#4 Australia is a victim of it's "caring and humanitarian" BS.
They extended the Refugee convention (along with Canada) to include a resettlement component. What that means is that any "asylum seeker" can claim resettlement in Australia once they reach any part of it. The scheme is extremely expensive and it is reckoned the each "refugee" cost the country many millions EACH.
Its been worked out that it would be cheaper to offer each seeker a million bucks, fingerprint and DNA them and give them the option of going back from whence they came.
It's basically bringing the country to its knees, proof positive that each good deed will be severely punished.
Jump in asylum seekers could cause budget blowout

#5 Talking about asylum: Assange granted asylum: report
ECUADOR has granted political asylum to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, according to a newspaper report.
President Rafael Correa granted asylum on humanitarian grounds, The Guardian reported on its website, citing "officials within Ecuador's government".
"We see Assange's request as a humanitarian issue," an unnamed official told the daily.
"It is clear that when Julian entered the embassy there was already some sort of deal," the official said.
