We live in hope. 

This from former Prime Minister Helen Clark on whether there'll be any change to the 501 deportation policy, with the arrival of a new Australian Prime Minister. 

Anthony Albanese will be sworn in today. 

Clark told Mike Hosking the 501 policy is pretty tough on people who've effectively lived their whole lives in Australia. 

She says they hold a New Zealand birth certificate, but not much more experience with New Zealand. 

Clark says she expects the issue will be high on the agenda for us to take up with the new Government.
