The ghost who sits....and sits....and sits

News today that this is the anniversary of Phillip Ruddock’s 36nd year in federal parliament.

Will the man who brought us Tampa, children overboard, Haneef, the Pacific Solution, the refusal (as Minister for Reconciliation) to recognise the stolen generation, the labelling of refugees as “parasites”, “queue-jumpers” and “double dippers” and the defence of the Northern Territory's racist mandatory sentencing laws to the United Nations Committee On The Elimination of all Forms of Racial Oppression never go away??

As the then One Nation member of the New South Wales upper house, David Oldfield, once said:
“When I see Mr Ruddock talking on television about [refugees], he looks and sounds like somebody from One Nation”
