Does this remind you of any of the 'Usual Suspects' on OLO?

Of course immigration can be stopped. All we need is politicians who are actually loyal to the country and the people, which of course, we do not have at the present time.

More thoughtful voting is required.

In the meantime, Australia is rooted.

Maybe we need a way to sack politicians part way through their term of office, if they lied or found to commit fraud etc.

Bishop just gave $44 Million to the UN as a bribe to get a seat on the UN Human Rights Commission. Rudd gave away millions in bribes to get the security council seat.

If a company does the same they are in court.

Yes more thoughtful voting is required, we need to move away from radicalism and get with the team that can turn us into a more prosperous nation.

We had a version of Austerity tried against us for no other reason than one mans ambition to be a dictator.

A dumbing down of society, now wages need to grow so we can again prosper. We do not need recessionary tactics, we need stimulus to bring back confidence and spending.

There is, its called a 'Coup D'etat' They are all the rage in places like Africa. Should General Brassbottom call upon himself, and his army mob, and determine that the elected mod have lied and defrauded. He could take over and appoint himself El Supremo for life.
Very progressive those Africans on that sort of thing.

Rolly, i dont think we need to put a complete stop to immigration at all, its just that at present we cant pay our own bills and look after whos here, so surely bringing more in is plain dumb. Balance the books first, then INVITE those who will be of benefit to us and who will contribute and not hold their hands out.

Doog, we went down the Kevin 07 experiment pathway and look what a mess that created. Surely you're not suggesting we do more of the same? Although part of me thinks we should allow labor back in so we can find rock bottom, because at least then the only way to go is up. We will also be forced to say no to a lot of things we are just incapable of now.

PAUL. Do you think foreign aid should be paid before our bills as it currently is, or after?
