We have been warned : Comments

By Richard Laidlaw, published 27/3/2018

Peter Dutton, the Home Affairs minister who is leading the charge towards making Australia even less relevant to the world than it already is, was two months old when I arrived in Australia.

Richard Laidlaw is "still British" and lives "mainly in Indonesia" and, for some reason he thinks Peter Dutton is making Australia "even less relevant to the world than it already is". He clearly despises Australia, and he overestimates his importance and his petulant opinions. He seems to be an old-fashioned whingeing Pom with a chip on his shoulder. The more time he spends in Indonesia the better. I'll bet he doesn't have the nuts to be as rudely unpleasant to the Indonesians as he is to us.

Well said.

One concern is that it isn't just immigrants who are at risk.

If I was sent back to my place of birth I'd travel about 80km east. Surely Dutton has an answer for that... perhaps an educational facility in the desert. I hear that some former Dept of Immigration facilities are available.

Well, It's hard to know to understand what you're actually complaining about "mate"?

But that's all too obvious and fairly typical of the know it all endless complaining and comparing, very superior, long winded pom?

Peter Dutton is someone I rarely agree with, but support on principle, his turn back the boats successful border control!

After all, we have a right to our own autonomy and elect those who we feel best represent that!

Moreover, have had an absolute bellyful of whinging poms, not satisfied with wrecking their ancient homeland but want to replicate it in the antipodes?

With a large injection of or a heaping helping of the British disease that all but destroyed Britain as a manufacturing economy that exported to the world!

And probably explains why you chose a socialist like a witless Whitlam to support!

If it, our refugee policies etc., and we aren't good enough mate?

Feel free to shove off to your oh so much better and superior in every way, England! We'll even pass the hat around!

This is for “ttnb”: You miss the point. I’m Australian first, British (not “Pom”, they’re English) by heritage. I thought that was clear. My mistake. And since you’re being vulgar, if you don’t think I have the nuts to be rude to people outside the special biosphere as I am to my own people, you should have a look at Hector’s Diary at www.8degreesoflatitude.com

And for “Alan B”: Don’t bother with the hat, mate. I’ve got enough corks. It’s true that I voted for Whitlam in 1972. I voted for Goss in Queensland in 1989 too. But I’m a Liberal voter, though that’s really none of your business.
