Tent City for Christmas Island

Posted on: December 10, 2009

A tent city is proposed to cope with the numbers at Christmas Island and Sarah Hanson Young of the Greens wants to bring the detainees to Australia, (ABC News,today) Well, I have this to say to her and the Greens again.

The numbers of boat people are not all refugees, most are running away from dysfunctional regimes instead if fixing it there and expecting Australia to do so, $30 million to Sri Lanka and blood in Iraq and Afghanistan. It is a serious development that requires a serious consideration of the issues instead of the rhetoric and blame game of the Greens. Firstly, the humanitarian response to genuine refugees, and I emphasise the genuine refugees without any other qualification.

Secondly, the National interests. and again, I challenge Sarah Hanson Young to tell me if her current announcements are in the National interest and whether she herself, as an elected Senator know what those interests are.In the meantime I would tell her this…..

“We are a compassionate nation. Australia broadcasts its image to the World and we have made it too attractive for both extremes to ignore. One would love the promise of peace and plenty and the other would love to destroy it and they are very closely related. One has already been jailed for 9 years for an evil intent The Immigration Minister,. Mr. Evans will not be diverted by you or the Greens. As the Minister, his first responsibility is to the Nation and while any compliance with treaties for immigration are clear, they should be enforced and the claim jumpers returned, in cuffs if necessary.

But families with children remain the best outcome for compliance with Treaties and integration that ultimately leads to harmony and a reduction of social prejudice. As Immigration Mr. Evans knows this and so does Sharman Stone of the Opposition and that should never be compromised by fit young men in boats,or indeed, those elected into positions of power who have neither life experience or the talent to exercise it.
