There was this report in the papers today about this German doctor who settled down with his wife and kids in a rural area in Australia. He is the only Internist serving a population of 54,000 there. He's applied for permanent citizenship and the authorities have denied his 17 year old son citizenship because he has Down's and apparently that would place a burden on society to support him.

And bloody fair enough too. Why put this family through more crap? Here we have a doctor working in a rural setting (the only one in Horsham!), he wants to stay there, the community loves him and because his son has a Down Syndrome score in the 90's (1 = profound, 100 = very mild disability), they want to send him back! Horrible decision.
Only our best and brightest get to work in DIAC

Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.
Will refrain from comment, last time I chimed in on the topic of beheadings I got a life ban.
'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

Has there been a real change of policy since Rudd has been elected?
Cause wasn't it on his agenda to fix all this immigration **** up?
I hate this country's stance towards immigration and social security so very very much. Here's hoping that our current PM rights a few wrongs.
