Haven sought

PEOPLE, in my opinion, can voice their opinion as much as they like, even Charlie Gibson in his letter in last week�s edition headlined �Days of worry�.

People can choose to listen or read those opinions or not but, Charlie, don’t let the facts get in the way of a good yarn.

The boat people are not, as Charlie states, illegal. They may not be the most popular visitors to our shores but they are seeking, legally, a safe haven as per the charter of the United Nations.

They are called “refugees” not “illegal boat people” and it is Australia�s job to work out who are genuine refugees and who are not.

Sorry Charlie, it�s not your job.
