Australia: one con job after another

Amanda Vanstone:

Gillard is a hater.

THE Gillard government white paper on Asia is a fraud. On every level, it is a con job. The government is having a lend of us. Its only admirable quality is its chutzpah.  —Meaningless promises, replete with pure spin  (Greg Sheridan)

Cultural Enrichment

Shias Flee Sunni Death Squads for Australia…

Somehow I don’t think we should trust  Condoleezza Rice on this one. In her infinite wisdom she said  Sunnis and  Shi’a “will just have to overcome” their ancient hatreds and learn to live together…..

I say its their problem. Let allah sort it out.

Dhimmitude on Steroids: No Christmas Wrappings For Diggers

“On the back of ‘no beer for Christmas’, it’s now no Christmas for Christmas.”

THE air force has taken political correctness to a ridiculous new level by warning staff against wrapping gifts for troops overseas in Christmas paper because of “cultural sensitivity”.

A flight lieutenant based at RAAF Base Pearce near Perth sent an email to staff and cadets encouraging them to send Christmas care packages to Australians deployed in the Middle East.   (Mullah)

Mamdouh hit the jackpot:

LAST December 17 in Sydney, officers representing the federal Attorney-General Robert McClelland signed a secret deal with former terror suspect Mamdouh Habib.

It featured an undisclosed compensation payout in return for Habib dropping his long-running civil suit claiming commonwealth complicity in his 2001 arrest, rendition, detention and “torture”  in Pakistan, Egypt and Guantanamo Bay.

Habib’s call for aid is denied

FORMER Guantanamo Bay detainee Mamdouh Habib has been denied help by the federal government in his bid to sue the Egyptian government over his detention and torture even though it has the documents that could clinch the legal case for him.

Mr Habib asked for evidence that could prove he had been held in Egypt after the country’s new government claimed he was never there.

Alien Policies

Who is running Tasmania?

And still they come, more than ever

Which brings us to nearly 2000 arrivals for the second month in a row:
