Yes, I think you a right. Krudd would be sucking up to them like mad, trying to secure some creamy job in the UN, Tony, I think, couldn't care less about the UN

How about this.

Tony turns round to the UN, says "look, you have two choices.
We make a quick assessment now and send them back to S/L to
live and open or free life or we send them to XYZ island and lock
them up for 2 - 3 years and I mean lock them up and then make
the same assessment
and send them back to S/L."

"The assessment is NOT going to change so they either miss out
on 2 - 3 years of their life or they don't."

That would put the wind up the UN.

The reason this stuff makes me cross is this. I have a son with an intellectual disability. Thanks to a hell of a lot of hard work by his mum ( my darling wife), he is fairly high functioning and independent.

He has been assessed as been eligible for independent living, but government provided places are very thin on the ground due to lack of funding. He gets a disability allowance from Centrelink of $410 a fortnight. The only way he can live independently, and have a somewhat 'normal' life, is if we pay for it...which we do.

If I stuck him on a bloody boat, and dressed him up as an Sri Lankan country shopper, if Sarah Two Dads had her way, or Juliar for that matter, he would probably be better off.

I can understand. My mother teaches Special education in that and other fields
and is always complaining about the lack of Gov't funding.

I think that whole issue, why doesn't the Gov't spend more money in Aus
than on these "shoppers" is one of the main reasons the country turned
from being left to being right (when it came to shoppers, not immigrants
or AS in general).

Regarding the Sri Lankan (Tamil) country shoppers: I read somewhere yesterday , possibly on the Piers Ackerman site, that one of the captains of these boats is said to have done the trip nine (!) times. He says he's a passenger, volunteers to go home, takes the $3000 and then skippers the next boat out.

Now I find this a little hard to believe, (you'd think there'd be fingerprinting or some sort of ID checking done on these 'volunteer returnees'), but the fact that someone's alleging it gives some idea of what a dog's breakfast the whole sorry exercise was under Labor.

Nine times $3000 would allow a very comfortable life in Sri Lanka.

Shut the office in Canberra of the UNHCR, send those oxygen thieves back to where ever they are from
I think you'll find that all the staff of that office are lefty time-servers who have probably had an Aussie passport since birth.

Nice to be back (both in Oz and from my ban as a result of pulling a thread in Cabin Crew!)

WB Sisemen. I realise they are probably Australian, so just do part one of the plan. Close the office.

And if you can't close the office, just fcking ignore them,
don't take phone calls from them, don't meet with them,
don't give them access to anything, just send "them to
coventry" as we used to say in the UK.

They will soon get the message that the rules have changed.

The story of the Italian AS drowings came on the news tonight,
the second boat and of course they mentioned the first one from
last week.

My GF said WTF are they suddenly putting these stories on our news ?

I said that since our AS problem had quietened down and no
great numbers of arrivals, boat sinkings or drownings, then
they need something else to maintain the "guilt" factor.

Anyone else noticed it ?


(When I met my GF she was a lefty thinking person but have
converted her to a right thinking person. Still got a way to go
but we are getting there . That's one teacher converted ).

I know it's in the UK, but it goes to show, it's ok for the Greenies when it's suits them. It's just not ok for the rest of us.

The report might have been critical of a moderator's actions of a previous post.
You'd think he'd have known better.

Watch out, the 5th column is also about, again.
Rats in the ranks as they say !

To identify, look for the "white flag"

It is understood that Sisemen may well have penned a letter to Internet Brands

Did he scream "Banzai!" before hitting send?

Yes, exactly.

Running off to the mods being one of the most low acts that
seems to occur on here from time to time.

...an act that, from my experience here, usually comes from - (to borrow a common phrase) - "out of left field".

Oi, I resemble that remark!

I see Mr Slippa is miffed about 'double standards' regarding expense claims. The kitchen pots and kettles are getting a good rattling.

It wasn't directed at you

Similar name to a very senior person related to flying
on an Aircraft carrier

Add that to the white flag for his location and you will
work out which part of Europe he is from !


Scum buckets all of them.
