Following them home

Anyone who criticises Bob Ellis has my support in doing so.

I may or may not be part of the book's target audience, but I found the mention of neo-colonialism a bit of a distraction.

There are indeed many Afghanis still on Nauru waiting decisions, visas etc AND afgo, of course, is not safe enough to be returned to legally. So what to do? The media ignores Nauru these days, far too difficult seemingly...
