Well since Keating introduced compolsory superanuation pensioners in the future will be mostly self supporting, unemployed scumbag = bludger.

Eg out of all refugees from Iraq 95% are still unemployed after 5 yers in Australia = bludgers

This reminds me of the resentment in the US over immigrants. I always liked this poster of an American Indian with the caption ... "I support immigration reform. When you leaving?" :-)

So what?
Do you have any children?
If so you probably get centrelink payments as well
There are many forms of Govt assistance that get paid via centrelink and really, what % of the population are these refugees anyway?
Quick calculation shows that they are around 0.01% of the population, scary stuff eh?
Family payments and allowances - australia.gov.au

As for the Nationalities I wonder why the Afghanis and Iraqi's are being singled out by the poster?

Figures for 2010-2011 show that there were 1390 Afghanis and 370 Iraqis out of 5000 protection Visas issued.

What about the other 3240 from other nationalities, do they get the same derision aimed at them?
http://www.immi.gov.au/media/publica...arter-2012.pdf

What about the other 58,000 illegal immigrants that are here
Will the poster make comment on these hoards of US and British (amongst others) "illegals" that are here or are they somehow different?

Quote:
Figures obtained from the Immigration Department and under the Freedom of Information Act show plane arrivals from the United States (5080) and Britain (3610) are near the top of the list of those in the country without a valid visa. China (8070), and Malaysia (4200) round out the top four.

I am sure our Australian Aboriginals would agree

Immigration made this country great, may there be MUCH more of it.

Re: I've had enough!

High personal and sales taxes result in a very large underground market. You can live & work black as much as possible. Of course, that's what got Greece, Italy and Spain into their current situation.

Re: I've had enough!

Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's...

Let's not compare lifestyles on the basis of luxury purchases of entertainment electronics, fags and booze (duty free or not), premium boaty bits like factory made bermuda rigs, etc. Or quality of life dependent on municipal supply of power and water, or security based on social "security" payments.

And pensions.....my generation had better wake up that by the time we're eligible to collect our superannuation, it won't be there.

Thailand seems to be the most promising choice for western rats fleeing the sinking ships of state. It was never conquered by western colonial/industrial bankster interests, and the philosophy of their Monarch is most unusual indeed. Hence the attemps by the globalist oligarchs to install their captive lackey...Shinawatra. I'll trade the dubious prosperity of Aus or the Eu for Thailand anytime I can; less government "support" programs also means less interference and mooching, and therefore more opportunity to see to those things myself. I'd rather deal with my neighbours and locals than a faceless beaureacracy stuffed with ideologues and parasites. Bill, you're on the right track, something definitely stinks.

Please don't come to SEA. I have lived here 32 years and I can tell you it is horrible.

Stay where you are and do all the bitching and moaning you like.

SEA is corrupt, expensive, has weird food, pirates, crimnals etc., etc. etc...

Trust me. You won't like it. Stay there...
