incompetence

Stick to your knitting

Dear Prime Minister,

Peter Dutton is spreading his malice and incompetence beyond the extensive realm you have given him. His repeated statements opposing marriage equality are not only wrong and completely inappropriate but have been made in such insulting, demeaning language which expresses not only his homophobia but his misogyny. He has repeatedly demonstrated that he is not fit to hold any position of responsibility. Remove him to the back bench.

For the 214th man on Manus island

Dear Prime Minister,

In the second letter written to me by an employee of DIBP (despite the fact that I address my letters to you and expect a response from you) there is the following paragraph:

The orderly resettlement of refugees will take time and will not be rushed.

And yet you, Minister Dutton and DIBP enforce a 'fast track assessment' process, after defunding legal and translation services, so that asylum seekers and refugees in Australia are set up to fail the onerous process of trying to make a refugee claim in a very tight deadline. Will that mean thousands more asylum seekers in indefinite detention?
