This letter by one of our readers, James Horton was sent not just to Bill Shorten but to The Age, The Australian, the Herald Sun and a copy to The AIMN. I publish it here as most of our readers, as well as myself, support onshore processing of asylum seekers.

Dear Bill,

I am writing to you as leader of the Opposition to ask you take a lead in undoing the harm being caused by our current asylum seeker policy, by rejecting off-shore processing and indefinite detention.

There is a human tragedy currently unfolding before us and you have an opportunity to re-embrace the values your party once stood for, by helping bring to a more timely end to a dark chapter in our country’s history. With each passing day, we are all the more diminished as a people and as a nation.
