    Support for this, ****? Like I said, most extremism/potential for terrorism in just about every western country is with established communities or 2nd-gen migrants but we've also got legal Irish migrants working illegally (and being exploited) on construction projects in Adelaide, for example.

    Rudd's public prediction of conflict over the Coalition's policy appear to be correct.

To then portray the reaction as racist and a contrast to their own moral and ideological purity and their infallible proscriptions based on them. Border protection is a responsibility of govt. They prosecute any violation. Stopping the boats is necessarily one those violations they deal with. The media and public focus on boat people is a disproportionate attention on just one responsibility of govt and for the self serving reasons described earlier..


    Poor Tony Abbott was forced to catchphrase "stop the boats" by the damn media and refugee advocacy groups.

    Why I?m glad Derryn Hinch is going to prison | Here is your mind

    Tend to be on the side of this. If Hincheh was really all about the victims, he'd realise what potential harm he's doing them by acting the way he is. Nothing but a glory hound and probably pathological.

    Hinch is/was a very good journalist who identified the path to money/fame years ago

    Product of the industry I'm afraid

    He can be whatever he wants but if he pulls **** like this, there should be consequences commensurate with the damage he could (potentially/likely) cause, possibly a mistrial and huge cost to the state in Police and prosecutor wages and resources in running the file. **** Hinch and his grandstanding ilk.

    Well there's an argument to say that it is. Not that I agree with the principle.
