Ruddock plays down guantanamo ruling as ‘a bit of a joke’ in ABC poll
Mr Ruddock’s stance on the controversial Guantanamo Bay detention centre and other Australian matters has seen him labelled as a “joke” by ABC pollster Gary Morgan, who believes the prime minister would use the ruling as “an excuse to scrap the Australian security bill”.
Former Liberal leader and MP Kevin Rudd has admitted the Liberal Party would look at changing the current detention laws to allow for the release of certain people held in Australia under the detention laws.
In an interview with 4Q, Mr Ruddock said Australia’s current legal system could not cope without the current prison system.
“I’m absolutely convinced there’s no way in hell that we can manage to deal with terrorism in a way that is secure for Australians from coming to Australia,” the former health minister said.
“To be honest with you, we don’t know where those guys are going to be.”
However Mr Ruddock said that beca실시간카지노use the current system can be “well-run” it would not be a priority.
“You’ve got to look at the things that work in the current system and look at where the gaps in the system are, so that when it comes time to bring in more detainees and we have the capacity available, we don’t lose out on what’s valuable – that’s what it 우리 카지노will be about,” he said.
The poll found 41 per cent of those surveyed believed the current system made security worse than if they were held in a different country. Only 12 per cent said the current detention laws made it less secure.
But 38 per cent said the current detention laws made it safe, and only 8 per cent said the laws made things worse.
Mr Ruddock said that even if the current system made security worse – which he does not believe it does – Australia’s defence would not be at risk.
“It’s not up to me to manage security in a way that I can’t get anything done, but I’m just not going to be making it worse,” he said.
Mr Morgan said that because some of the men being held in Australia under the asylum seeker detention system do not come fr넷마블 포커om known terrorist groups, they could not be returned to their home countries because they do not have valid asylum visas.
