A former Victorian Supreme Court judge says proposed new powers for security guards at detention centres would allow them “to beat asylum seekers in detention to death” with impunity.
Victorian taxpayers have been left with a $339 million bill after the State Government reached a deal to cancel the contracts for the controversial East West Link road project.
And if you want an idea of how bad the commercial exploitation of ANZAC day has gotten, read this.
