Agree. Being concerned about immigration makes the neurotic woke afraid of being called racist. But it’s sensible especially now For god sake listen to the Australian people! Help the Australian people granting citizenship should be like bloody hens teeth they should only receive residency. It’s not a free for all our social security system. Wake up that’s why they want to come here! Just Stop!!!

Whatever the bigwigs think, Keneally will get electoral support for this stance. The biggest crime against Australia's ordinary folk is that rental housing is fully occupied by new arrivals on a plethora of industrial visas (immigrant, work, study) -the main cause of homelessness PaulineHansonOz Too much migration ruining the social consensus that we've had for decades 'Balkanising' our society into separate silos with little in common. But mass unemployment will put an end to uncontrolled migration - the community won't stand for more migrants with 3 million out of work

The ' immigration' word is not the issue the 'quality Immigrants' is the issue. Sure. you dont wish harm to those refugees who wishes to come from WAR turn countries. Same time YOU dont want Australia ruied too. PaulineHansonOz You wouda thought someone in govt might have asked wotif when you're running a massive immigration program and a massive welfare program; i.e., wotif we get, for some reason or other, massive unemployment?

Wasn’t Bolt found in breach of the racial discrimination act? Might take this with some enormous, tolerant grains of salt PaulineHansonOz Yes and it’s ALL about divide and rule ! The globalists know people are naturally tribal. It’s not about hating anyone , it’s wanting to be with your own extended family. Harmony and love 💓

What about franking credits?

Kristina Keneally 'completely inconsistent on migration calls' | Sky News AustraliaPopulation Minister Alan Tudge says Labor frontbencher Kristina Keneally 'is completely inconsistent from one day to the next' in her position on immigration. \n\nMs Keneally has recently written an op-ed in the Nine newspapers arguing that migration cannot remain at the same levels post-pandemic.\n\nSenator Keneally said Australia could be 'harmed' by an influx of temporary workers when restrictions are eased.\n\n“We must make sure that Australians get a fair go and a first go at jobs,” Senator Keneally wrote. \n\nThe statements have been criticised by some of those in the media and political left as well as her opponents. \n\n'I’m not quite sure what the Labor position is on migration,' Mr Tudge told Sky News host Peta Credlin. \n\n'She said one thing but half the shadow cabinet is saying another thing'. \n\n'She’s not across the detail and certainly has a very divided party on the issue,' he said. \n\nImage: Getty \n \n\n OK we won't vote Labor 😂 And doesn’t have the support of about 95% of Labor members. No More Immigrants until our children all have jobs. Even the dumbest politician should understand this.

So he's an economist now. PaulineHansonOz Migrants create jobs building houses for more migrants and jobs building more infrastructure clogged by migrants. PaulineHansonOz This country needs to fix so many things, and it starts by looking after it’s own Ohhh...now we are going to blame migration are we?...one minor thing....its migration that made this country the lucky country in the world...! 🤦‍♂️

Nor allow climate alarmists to prevent Australia getting back to cheap energy using our gas, coal and uranium resources. Jobs for our children must come as the first priority. PaulineHansonOz The beneficiaries of Australias immigration program are the immigrants and the overpopulated countries that are happy to see them leave.

PaulineHansonOz Australia is just the UK with sunshine. They are culturally identical and share an historical link that connects the two peoples. A pivot away from Asia is in her long term best interests. PaulineHansonOz We also don’t need the old idiots of the past. Like Bolt. PaulineHansonOz Open the flood gates. It’s time to make Australia just like England. Full of ghettos and no social cohesion because we need money for our economy ASAP!

South Australia appoints committee to navigate exit strategy | Sky News AustraliaSouth Australia has appointed a transition committee to navigate the state’s exit from the coronavirus emergency.\n\nThe committee is made up of the police commissioner, the chief public health officer, and the chief executives of the premier, health, treasury and trade departments.\n\nPremier Steven Marshall said the exit plan will come by the end of the week as some restrictions could be lifted as soon as Friday. Yes throw more money around that you don’t have No Govt then in Australia either.

Is Andrew Bolt a middle child and did he get enough attention as a child? And we can’t afford the idiots from Sky. Need to start deporting people like Bolt. Absolutely its a Chinese and Indian ponzi scheme, absolute disgrace how they are taking advantage and flooding in. Take note Australia & USA.

Australia pledges $350 million toward global COVID-19 vaccine fund | Sky News AustraliaThe federal government has announced it will contribute $350 million toward COVID-19 vaccine research and development as part of a $12 billion pledge to the cause.\n\nAustralia has joined a number of other countries – including Japan, Italy and Canada – in the move, while the United States has refused to contribute. \n\nImage: Getty I won't take a vaccine!! I hope it wont be mandatory What so they can put more animal tissue in it? To see how much gain of function and more lethal they can make it? We are proud Aus govt but it is peanuts 🥜 - Wipro founder Premji donated 150M and that is a single company.

Easy said then done but Australian government needs to install more jobs in this country. Also we need high skilled Australians ie engineers , IT specialists to create our own silicon valley our own technological advancements I’ve always been told by Australians that Australians are lazy and don’t want to work. Is that why you have so many immigrant workers?

We cant have debates without being labelled racist. NZ lowered immigration numbers years ago to protect their locals from sharply rising real estate and a dramatic shift in culture yet we are racist.. True

Trans-Tasman travel bubble 'has an enormous amount going for it' | Sky News AustraliaTourism and Transport Forum CEO Margy Osmond says the idea of a trans-Tasman travel bubble “has an enormous amount going for it”. \n\nA trans-Tasman bubble allowing Australians and Kiwis to travel between countries will be on the agenda when New Zealand's Prime Minister joins today's national cabinet teleconference.\n\nThe Tourism and Transport Forum CEO told Sky News there was an enormous amount of work being done to facilitate the plan. \n\n“I think it’s important to understand that New Zealand is still our second biggest market, in fact it’s only in the last 12 to 18 months that China beat New Zealand as being our biggest group of inbound,” Ms Osmond said. \n\nMs Osmond said it was especially important following a horror year for the industry which was already devastated by the bushfires. \n\n“Essentially from the tourism industry’s perspective, we’ve had the ultimate perfect storm, the double whammy to end them all,” she said. No. Its opening up the back door round Australia's borders. NZ is already hiding illegal immigrants. E.g Behrouz Boochani.

Govt 'emotionally blackmailing' Australians to download CovidSafe app | Sky News AustraliaMany Australians have not taken kindly to the government's 'disgusting and demeaning' messaging on its CovidSAFE app, according to Sky News contributor Daisy Cousens.\n\nUsing Bluetooth, the app traces prolonged contact of other users within range for 21 days allowing health authorities to quickly contact people who have been in contact with someone who tests positive for coronavirus.\n\nThe government argues this process will streamline the process of finding contacts who have been exposed to the coronavirus, reducing the time the disease has to spread throughout the community.\n\nPrime Minister Scott Morrison has previously suggested the app needs at least 40 per cent community buy-in for it to be effective and has ruled out making the service mandatory.\n\nHowever, the government has been increasingly linking the lifting of stringent COVID-19 restrictions to the number of Australians who download the app, with Health Minister Greg Hunt tweeting last week: 'Want to go to the footy? Download the app.'\n\nMs Cousens told Sky News the government is attempting to 'emotionally blackmail' Australians.\n\n'Australians are being emotionally blackmailed into allowing the government to trace their contacts, which is a massive deal ... on pain on being effective house arrest,' she said.\n\n'I would actually respect the government more if they bit the bullet and made it mandatory, then at least they would be honest in their intentions.'\n\nImage: Getty They have similar app in India and its useful to track corona cases near you. It’s your right to say no. We won’t be blackmailed!
