If you pay for the funeral of a dead asylum seeker, it just encourages more of them to jump on boats.
 If an asylum seeker wants to bury their 9 month child at taxpayers' expense, s/he needs to come up with a decent policy proposal.
 Funerals cost so much money, and we should all be angry. They explains why Scotty Morrison remarked on Macquarie Radio:
I know probably more than anyone how strongly people feel about this issue, how angry they get about the costs that are involved. I share that anger, and I want to see that changed ...
Funeral directors can look forward to tough times ahead.
 Both compassion and sex are not beyond budgetary constraints. As Barnaby Joyce correctly remarked, the price of compassion is ...
... not limitless. You can't do it with a completely open cheque book.
I'd hate to do it with a chequebook fullstop!
 We need to have an asylum policy that favours Christians over Muslims. We don't have that at the moment. Hence you have this kind of thing happening:
At Castlebrook Cemetery in Rouse Hill, five more coffins were lowered into the ground; a husband and wife, their young son and daughter and an aunt. A little girl in a purple dress and leggings stood out against eight weeping family members and friends dressed in black.
The victims were Protestants from Iran. "They had dreams of a better life and they came to our country searching for something,'' said the Reverend David Misztal from St Jude's Anglican Church, Dural. ''They desperately wanted a place to call home."
This would never have happened if we had a pro-Christian asylum policy. But we still shouldn't pay for the funerals.
