I like to watch SBS at times, but mind you, I also feel it can be a bit one-sided in its views...and it aint the side of politics I am on....As long as none of the released detainees are sent here I will be happy. Australia is NO LONGER the scrap heap for unwanted criminals and sexual perverts.
****I would like to see Sheriff Joe, run another Tent City to confine “suspected terrorists” and those who are proven terrorists. See how many rights they get afforded to them then….And dontcha ya just love the story about the Transexuals in Iran.... Homosexuals are killed but Transexuals get their half their operations paid for by...Now this I do not understand...but with AhMadinejad running the place, I should not be surprised.

Transexuals in Iran
