    Stone the flamin' crows. That's enough to make a bloke do 'is block. No wonder the joints goin' down the gurgler.

    I can only assume that if a person decides to migrate to another country, in this case, Australia, then it is because they want come here. Just like the Greeks & The Poms & the Ity's & the Crauts, And all the other people that came here in the 50's & 60's. We called them New Australians then, but now, they are Australians. They showed us all the good things their culture had to offer, like Calamari & Yeros & Kababs, & we embraced them.

    & then in the 70's we had the Boat people, mainly from sout east Asia, & with them came more wonderful food, Salt & Peper Squid, Beef & Black bean sauce & sizzling steak to name just a couple.

    Most typical Aussies weren't too keen on all these new people coming to the country, but they worked very hard to learn our language, adopt our customes & become fellow Crow Eaters or Sand Gropers or what ever. These people brought all the good things their culture had to offer & left all or any of their crap behind. We had Poms & Germans working together & becoming mates when only a few short years before, they were shooting at each other. They did this without any government assistance programs or help. They did this because they wanted a new & better life in a new country. I personaly know a few that decided Australia wasn't for them, so they went back to their homeland, & a few of them returned & Stayed.

    So here is a a good idea & it cost nothing.

    If you want to come & live in, & be a part of the greatest country in the world bar none, then leave your #### at home come on over.

    But if you want us to change our beautiful country to be just like the war torn 3rd world #### hole you left, then pack your rags & #### off back there
    The fact remains, that 97% of all statistics are made up, yet 87% of the population think they are real.

    I doubt for one minute that this sort of thing comes from "New Australians", but from some from bureaucrats with fairy floss for brains. Like Ticky said, previous emigrants came out looking for a new life and had very little gov't assistance and got on pretty well. It's only when the government starts backing down to people who will never be happy, no matter where they live, that things turn to crap.

    Here we go again, beating up a bit of xenophobia before the election. Can't expect anything less from the Herald Sun who may as well be writing Tony Abbott's election speeches.

    If you look at the 9 facts sheets here: "Resources - Harmony in the Workplace - Delivering the Diversity Dividend - FECCA", there is nothing that states that we should refrain from using the above mentioned terminologies. They do use the terminology 'CALD' which is referenced in many Australian Government websites.

    Be careful what you read this election, this type of article is designed to whip up a bit of hysteria in an otherwise boring and listless election campaign

    Scott, surely you aren't implying that our beloved Rupert or his minions would be careless with the truth?

    Careless maybe? Economical, definitely.

    By the way, in the interests of being transparent, I'm not going to vote for Tony, he's mad as a cut snake. And, I'm not going to vote for Kevin either, he's too umm... not sure about him.

    Thanks Scott for posting the link relating to the article in the Herald Sun. I'm tempted to telephone the paper and ask Ms. Natasha Bita exactly where in the 9 fact sheets she got her information.




    Note:
    On second reading of the article it appears that there may be another document being referred to. I think this requires a little more research.

    In the interests of transparency, could you expand your statements of the two persons you allude to with some facts please.
