And there we have the problem Hempy. Come and embrace our culture, work hard to improve your life......or....come a sponge of the rest of us, expect us to change to your rules, and in some cases, plot to kill us all.

Just playing Iblis advocate here, but how do you think your neighbour would react if his wife had chosen not to wear the hijab?

It's a question I can't answer without asking him. She seems to 'wear the pants' in the relationship anyway, tbh, so I guess the answer would be 'tough titties'..

......or....come a sponge of the rest of us, expect us to change to your rules, and in some cases, plot to kill us all.
I'd love to see the REAL figures on those types, not the ones Andrew Bolt or Tony Abbbott (or, by proxy, the US of A) would have you believe..

edit: You are more likely to die falling off a ladder while pruning a lemon tree than you are to get killed by a 'muslim terrorist' in this country. Apologies if I don't fall for the 'we need an enemy' to justify the hype.

Hempy - it's not the individual. We can all quote instances of both good and bad and I suspect that very few of us on here have any quarrel with those who genuinely want to make a go of it in this country, put their barrow down, and attempt to assimilate.

However, and it's a big 'however', the system which the Muslims have a fervent belief in and, more importantly, practise predicates those things mentioned in my previous post. The individual may not personally subscribe to that extremism but they belong to a congregation which regards speaking out against those teachings as apostasy. And the outcome of that within that community is well evidenced.

Until such times as adherents to the Muslim religion can rise above that kind of rubbish then the host nation faces a problem. Unfortunately they keep such a tight rein on people, and their offspring, that it is going to take a considerable time until they are fully accepted into the Australian community unlike previous waves of immigration which have readily adapted to their host country (and in this I except the immigrant British militant trade unionists who appear to have learnt nothing!)

The effect on Europe, unless they do something to stem the tide is going to be much, much worse than we can ever imagine.

And here was me thinking that we are all 'individuals'. My bad, obviously.

Ah yes!
We're ALL individuals! (Now, where did I hear that line before?)
... 'cept them. They're not!

I wish Al Grassby was still around - I've a couple of questions for him.

Yet another arrest of another ‘extremist’ planning a terrorist attack
I’m sure we can expect the usual platitudes from the Islamic apologist brigade and the usual ‘explanation’ from a ‘cleric’ which will morph into a rant about how Australian society and the government ‘alienated’ and ‘marginalized’ the poor young bloke.
There’s a box in the article I have provided a link to that says they will not state (among other things) religion. But the article does say the lad became ‘very religious, conservative’. Hmmmm... wonder if that means a very religious and conservative Catholic, Protestant, Hindu or Buddhist? Can’t upset ‘you know who’ now can we? Seems the concept of freedom of speech only applies in one direction in this country.
And well done to the AFP and VICPOL.

Riots in the UK because the Conservatives were re-elected! “Rigged election” and similar are the main comments on the ABC farce book page.

That just goes to show the fair and democratic face of socialism - as many of us have been saying on here for years!

I saw that. Completely ridiculous and a bad case of sour grapes. If you need to riot to prove a political point then you're not fit to be in politics.

CSD, maybe he was a militant Pastafarian...if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's probably a duck. Just looking at that article, and the blue box lists 'political beliefs' rather than religion. Have they edited it?
And yes, well done (again) to the coppers.

It seems that he was an attendee at the local mosque so I suppose that makes him a Rastafarian.

SOPS; What was the bearded one's reaction to your no doubt 'polite' rejoinder to his request/demand that you shift?

After he worked out I wasn't going anywhere. He took said wife and went away. I don't think he liked my overly polite answer to his request.

On another note. It is no secret to the regulars on here that my sister is far left of the most leftist lefty.

She is in shock at the outcome of the UK election. She cannot understand how anyone could possibly vote for those nasty Tories.

As for her shock at my response to the person mentioned above, let's just not go there.

At a guess; Her jaw dropped and she was totally speechless for about 15 seconds.

At about 10 seconds her mouth started moving but no intelligible sounds emanated therefrom.

Somewhere around the 20 second mark she started frothing at the mouth and shortly thereafter you were soundly verbally abused. The term 'racist' would have been one of the main words used, I should suspect.

Am I anywhere near the mark?

I have a Lefty brother. He was OK when we were growing up together, but he had a girlfriend who wore patuli oil, and I think that did for him. He admires Russell Brand.

Anyway, he too is shocked by what happened in Britain.

I suspect that the volume of the voices of the Left belies their actual numbers. Sure, the media (generally a bit Left of centre) thought it had to be close, as did Twitter and the blogs that the Left reads. A false impression was created and maintained in the minds of the believers.

However, a large number of normal people who don't shout and carry on about politics all the time voted for the sensible party (the Conservatives, that is ). QED.

RJM, it's an unfortunate fact that the same argument could be applied to most of us here. Too many who post here forget that there are millions out there who are not of like mind to us but who vote.

Tee hee. I know a couple of those (both Greens voters) and keeping a straight face is very hard . 'Too bad, they lost, guess people thought they sucked' is seen as unsympathetic, so I've stuck with the polite side-step of claiming not to follow UK politics.
Of course neither of them has spent more than about a week in the UK, but both profess to be instant experts wrt British politics.

That is my experience with most far left voters, ( my sister included), they are experts on everything, and I mean everything. And they alone, know what is best for everyone.
