"Six prominent Australians risk their lives to experience the reality of refugee life, as they embark on an extraordinary and confronting three week journey."

Must read and watch! Go Back To Where You Came From series director Lincoln Howes on Peter Reith and I behaving like a 'long-married couple' 

"Peter Reith is just a right-wing misogynist. That’s not an insult, it’s just a description."
