Labor using ‘doublespeak’ on border protection policy

Liberal Senator Amanda Stoker says Labor confirming its commitment to Operation Sovereign Borders while “conveniently dropping out those bits that they don’t like” is “doublespeak at its best”.This comes as a third asylum seeker boat arrived on Australia’s shores since election day.“You’re not committed to Operation Sovereign Borders if you’re not prepared to do all of the three steps necessary to make it work,” Ms Stoker told Sky News host Rowan Dean. She said “people smugglers know that” as they’ve “already got people lining up to get on boats” and arriving on our shores.
