We noted Dick Smith a popular millionaire adventurer here on abc 702 radio this morning: We wrote on a crikey.com.au string similarly (after) earlier today re Indian folks here copping a crime backlash, or so it appears.
The lunar right have got a run up on white power nostalgia because our immigration policy lacks integrity - it’s a big business racket to ensure structural shortage of rental property and structural unemployment. Causing all kinds of low level insurrection now including the crime statistics.
It’s not the immigrants as individuals the racists should be worried about, these students etc being innocent pawns in a money/donor politics dynamic, but the grossly excessive immigration policy of both major parties, combined with stingy humanitarian intake.
Dick Smith outlined the situation, close to my analysis above (though he mentioned environmental unsustainability, not big business rackets) on abc 702 radio this morning 25 January 2009 - a line I’ve been explaining for a while now, all absent the racist streak.
What’s the bet decouple the developer donor funding model from major parties, and the high immigration policy evaporates, as do the racist white power crime frictions and pravalence?
Keepin in mind that Harry Triguboff (Meriton Apartments), Frank Lowy (Westfield shopping malls) who strongly advocate about 100 million population level for Australia. Meanwhile Dick Smith suggests 9 out of 10 people think a 35M population for Australia by 2050 is "too much".
