It’s funny how SBS gets away with such politically partisan programs.

Yep, all those Coalition members (Anderson, Reith) in the cast . Why don’t they balance up with a few labour-ites and greens?

I was more referring to the show’s obvious aim to elicit sympathy for asylum seekers and the implicit condemnation of Australia for not being more ‘welcoming’ of as many asylum seekers that can get here.

Shouldn’t the politically correct, feminist-grunge-hipsto-politico food coop have organised for a poster that doesn’t put the pretty blonde at the front?

Am I alone in thinking that a food co-op is an odd venue for this particular event?

And while I’m at it, I’m inspired by seeing that Canberra will be represented at the gig by a model, former Neighbours actress and (starve the lizards) Big Brother contestant. Real gravitas there.

That’s not really a political issue, it’s an issue of human decency and basic humanity. Besides, it’s a commercial station nowadays, it can hold whatever bias it wants to.

What, can’t handle the truth??

Just watch ACA or today tonight if you want to believe they’re all job stealing queue jumpers.

Yes an organisation that receives more than $200 million in taxpayer funds a year should really be regarded as a commercial station.

I found Imogen quite charming when I met her. Had an open mind about things. It will be interesting to see what she, and the others in this series, think of the asylum seeker issues.
