Australia: compo for unwanted welfare seekers

They risk their lives (and the lives of others) to get here, then sue over injuries received after they’ve arrived:

Dozens of asylum-seekers have received a total of $5.4 million in compensation payouts from taxpayers for injuries they suffered while in detention.

They risk their lives (and the lives of others) to get here, then sue over injuries received after they’ve arrived:

Dozens of asylum-seekers have received a total of $5.4 million in compensation payouts from taxpayers for injuries they suffered while in detention.

Official figures obtained by News Ltd reveal that more than 50 immigration detainees have pocketedan average of $100,000 each over the past two years.

News Ltd says the federal government has refused to detail the reasons for the multi-million-dollar payouts to detainees, saying only they were related to wrongful detention or injuries suffered in detention.

It must be part of the government’s ingenious plan to repel would-be asylum seekers and end the trade in people smuggling. Which is just going brilliantly:

In September, Australia’s detention population included 4527 people who had arrived illegally by boat.

This compares to just four people in November, 2007. Under Labor, the number of those held in detention centres has increased by – wait for it – 113,075 per cent. So much for Rudd’s pre-election boast that he would turn them back.

While the federal government is handing out millions to accident-prone boaties, another Australian government isclosing down a productive farm. Do hit that last link. Greens are involved.    (9NEWS/thanks to Rossco)

  1. I recon that 150 thousand would get me a little 2 bedroom home in the country. I would move there. The elderley cannot get a roof over their heads. cant get into nursing homes. cant get into hospital to have vital surgury. My doctor told me yesterday he has patients who will lose a leg because they cannot get the operation done. Yet we can affort to bring these strangers into our midst. something is very wrong Australia.

  2. Personally, I’m sick to death of these mongrels trying to hold us to ransom (and doing it nicely with the Governments assistance).

    A friend of mine was on the Patrol Boat that they blew up (an act of terrorism, on Australian service personnel, in Australian waters…) He received injuries, a gag order not to discuss details and his normal pay (which is lousy, considering what they have to put up with). Apparently, those same perpetrators were fast tracked through the visa system and let loose on the community.

    With all the riots and protests these idiots stage – basically crapping on the hand they want to feed them – why has no one has bothered to look at the basic premise of their character… These people bring their violent, aggressive hate filled bodies here illegally, beat the crap out of each other while in detention (because that’s how they are used to behaving) and then some Australian Do-Gooder Solicitor tells them they can be compensated for their troubles!

    If I wasn’t so appalled and frightened for the future, I’d say we deserve it – Political Correctness is going to kill this country, and we will have no one to blame but ourselves for keeping politicians who refuse to listen to the very people they are supposed to represent.

    Even trying to defend myself from being called a “racist” is becoming increasingly difficult – no one seems to grasp the idea that Islam is not a race, but an ideology/cult. *Sigh*
