their $10,000 more wisely and save taxpayers billions. We can then spend our money on helping our homeless people, the disability scheme and many other deserving causes here in Australia.Susan Thursday 12 July, 2012 - 1:56 PM
