A Red-headed Julia Who Speaks Her Mind

No, not the Actress Roberts. Rather, the IT girl of Aussie politics - Prime Minister Julia Gillard. She's refreshingly candid about Australia's peculiar problem with 'boat people.'

From the Prime Minister's coral lips: "For people to say they're anxious about border security doesn't make them intolerant, it certainly doesn't make them a racist, it means that they're expressing a genuine view that they're anxious about border security.

‘By the same token, people who express concern about children being in detention, that doesn't mean they're soft on border."

Back in April, the Australian government put a moratorium on refugee applications from Sri Lanka and Afghanistan. That suspension expired last week. What's next is anybody's guess.
