Christmas Island detention centre cost $27 million to 'detain four people'

It’s been revealed almost $27 million has been spent reopening the Christmas Island detention centre this year with only four people so far detained at the facility.

The unnecessary detention and cruelty of a few people at vast cost to the Taxpayers and the Liberal Party of Australia still claim the high ground, of being good economic managers and keeping our borders safe.  Wrong on both counts.  How can settled, valued members of a community be of any threat?  Answer: they cannot and never have been a threat of any kind.  It's just a stunt by Peter Dutton to prove he can dominate people who are vulnerable.

Integrity in government is vital.

We are culpable if we remain silent.
