It’s not just the economy, stupid

Why isn’t stopping the boats, and migration generally, an issue, and a major issue at that?

Sure, a Labor Government will ruin the economy. They have never done anything but. Their one trick is to argue that if you elect the ALP, they will stop the unions from wrecking everything in sight. And with Sally McManus at the helm at the ACTU, there may be more to it than usual, and it is usually pretty terrible. But the ALP also comes with a green agenda, a promise to further redistribute income from those who earn it to those who didn’t, and much else that makes you wonder who would vote for such a self-destructive mob.

So while I think this is true up to a point – It’s still the economy, stupid – there are other things as well.

    Because immigration is a good thing? More South Africans I say. Maybe fewer Canadians.

    More South Africans I say.

    Hear, hear. South Africans are prepared to live where Australians don’t want to live, and do the work Australians don’t want to do.

    Surely you are not suggestiong we discriminate against Canadians. Might have to call the HRC.

    South Africans of what ethnicity?

  7. Sinclair Davidson

    Good point Steve. How about we discriminate against those Canadian immigrants who think immigration is a bad thing. 😎

    South Africans of what ethnicity?

    Any ethnicity. Zimbabweans too.

    Will they all have sexy accents ?

    The Australian media are busy busy confecting a climate change extinction – the punters are buying it!

    It has been commonly accepted that 1 species will become extinct every million years.
    With 8 million species estimated to be on planet earth – that suggests every year 8 species will become extinct.

    So, how are we travelling?
    Over the last 100 years we know of 500 species that have disappeared, some are presumed to be extinct.

    This is much, much lower than the 8 species per year average.

    Far from being an emergency – it would appear to be nothing to write home about!

    Sexy accents don’t interest me. Work ethic does.

    We’re not working hard enough. I blame restrictions on firearm ownership and shooting licences.

    The farmers would be good to get, but as to the others, well we already have a crowded field of home invaders and mobile phone muggers.

    If only people could see the difference between open borders and immigration. Oddly, my problem is trying to go to Canada where they won’t let me enter the country other than on a Canadian passport which I no longer have.

    It’s probably fair to say that we can never have enough (very) senior banking executives who are also fluent in Latin, but somewhat further down the talent and credentials scale, one has to question whether the rhetoric (skills shortages, ageing population etc.) which justifies the scale and scope of our immigration program matches the reality.

    Politicians who had the intestinal fortitude, and the skill, to raise this and related questions in a reasoned manner might be pleasantly surprised by the public response. Labor and Liberal candidates might find that it would help them get a 4 in front of their party’s first preference support, and Greens might find that it would earn them respect as a party with practical concerns about pressures on the Australian environment, rather being seen as a party more concerned with green-washing a national population ponzi scheme.

    The bookies have the Shorten 1000 year Reich a very short odds on favourite.

    I welcome our union thug klepto-overlords.
