Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.


This little boy’s mother and his older brother who also drowned were genuine refugees and they were just three of a 500,000 humanitarian tragedy in northern Syria where ISIS is on one side and Assad the other... does Obama still sleep well? You bet he does. Yet it was he who encouraged the Arab Spring uprisings and then walked away with no thought for the consequences.

There were lots of other little boys, just like this one, who were part of the 1200 who drowned trying to get to Australia but we never got a defining photo like this one, only unemotional tallies... does Kevin Rudd still sleep well? You bet he does. Yet it was he who opened our borders allowing people smugglers their trade in death.

It will take a photo like this to jolt liberal European politicians from their warm beds with their lofty ideals of non-existent borders and one currency.

And how is Obama’s open borders policy going now that 11 million unknowns have settled in the south? Oh that’s right, Uncle Donald is going to deport them all and insist the Mexicans build a wall. Crumbs, can you be that rich and that stupid at the same time?

What Australia’s dumb Left don’t seem to understand is that now the boats have stopped we can assist those genuine refugees from Syria and northern Africa... they can arrive here in 747s rather than in unsafe fishing boats. We are now back in charge of our own immigration program.

Angela Merkel can afford to take the 800,000 she plans to, after all Germany’s 60 million had no problem annexing 16 million from the Eastern bloc after the fall of the wall.

But the smaller nations are struggling because Europe is borderless and the choice, once there, is the refugee’s... but who is a genuine refugee?

Those from Kabul, Teheran and Baghdad are mostly economic, well-heeled country shoppers who take the places of genuine refugees. And where are the rich Gulf States of Obama's coalition when needed? Busy supporting a new wave of terrorists?

We are starting to see the redefining of European nations. The Euro concept was flawed from the start and people want their borders, their nationalities and their economies back.

The first leg in the plan for a one world government is coming apart at the seams. Borders are about to become sovereign again.

But it’s all too late for this little boy.
