Tony Abbott no mention turning boats to SBY in talks Jakarta Indonesia megaphone cartoon 2012-10-17

The context of this cartoon was Abbott’s vociferous advocacy to all and sundry of his Asylum Seeker policy of “turning the boats” and towing boats back to Indonesia, where the policy is unpopular. In his talks with SBY, Abbott didn’t mention the policy, using the excuse that he was against megaphone diplomacy.
