Former Liberal Prime Minister rips into current Liberal Party leader on asylum-seeker policy

“The most effective way to restore integrity and public confidence in  asylum  seeker policy  is through strong leadership, myth busting and accurate  information. Not to present a policy that is the closest thing to evil you can get. A policy that is full of misinformation."

“In 2010-11, 4730 asylum seekers  arrived by boat. During the same period, more  than  13 million people crossed our borders and arrived in Australia; 4730 out  of 13.9 million is not a ''system vulnerable to abuse''."

“This is the opposite of integrity. It is inhumane and demeans Australia. Is this the basis on which Abbott will operate if he, as he believes he will, becomes prime minister?"
