I wanted to say a big thanks to all the journos in Canberra that have called out the lies about the #MedeVacBill directly to MPs spreading them in the last 48 hours, thank you for doing the job of great journalism, which is to hold power to account in the interests of the truth..

If this is true it is absolutely scandalous #MedeVacBill.

Thanks to everyone who has been offering to chip in to help after #MedeVacBill. Our real work continues, work we’ve been doing for 5 years, the casework & advocacy to have sick refugees medically transferred off Manus & Nauru. Almost all unfunded, chip in.

Christmas Island doesn’t have the medical facilities. This is not where terribly sick people should be transferred. #Morrison is denying reality. #MedevacBill.

So the terminally cynical @ScottMorrisonMP is going to evacuate the sick asylum seekers to Christmas Island for medical treatment? FFS. As if the medical facilities there are up to scratch for that purpose. Slimy, devious and mendacious. #MedevacBill.

Suggesting that the #MedevacBill itself will be responsible for a surge in boat arrivals is about as believable as saying Melbournians are too scared to go out to dinner because of Sudanese gangs. #auspol.

@Qldaah 🤔 If I had to choose between Katharine Murphy and Scott Morrison re the context of understanding nuances ..... 💡 it would be @murpharoo every time! SloMo you have to go. #MedeVacBill #auspol.

Fact: The #MedEvacBill passed by the Australian Parliament yesterday, and the Senate this morning, does not allow new arrivals to be covered, it only covers those men and women currently on Nauru and Manus Is..

@michaelkoziol This is a tragic turn of events. @MathiasCormann was once a respected member of the Senate. Gloss came off during #Libspill but now he has sunk to these lows it demonstrates a complete lack of character. Very disappointing. #MedeVacBill.

@KarenMMiddleton #MedevacBill #auspol If these people are so Dangerous Why is it OK for Australia to dump them in PNG and Nauru??.

In the passing of the #MedevacBill, I want to especially note the role of Tony Smith who carried out his duties as Speaker of the House with full impartiality. A small moment perhaps, but a great contribution to our parliamentary democracy. #auspol.

“Let’s set the record straight. The #Medevacbill was desperately needed because of the treatment of refugees on Manus and Nauru, and is based on doctors’ advice. This was needed because of the unconscionable obstruction to medical transfers through the courts.” @drkerrynphelps.

BREAKING: @drkerrynphelps “I do hope sick people detained on Manus and Nauru now get the medical care they need. We’ve heard a lot of nonsense about this law. There will be a proper triage process, with adequate checks and balances in the form of a medical panel.” #MedevacBill.

We routinely transfer patients from Vanuatu and Fiji for medical treatment. The #MedevacBill is no different. The refugees offshore are in Australian facilities under Australia’s care. There is no excuse to transfer patients from those countries, and not Manus or Nauru..

#BREAKING: The refugee medical transfer bill has passed in the Senate 36-34. #MedevacBill.

Just waiting on an announcement from @ScottMorrisonMP that Australia will be sending foreign aid to assist Indonesian fisherman purchase boats #auspol #MedevacBill.

@ScottMorrisonMP tough on border protection? Rubbish. Last financial year 27,931 people applied for protection visas arriving by air 64,362 by air under Morrison/Dutton. Far higher than by boat. The focus on boats if all about votes #MedevacBill.

The hysteria and lies being spouted by Morrison & Co are distasteful at best, sickening at worst. He flips between “I don’t care” to “the sky is falling”. It’s pathetic. So, so pathetic #MedevacBill.

@_rebase Spot on. People think that this applies only to the existing mob on Manus. When more arrive the “advocates” will fire up again. Same shit, different day. #MedevacBill.

#medevacbill is now trending in #Melbourne.

@KarenMMiddleton Unbelievable!!! Dutton’s dog pisses on his leg. #Senate #MedevacBill.

Morrison and Dutton are furious at having lost their #MedevacBill war on humanity and morality. Threat to re-open #ChristmasIsland is a spiteful reaction..

You also know that the very basis of the paranoia that refugees will abuse the #MedevacBill is the nonsense belief that poor brown people are only manipulative and would break a leg on purpose, whereas white affluent people are honourable and would never manipulate the system.

#MedevacBill #MediVac The next election is going to be vicious. Australia is divided over Medical help and Activists in the Medi-Political sphere. Reckon Labor has significantly damaged itself with this Bill..

You are “lower than a snakes belly” @ScottMorrisonMP for blocking medical transfers for sick people for over six years. #BackTheBill #MedevacBill.
