“Letting Biloela family stay will lead to influx of people wanting to spend 3 years locked on an island while their child contracts a rare blood infection”

“We let one family in and next thing we have thousands of families arriving at our doorstep saying, ‘lock me up in a cage’"

“Letting Biloela family stay will lead to influx of people wanting to spend 3 years locked on an island while their child contracts a rare blood infection”

The Government says it cannot give in to the demands of those seeking resettlement of the Biloela family in Australia, pointing out that it will set an expectation that anyone who spends three years locked on an island under armed guard while witnessing their three-year-old child contract a life-threatening blood infection and untreated pneumonia will be allowed into the country.

“We let one family in and all of a sudden we have thousands of families arriving at our doorstep saying, ‘lock me up in a cage’,” a Home Affairs spokesperson said.

“I understand people’s sympathies for this family, but if we fail to send a message now, then we’ll have people just waltzing on in, saying ‘all I have to do to get into this country is watch my children grow up in a prison without proper medical care and I’m in’. It’ll be a free-for-all”.  

The Tamil family, originally from Sri Lanka, was bundled into vans and taken from their home in Biloela, Queensland in 2018, which according to the government officials is the equivalent of putting out the welcome mat and saying, ‘come to Australia’.

Vic Opposition Releases List Of 12 Unanswered Questions About Who Took The Cookie From The Cookie Jar

Victorian Shadow Treasurer Louise Staley has intensified her campaign against the Andrews’ government, demanding answers to a list of questions about an alleged theft that took place at a cookie jar earlier in her childhood.  

Under the heading ‘Premier owes Victorians some simple answers’, Staley used a press release to list twelve questions that she says have yet to be answered by the government.

The press release read:

“A cookie was stolen from the cookie jar. But more than 50 years on, we are none the wiser as to who stole it.

These are questions that have come up again and again and again, for as long as I can remember. Since I was a little girl. And still, we are yet to get satisfactory answers from this government. What are they trying to hide?

Victorians deserve answers to these 12 simple questions:

  • Who took the cookie from the cookie jar?
  • Was it Dan Andrews who took the cookie from the cookie jar?
  • If not Dan Andrews, then who?
  • Who owns the cookie jar?
  • Was the missing cookie reported to the police?
  • If not, has anyone been interviewed either formally or informally about what took place at the cookie jar?
  • Was the cookie from the Arnott’s Family Assorted Pack or was it another, lesser-known brand?
  • Was it one of those cookies with cream in the middle, or a single cookie arrangement?
  • Why are we calling them cookies and not biscuits?
  • Could it, in fact, have been the Cookie Monster who took the cookie from the cookie jar?
  • Why am I, a 55-year-old woman, making references to fictional children’s characters in my press releases?
  • Was it a real cookie, or was it a ‘body double’ pretending to look like a cookie?

We will continue to ask these questions, over and over again, even if it starts to get very repetitive if need be, until we have a resolution.
