    Linking this to more boats coming (with the outcomes that has) it logically cannot as in the bill itself there is no motivation to get on a boat. Suggests that those saying it will are hoping for a boat and a disaster, much like our conservative radio friends.

    Two doctors must assess – either in person or remotely – the person and make the recommendation for transfer. The criteria used in the initial assessment and in any review is that the person: needs medical or psychiatric assessment or treatment is not receiving appropriate medical or psychiatric assessment or treatment in Nauru or Manus Island, and must be transferred for appropriate medical or psychiatric assessment or treatment. The recommendation is given to the Minister for Home Affairs who must either approve or refuse the transfer within 72 hours. The minister can refuse the transfer if the person has an adverse security assessment or if the person has a “substantial criminal record”. The minister has the right to approve Medical transfers to Australia are for a temporary period only, so those currently in Australia could still be returned to Nauru or Manus Island following their treatment. This will continue to be the case even now this bill is passed. These procedures are only applicable to asylum seekers and refugees who are on Nauru and Manus Island currently. The law will not apply to anyone who comes after the passage of this bill. Anyone brought to Australia for medical treatment must be kept in onshore immigration detention. Medical transfers that have occurred to date are mostly for psychiatric reasons or a combination of psychiatric and other medical reasons. The importance of providing rapid medical assessment and response to critically ill, or at-risk-of-dying, refugees and asylum seekers cannot be overstated. In August, 2014 a 24-year-old Iranian detainee on Manus Island, Hamid Khazaei, fell ill and presented to clinicians at the detention centre with “flu-like symptoms” and a small lesion on his leg. After a course of antibiotics, his condition deteriorated and he was transferred to a hospital in Papua New Guinea. He died a few days later. Please read the facts. It does not and cannot weaken our borders. Posting that it does puts you in the same spectrum as the people who jumped on the dead cyclist face book thread. You don't care about truth and enjoy people dying. Please see thread about S*Tt people and the internet

    So you don't know this. You think it will happen. As they had the numbers why did they not do it now. What do you think of the 900 people who have come from off shore under this government? Is this the fault of Shorten?

    There are 900 people who have been brought here from Manus and Nauru by this government for medical and other reasons.

    Improved race times

    As the thread was called improved race times. I improved my OD from 221 to 214. This was a result of better training and better mental approach to training, which gave m the confidence to execute on race day. Being mentally tougher on race day would not have made that OD time 2:10

    AP. What else does it take?

    Then there's always the know it all who asks too many questions, simply to enjoy the sound of his own voice - often asking a question in a way that it becomes a statement of something he feels he knows a bit about and would like to share with the audience - meanwhile the rest of the audience is starting to doze off

    USA next political star

    Is high speed rail, getting cars off roads, worse than spending $5 billion on a wall.

    its trickle up. Rather than give a few rich people lot, give a lot of people a little. That little will create demand rewarding people who take risk. This is better than rewarding rent seekers who take little to no risk with huge returns for doing nothing other than being born rich.

    So Ken Henry and his mate are gone. Wasn't he the tax review guy, should we be looking into what he did there.

    I read all your stuff. I find it interesting, how the principles have not changed, they are packaged nicely by people and sold. I like the message of there are no short cuts and that in the back half of the marathon you need character.

    Hmm, the strategy for less privileged whose rich mummy and daddies did not leave them money or usher them into a life of inherited privilege. is to make you so miserable that you leave, or live a shorter life because it is so horrible. We condemn these people to live in crappy western Sydney suburbs and convince them through 2gb and the daily telegraph to support people who would love to ship them off shore

    I mean should he be trusted given his conduct. Also is anyone doing anything about senior figures in charge of public policy settings then moving to industry where they could benefit from those settings
