Today Farage made a big speech on immigration clling for us to adopt Australian immigration rules in the UK. I agree we should but its not just Oz rules we need its their political leaders honesty and support of robust enforcement of their very sensible rules. let us start by listening to Farage,
Now read Julia Gillard's speech on Muslim immigrants in Oz
Gillard is herself an immigrant from Wales who created quite a stir when she marrried her hairdresser.
Here is an alternative report on her views
Note how she explicitly mentiond the perfect right of Oz security to monitor the activities of these immigrants when they are perceived as a threat to the Oz way of life.
Another Oz PM, John Howard, has similar views trenchantly expressed below,
I visited Australia 5 years ago when Gillard made that speech. Oz is in many ways similar to the UK I grew up in during the 1950s. Their border controls are very tight, in and out, and rigorously enforced. They welcome immigrants who are prepared to sign up to the Australian way of life. They invite Muslims who want to live under Sharia Law to go back where they came from with the phrase, "We did not ask you to come and you are always free to leave to go to your Islamic paradise". In many Muslim countries a woman needs the written permisssion of her husband to leave the country!
The latest Oz PM Rudd makes it clear its Muslim Terrorists they are targetting. This has met with the usual Muslim response of a witchunt but the Aussies are not as soft as we are and they are not giving any credance to these Terrorist apologists as our C4 does incessently.
So Mr Farage changing the rules is fine but its enforcing the rules thats difficult. Let us hear what Farage has to say on that..
