Big Australia back on the agenda, says Craig Emerson
Matthew Franklin, Chief political correspondent | The Australian | October 01, 2011
TRADE Minister Craig Emerson has reignited the Big Australia debate by insisting Australia must boost immigration levels to fully exploit its potential in the “Asian century”.
Skills shortage? Try getting training when you don’t meet particular politically correct criteria. For that matter, try obtaining gainful employment when you do have the training, skills and experience, but still fall short of that all invasive politically correct criteria. Is Trade Minister Craig Emerson talking about immigration or the justification of sustained and deliberate importation of the unwanted and untrainable? Labor had better raise the dole for the current batch of mainly European and all Indigenous Australians because we Australians don’t have a hope in hell retaining employment in Labor’s “Asian century.” Or as it should be called, the Slave Labour Century.
But wait, there’s more …
buy two Coolies for the cost of a single Aussie and they’ll chuck in a third for free. Leading of course to Labor’s next election slogan, “Cheaper By the Dozen!”
