Jaymes Diaz makes headlines after failing to name any details of his 6-point plan, ‘plant trees’

Greenway Liberal candidate Jaymes Diaz in Australia has learned the importance of understanding policy details ahead of the Federal Election on September 7.

A Channel Ten reporter asked Diaz to run through the Liberal Party’s six point plan on addressing immigration.

Jaymes Diaz 6 point plan gaffe“We have a six-point plan to make sure that we do stop the boats,” said Diaz.

“Six points, could you run through them for us,” the reporter replied.

“Well, I can run through all the details of the points, but look, the main thing is…” Diaz went on, looking stunned.

“The six points, the six points,” the reporter interjected… Diaz failed to list the six points.

“Here’s the thing. The boats started under Kevin Rudd. Under the Coalition government, we’d stopped the boats,” responded Diaz.

Compared to a deer in the headlights Diaz is taking lumps by the press. The 37-year-old Filipino-Australian migration lawyer, just gave a gift to his 2010 opponent, Labor’s Michelle Rowland

Diaz’s Liberal party website says he is a family lawyer, and a long-term resident of Greenway who established an awards program for schoolchildren in 1998.

Below the video is the plan.



Here for the record is the Coalition’s six-point plan.

In its first 100 days, the Coalition will:

  • Turn boats back where it’s safe to do so.
  • Increase capacity at offshore processing centres in Nauru and PNG.
  • Lease and deploy extra vessels to help patrol boats transfer asylum seekers.
  • Conduct ministerial visits to Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Nauru and PNG to discuss “operational matters”.
  • Establish a new Operation Sovereign Borders taskforce, and create a joint agency taskforce for asylum seekers.
  • Reintroduce temporary protection visas.
