A man with a plan…. thanks to Dhumme Dhimmi
Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has appointed Tony Burke as the nation’sÂ first population minister, amid growing concerns the number of Australians will rise to unsustainable levels.
Mr Burke will be responsible for drawing up a national population strategy and will retain his other portfolio of agriculture, fisheries and forestry.
So now Burke is the Minister for Cows, Fish, Trees and People. Who’ll get Insects? Maybe that responsibility will fall to the underemployed bureaucrats previously involved inÂ emissions trading.
Actually not. Just more spin and flip flop. He was for it before he was against it and visa versa….. No, the plan is not to stop the thousands of illegal welfare seekers who burn their boats on arrival in Australia, the plan is to appoint another bureaucrat to establish another bureaucracy.
Yes, the boats keep coming:Â Yet another, like never before and there are yet more asylum seekers on their way to the island, with a boat carrying 79 passengers and four crew “intercepted” on Friday.
KRudd flips on ‘big Australia’
THE federal government will consider slashing Australia’s annual migration intake to help tackle concerns about traffic congestion, housing, hospitals, water and the environment.
Just months after declaring himself in favour of a ”big Australia”, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd yesterday warned of ”legitimate concerns” with population growth and appointed Agriculture Minister Tony Burke as Australia’s first Population Minister.
Mr Burke has been given a year to develop the country’s first population plan, including a review of immigration levels.
The announcement came as another boatload of asylum seekers – the 102nd to be intercepted since Mr Rudd took office – was placed in detention at the Christmas Island facility, which has reportedly reached capacity.
Mr Rudd denied the new strategy was a smokescreen to divert attention from the recent boat arrivals, saying the idea for a population plan had come after ”extensive deliberations of the cabinet over the last month”. More
