After spending the last 14 months denying Australians the oppoutunity to return home due to a lack of places available in quarantine, up to 11% of which were utilised by foreign investors, and allowing airlines to fly first class only flights to price out ordinary Aussies[1], Morrison has now placed a blanket ban on all arrivals from India. This resulted in over 9,000 Australians being abandoned in the sub-continent, 900 of whom are now officially classed as 'vulnerable' due to their health and finances[2]. 30% of Australian residents are foreign born[3] but the gov't has made little effort to accommodate their overseas trips by expanding quarantine facilities. Presumably the situation won't improve until the gov't opens a quarantine facility on Nauru[4].

Man went away on holiday during one kf the worst bushfires in history. He isn’t only incompetent, he lacks the character of a good leader. Dudes more useless than tits on a bull except for doing what he is told by ‘consulting’ firms from big corporations. Guess turds float to the top in the liberal party.

Djokivic has opened the world's eyes to the joke of an immigration system Australia operates. It turns out that those who are in Oz legally (in the eyes of the courts) after arriving through legitimate channels can be transformed into boat people on a whim whenever the minister for immigration feels like it;

“Today I exercised my power under section 133C(3) of the Migration Act to cancel the visa held by Mr. Novak Djokovic on health and good order grounds, on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so.”

“In making the decision, I carefully considered information provided to me by the Department of Home Affairs, the Australian Border Force and Mr. Djokovic.”

-Alex Hawke, Australian Immigration Minister

Djokivic is fortunate enough to have the backing of expensive lawyers and his own gov't, which insisted he be moved from the one star hotel that serves food infested with maggots to its detainees.
