Australia, under our last leader took a strong stance on 'boat people', economic migrants and refugees who attempt the dangerous sea crossing from Asia to Australia in barely seaworthy craft. We have locked these people away in island detention centers or out in the deserts. Labeled them 'queue jumpers', devastated their lives and chit chatted about their predicament on talk back radio for years. These two guys however deserve admiration and respect - what could be more Aussie than sailing here - in an esky.
