It is a miserable thing to report, but our politicians who inflict unspeakable misery on refugees are apparently not willing to explain themselves.

An Australian citizen recently wrote to six Federal MPs asking a couple of very simple questions.  Each letter was less than a page long.  Five of the six MPs simply ignored her letters.  Apart for being bad manners, it shows utter contempt for the electorate.  The worst offenders – the ones who simply ignored the letters – are:

Josh Frydenberg – ignored every letter

Kevin Andrews – ignored every letter

Sarah Henderson – ignored every letter

Michael Sukkar – ignored every letter

Alan Tudge – ignored every letter

The only MP who responded to the letters was Barnaby Joyce.  He referred the letters to the Minister for Immigration.

Have a  look at the list below.  See how simple the questions are.

If Federal MPs are not willing to answer sensible, simple questions like these, they do not deserve to be in parliament at all.
