38,000 citizens still can’t come home. Yet in 2020-21, the government managed to bring in 60,000 immigrants.
The reason Australians can’t come home is that, unlike most comparable countries, the airlines cannot function normally because of a draconian travel ban.
The ban was imposed under a power in the Biosecurity Act ‘to prevent or control the spread’ of the virus ‘to another country’ . While Minister Hunt could have quite properly required people departing be tested for the Wuhan or as Beijing prefers, the COVID_19 virus , this certainly did not authorise him to impose the current draconian travel ban administered by some faceless bureaucrat.
In fact, a vast part of the so-called ‘laws’ churned out by the stroke of a ministerial pen in each of the capitals are as unlawful as the shocking assaults on innocent Melbournians shamefully beamed around the world.
All these will in due course be shown to be beyond power, but the delinquent politicians will not pay; as taxpayers, you will.
In any event filling the immigration target (with those from China leading) was a ‘strong achievement’, at least according to Minister Alex Hawke.
Because of the Wuhan virus, there weren’t enough skilled immigrants.
So they filled up the 160,000 target with ‘family’ immigrants. Whether this means they they went down the list to bring in great-aunts, is not clear.
Then there was the problem that over 100,000 of these immigrants were here already. But they weren’t actually labelled ‘immigrants’. Moving names from one list to another is surely a daunting exercise.
The really ‘strong achievement’ was in bringing in 60,000 migrants when 38,000 Aussies could not get back. This demanded a dramatic reversal of priorities. But our politicians have become used to this.
Another ‘strong achievement’ of which they must be proud has been to make us pay twice what Americans pay for electricity because of the demands not only of the UN but also a particularly cranky Swedish schoolgirl.
This is based on what a leading expert academic Professor Ian Plimer says is the ‘biggest scientific fraud that has even occurred.’
