Now that Australia is shaken by the story of Bioela family, just wanted to share this again. I wrote this article in 2018 and it's still relevant. The title is "Australia needs a moral revolution". https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/aug/31/australia-needs-a-moral-revolution?espv=1 …
Threadlet (+ a big thanks) Sometimes, Australia's best researcher Jommy and I get very frustrated putting out research that's either ignored or takes a long time to get traction. I understand it takes time to get traction but it's heartbreaking when it's totally ignored. . pic.twitter.com/GISNwgjxLc
Bioela family likely to be allowed to live free in Australia, decision expected imminently https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-06-14/biloela-tamil-family-asylum-seekers-settlement-decision/100214484 …
FYI: The “ritual abuse” phrasing, and the claim from Tim Stewart that he influenced it, was also first reported in 2019 by Guardian Australia
"I was at G7 as an official observer, Brian. It's very important that I report back to Australia about what was said. And, if I may say so, I'm very good at standing back and watching other people do all the work."
"And taking credit."
"That's one of the perks, Brian."
