Paul Howes speaking out on refugee policy

Good on Paul Howes, national secretary of the Australian Workers Union, for speaking out (reported in the SMH) against the considered wisdom in the federal ALP and Liberal/National Parties to take a “tough line” on refugees.

The current policies, on both sides, are low-rent ones that “hard heads” must have decided are the only electorally possible ones. The hard heads should reconsider this view.
