Tony Abbott urges Europe to adopt Australian policies in refugee crisis

"In speech honouring Margaret Thatcher, former Australian PM says instinct to ‘love your neighbour’ is ‘leading much of Europe into catastrophic error’

Former Australian prime minister Tony Abbott has called on Europe to take on Australia’s border security policies or risk “catastrophic error” and urged Western nations to “stand up for ourselves”.

In his first major speech since being forced out, Abbott said Europe should close its borders to migrants.

“The Australian experience proves that the only way to dissuade people seeking to come from afar is not to let them in,” he said."
