Take the children elsewhere

 

I was in a bookshop and as I passed the front desk on my way out, I saw a full-page Australian government ad promising to deny people peace if they seek refuge by boat. It said in capital letters “YOU WON’T BE SETTLED”, and they have been true to their word.
It seemed clear to me that the target audience was not asylum seekers, but Australian citizens, and the issue was class.
