KRudd Watch

Andrew Bolt

What a disgace that this should be necessary:

THE screening of an Israeli film in Parliament House has been postponed amid heightened tensions between Australia and Israel. How could that friendship be dropped so fast?

Meanwhile, the boats keep coming:

Last year it was 60 boats, so Kevin Rudd’s on the way to a personal best:

The Federal Government says a boat carrying 47 asylum seekers has been intercepted in Australia’s northern waters.

Christmas for do gooders:

KRudd has lured over so many boat people that the locals at Christmas Island are being squeezed:

IT is not the influx of asylum-seekers on Christmas Island that Andrew Gooley has grown to resent. Rather, it’s the cashed-up immigration workers who squeeze themselves on to the tiny Australian territory and push up costs.

Kevin Rudd has lured over so many boat people that the locals at Christmas Island are being squeezed: Not Christmas for the islanders

As long as they got a mosque they should be alright, no?

Who asked them to come?

Another $7.5 million boat

Here we go again:

A BOAT carrying 194 people, the largest number in eight years, has been intercepted by border protection 23 nautical miles north-west of Christmas Island…

Update:

Some may die and all will cost

We may soon be back to where we were before John Howard got tough:

INDONESIAN authorities are bracing for a huge influx of boat people, anticipating as many as 10,000 asylum-seekers are waiting in Malaysia to transit through the archipelago and on to Australia.

This estimate was backed by a Malaysian group that deals with unauthorised immigrants. An Australian Government source warned of the potential for a similar influx to the thousands who began arriving in Australia from the late 1990s.

Another $7.5 million boat

On board were mostly men, understood to be of Afghan or Iraqi descent, who are now being processed on Christmas Island in immigration detention…

It is the 16th boat to arrive in Australian waters this year — during which 867 people have been intercepted by border protection. Arrivals this year are up from the 161 asylum seekers who came by boat last year, but well down on the 5516 people who arrived in 2001.

Do the sums:

(N)ew figures reveal the cost of processing the latest influx of boatpeople is about $38,000 an asylum seeker.

Men of Spin or spinning KRudd?

The KRudd government’s spin is being exposed: the spin-meister in chief, the man behind ‘Global warming, climate change,  United Nations, International law, International treaties,  IMF”  etc.  is becoming undone: the KRudd Government’s spin is being exposed. What else won’t they tell you?

That the country is broke, and they do not have a clue about ANYTHING that matters?

What did the PM know and when did he know it?

The ABC backs up a claim initially denied by the Rudd Government:

The ABC also understands the Federal Government received advice from the Australian Federal Police that Labor’s policies on border protection and refugees would lead to more boat arrivals.

But (Foreign Affairs Minister Stephen) Smith refused to be drawn on whether the AFP had advised the Labor Government that its policies could lead to a surge.
