An anonymous reader writes: The Australian Government is well behind in the polls with an election due by the end of the year — so time to wave the terrorist doll, scream 'Terrorist, Terrorist", and hope the voters are scared out their wits.
An Indian doctor is working in Australia, and he went to med school with some of the terrorist suspects in England. He apparently left a mobile phone SIM card with his English cousin, and so after being locked up for more than a week without charge he was finally charged with "recklessly lending a SIM card to terrorists". Now this guy may be innocent or guilty of something or other, but when a magistrate released him on bail the Immigration Minister immediately revoked his work visa, and now he's off to an immigration detention centre. We Aussies have learnt from Guantanamo Bay !
