This is a powerful, must-read story in the Sydney Morning Herald. Check it out!

via The refugee crisis in the Mediterranean is a story of death and desperation.

Of course, the story is tragic but where are the political classes on this issue? Italy is doing her best to be humanitarian and she is criticized for being too soft and creating “a pull affect” for the smugglers. Where is the European Union? What have they done to bring the smugglers to justice?

I live on the Mediterranean and have crossed by ship from Italy to Egypt and can confirm that whilst it may not be an ocean, the waters can be very dangerous and are certainly very deep in places.

Let me ask an open question:

Why is the European Commission putting it’s head in the sand on illegal immigration?

Thoughts?
