Finland’s prime minister, Juha Sipila, has said he will not be able fulfil a promise to put up a family of asylum seekers.

Sipila, a former telecoms executive, prompted controversy in September by saying he would open his second home in northern Finland to refugees.

But on Sunday he told public YLE radio that he had had to put the plan on hold because of security concerns, though he would support a refugee family in other ways until the situation changed.

Australia, by hardening its borders to refugees two years ago, has been largely immune to the latest global upsurge in asylum seekers.

The Coalition’s boat turnback policy was harsh, ugly and effective, so effective that Labor has now adopted it too. Because of this, Australia is now in a position to make measured responses from a position of strength, by gradually increasing its refugee intake and helping alleviate the greatest human suffering since the Second World War.
