In Russell Brand's latest episode of The Trews he returns to the topic of Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott and his government's management of asylum seekers, specifically children.

The video analyses the corporations that profit from the continued maintenance of refugee camps, such as those on Manus Island and Nauru Detention Centre.

Brand is quick to highlight Abbott's statements made last week in which he stated he felt "no guilt" for children in detention centers.

"There are more refugees now than there has been in any other time of the world... It seems like our only response to that in countries like Australia and Great Britain is to lock them up."
