Bill Shorten must end the hoax on the Australian people that Labor supports strong border security policies.
It is increasingly clear that should Labor ever return to government they will again throw open the nation's borders.
Mr Shorten's colleagues now don't even pay lip service to his claim that Labor will keep the key policy pillars that have stopped the boats.
Senator Lisa Singh is the latest to denounce Shorten's policy position and highlight what a fiction it is.
Labor constantly claims that regional processing centres in Nauru and Manus Island played a significant part in stopping the boats and would remain under a future Labor administration.
Yet, representing Labor at the United Nations, Senator Singh told the world that regional processing should be dumped.
Further she wants to bring the Illegal Maritime Arrivals in those regional processing centres to Australia; an action which would put the people-smugglers back into business.
Mr Shorten has to be held to account. Has he disciplined this Senator? If not, why not? Is it because she voices a view that is shared widely in Labor ranks?
More than a third of Labor's caucus is on-the-record as opposing the Coalition's successful border policies which Mr Shorten claims he would adopt.
If he can't control Labor's radical Left, he'll never maintain strong border policies.
Any pretence that he will is a myth to try and trick the Australian public.
As the Rudd-Gillard years showed, you can't trust Labor on border security.
