Hi Josephus,

I'm not sure how popular is Tu Le in the electorate
and how large is the Vietnamese population there,
and whether she has enough votes to win. The same
applies to Kristina Keneally's chances in that electorate -
how well known is she there and can she swing the votes
in her own direction?

I guess we shall have to wait and see what risks Labor is
willing to take there. It's a safe seat for now - but will
this continue to be the case - if the candidate they chose
is not acceptable to the majority.

If Hayes truly believed that the electorate needed a foreigner representing it, he would have stood down at the last election.

Only 23% of the electorate is Vietnamese, and while it is one of the most diverse electorates, the majority, 64%, is still True Blue Aussie. And they will have a foreigner for their PM, anyway, if Ms. America gets in, as she is bound to. Multiculturalism will be the death of Australia.

Kristina Keneally has an American father and an
Australian mother. She married an Australian,
settled in Australia permanently and became a
citizen in 2000.

I guess we can't really criticize her on her
background. The Scanlon Foundation conducted a
national survey that found Australians identify
with more than 270 ancestries. That one in four
of Australia's people have been born overseas
and approx. 46% had at least one parent who was
born overseas.

Most new migrants apparently say they feel a strong
sense of belonging to Australia and that this feeling
deepens over time.

The national survey found that 84% of respondents
agree that multiculturalism has been good for Australia
but only if people who immigrate here adopt "Australian"
values and integrate.

The report also found "substantial" negative sentiment
towards people from Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.
Intolerance towards Muslims is still far higher than
people who follow any other religion.

It would be interesting to see how many (of Foxy's) immigrant parents came from the British Isles. Either way the immigration policy is racism against the British Australians. Even if they didn't fight the policy (and it's always been contentious) it still dilutes their franchise- hence being against their interest- but democracy sort of allows acts against our interest if we are stupid enough to support them. Don't think it satisfies the mandate test though. I couldn't see a time when I will ever support the suicide or the murder of my people.
The principle of separation of church and state appears to have come about under a specific set of circumstances- apparently where one people of the same ethnicity started to move in a slightly different direction to the Catholic church- and the creation of the protestant movement. One could argue that small revolutions could be healthy to balance the ruling traditional elites views on government and stability with that of the peasants or masses.
The contemporary changes are different and in a sense more chaotic and harmful.

Good on you Foxy.

I hope your no reaction stays that way.

Personally I found some of the anti virals I wanted ex India.

Dear Hassie,

I hope it stays that way as well and I'm glad
that you've managed to find what you wanted.
I was quite concerned about you. But all's well that
ends well.

Take care.
Stay safe.
