Back in May, @JuliaGillard said offshore processing was "a slogan, not a solution"

Julia Gillard on a “Pacific Solution” when Tony Abbott promised it in May:

Federal Opposition Leader Tony Abbott yesterday announced a coalition government would establish an offshore detention centre and possibly turn back boats to toughen up Australia’s border protection.

“What Tony Abbott announced yesterday is a slogan, not a solution,’’ Ms Gillard told the Nine Network this morning.

“I mean, he’s not able to answer any of the basic questions. Where would people go?..”
