The polls told us to the Kevinator dumping her and switching back would put Labor back on top. you shuffle Labor's deck, No matter how many times you pull out a joker. aren't they? Polls are the modern day seances, running the shop They could have Mickey Mouse and it wouldn't make any difference. Lib Senator Simon Birmingham... But this python that visited Hello, mate. closest to doing really like to do to the lot of 'em. what the polls say voters would Is there a tip for this bit? There is, but you mightn't like it. Let him do whatever is the theory! Oh, boy! Politics, what a nest of vipers. Mark Riley, good morning. A big week ahead on asylum seekers - Minister's media conference especially if the Immigration yesterday is anything to go by? Yeah, I think this was'em lem of the situation facing the Yeah, I think this was'em lem matic government. Chris Bowen Mead government. Chris Bowen media conference was gate crashed by protestors who were chanting " protestors who were chanting "Shame Bowen shame" as he was trying to put the position. They are trying to override the High Court decision a few weeks ago. This is the protestors here, this is the disaster that causes media advisors in government and opposition, lendless sleepless nights but it's also a - I think an indication of the feeling in particularly in the left side of politics about the government's approach. This is the interesting thing about this policy, Sam. That the government is trying to override the High Court with an amountment to make offshore processing lawful again. It is being attacked internally by the Labor left, also by the Greens and Tony Abbott from the left. You know left, also by the Greens and now you are in trouble when the opposition, the Coalition comes at you from the left. So a very interesting week ahead when these amendments go to the party rooms, respectively and into the It's quite quan extraordinary Parliament.

On asylum seekers, Malaysia isn't a signatory and Nauru is. It is just politics and the immigration department if you go to Nauru, really the and the immigration department says asylum seekers remain under Australian care anyway and then you - they will end up onshore, you end up with an onshore processing system and the immigration detention system becomes overwhelmed and where are we then. What is plan B. This doesn't look like it will get through. Tony Abbott won't back it. The Greens won't back it. Where do they then? They are stuck with either won't back it. Where do they go Nauru, man is island and Christmas Island and onshore processing. It's another case of policy being overwhelmed by the rather peaked and aggressive and often angry politics of our day, Sam. And on it rolls. OK, Mark, great too chat to you, have a great we
