Dear Mr Abbott,

Your website says that you lead "an accountable and open government".
However, you seem to be somewhat remiss with following through on this
commitment when your government is asked about asylum seekers. I was
particularly upset when I heard your most recent comments, calling the
concerns of those who wish to keep our government accountable "idle
curiosity".

It is not idle curiosity when I take an interest in my country's immigration
policies. It is not idle curiosity when I have concerns about my country's
record on human rights. It is not idle curiosity when I seek to make sure
that my government is helping the world more than it hurts.

How can you consider your government to be "accountable" while calling
attempts to keep it accountable "idle curiosity"?

Sincerely,
Deird

What do you mean we live in a democracy? :(

I'd like to say something meaningful, but I can only really express my feelings about our current government by smashing the keyboard.
