This man is being quoted in his capacity as Shadow Minister for Home Affairs as having said that Labour will join the common front combating the problem of illegal immigrants but "only if it is kept on board".
The initiative is commendable, and the complaint of not being kept in the know as to the grand projects of the Nationalist government is understandable. What is curious is the choice of phrase by the Honourable Shadow in order to explain his party's extraneousness from the issue.
In fact Honourable Gavin was so eager to describe that his party is not being kept privy to the goings-on with regard to the plight of the boat people that he insisted that the MLP should be kept "on board" from now on. On board what Gavin? The boat? Freudian games here, but funny ones to boot.
Am i the only one to get this sinking feeling?
