On the ABC news last night there was coverage of the condition in Indonesian immigration detention centres were whole families live behind a curtain, living and sleeping on the floor in a single space.
There is no furniture, there is little space for children to play and there are no toys for the children play with.
There is also little hope that these families will ever get out of this situation.
You wonder if Malcolm Turnbull and Bill Shorten can find some space in their black hearts, some small ounce of compassion to initiate legislation that would allow these poor souls to come to Australia.
They won’t take up much space.
