FINDING A SPARE QUID FOR OUR DIGGERS

... here's a few ideas

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.

BLOG / FACEBOOK



There are no fewer than 16 influential Islamic organisations in Australia, including Hizb ut-Tahrir, and there are countless thriving sub Islamic groups in business for some very odd reasons and with some very questionable motives. All receive Government funding. 

All Islamic schools also receive Government funding which somehow finds its way into the coffers of the “Australian Federation of Islamic Councils”.

The AFIC is the purse holder and governing body for all things Islamic in Australia.

Since 2010 at least seven major Islamic schools have had their funds temporarily frozen because of “serious irregularities” in financial accounting. Many more are under ASIC investigation where millions in taxpayer funds have simply gone missing without record. 

Sydney's largest Muslim school, Malek Fahd, was found to have funnelled back into the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils almost $9 million in school funding. This “accounting” fraud appears to be a common practice in Islamic schools across the country involving hundreds of millions of dollars.

The Government has in most cases decided not to lay charges but merely requests that Islamic leaders promise the defrauded amounts will be repaid in future and in return the funds are immediately unfrozen. 

If the Government does decide to continue freezing the funds Muslim leaders challenge the decision in court where orders are made to unfreeze the funds until the matter is determined. This allows the Muslim fraudsters time to cover their tracks.

One third of the Federal Government budget is now spent on welfare and Muslims have made an art form of sucking every last cent available from the purse. 

Eighty seven percent of Muslims are unemployed (in the UK the figure is 85% although it's difficult to assess if that figure includes the unemployable... aged and young Muslims) most are in receipt of disability pensions. 

Others are rorting the “carer” system where one Muslim parent agrees to foster-care the other “incapacitated” parent’s children using a government handout of $200 per week per child. 

The original Muslim parent then claims she is unable to cope and her children are then foster-cared out to another Muslim parent and on and on it goes in a billion dollar roundabout. 

Of course the children all remain with their own parents and in their own homes without any checks because the Government wants no talk of Islamophobia. It is desperate for Islamic “inclusiveness” and fears the screams of victimisation from Islamic lobby groups which will be well aired by the ABC and Fairfax.

If you add to that the halal tax extortion racket that costs Australian shoppers many more millions it becomes clear just how much Islam itself is costing the average Aussie. 

More of a worry is where all this hard-earned Aussie money actually goes to. It goes overseas somewhere and you’re entitled to shudder to think where.

Now you’d reckon these guests of ours would be appreciative of this limitless well of milk and honey we provide for them without question. 

Well, not really, because many want to cut our heads off, change our legal system and create a Sharia State and the so called Islamic “moderates” don’t whimper a word of protest.

But it doesn’t end there... the forty Aussie lives lost trying to get Muslims a better life in their homelands are vilified as hell-bound infidels who deserved to die.

And our wonderful Government tells us it can’t afford more than a 1.5% increase in ADF pay?

Well, if Abbott’s not prepared to plug the massive Islamic financial drain on our resources, how about canning his beloved paid parental leave scheme, there’s an immediate $2.5 billion right there and what about the ABC’s $1.4 billion budget from which MD Mark Scott pays himself an obscene $800,000 pa? 

I know, what about Australia Post’s boss, Ahmed Fahour’s $4.8 million pa from which he pays (as a tax deduction of course) $4 million to a Muslim museum while at the same time sacking 900 Aussies!

Okay, if all that stuff is sacrosanct how about we cancel just two of those 70 flying lemons on order, the F-35 joint strike fighters? After all, they will be obsolete by the time we see one, if we ever do, and at $US161 million each that would neatly cover a CPI increase in pay for the ADF diggers.

Don’t want to do that either? Well, there’s a lazy billion still begging to be cut from the bloated Public Service. 

Fair dinkum, if the Government wanted to get serious, Joe Hockey could be back in surplus next week and our Aussie ADF blokes could have a nice Christmas... er, seasonal holiday period.

Funny how we honour them when they die for us, but show them scant respect while they remain alive.

All a matter of financial priorities I suppose.

Comments

I didn't take 24 hours to develop a comeback I just wasn't and am not interested in communicating with some one whose mind is closed.

Oh thank you. You have made my day. Another troll frothing at the mouth insulting people rather than addressing the facts. Your hopes for me and your comments about my intelligence are lost on my bloated sense of self worth. I am secure in who I am so nothing you can say about my intelligence nor my thinking skills concerns me. You know nothing of my journey of self discovery nor my true intelligence so your rants do not even touch me. It is nice to see that suddenly you can lift yourself out of the gutter and speak something intelligible. Why not put that mind to good use and write something meaningful instead of joining the rest of the foul mouthed and foul minded people who tend to troll around looking for something vile and destructive to say.

so you can speak in more articulate forms than pin dick rat fuck..... I thought that was the case....... I thought you could use some of your brain cells to do your own research. I can post links but you wont read them. Now my bloated sense of self worth has decided it has better things to do that chat with some moron who thinks I'm a Muslim just because I am better educated than him which means at a subconscious level you must have agreed with the statistics about education. I'm not Muslim I just happen to have critical thinking skills and detected the flaws in your puerile minded rant.

Thank you Mr Bates for pointing out my error. I made an assumption that Mr Fahour was a public servant. he is not and thus I stand corrected and rightly so. The figures for SES in the Public Service are correct. My assumption was flawed. However I can assure you the other figures concerning unemployment are accurate. Also I worked in the climate of foster care for 20 years so I can verify that payments can not be entered for more than one placement per child. There were ministerial complaints made by carers who took on the care of a child mid morning but could not be paid for that 24 hour period because the payment system does not recognise hours but days. so If I child exits a placement on Monday 27th October 2014 the payment ceases and is then entered for the new carer.

By the way if you have a genuine interest in being able to present an informed argument try google scholar to search for empirically tested research outcomes.

Melbourne University did a study so did Flinders University into the qualifications, education levels and employment of Muslims in Australia the studies extend back to 2006 and involved a study of Muslim graduates from university who came from diverse racial backgrounds such as Lebanese, Bangladesh, Indonesian, Turkey etc. So just not Arab Muslims from the middles east. Not only were these graduates better educated than most Australians they encountered discrimination and were paid less than their non Muslim peers with the same qualifications. If you want to question the Melbourne University and Flinders University you will need to be more articulate and have a more reasoned argument than 'bullshit'. These centres of learning adhere to empirical research methods.

No Mr Bates I only managed 98% in my Maths in Society Unit in Year 11. But that was a struggle because maths is not my strong point. Critical thinking is my strength. All of the information I have provided above comes from credible sources outside the distortion of the media. Why didn't you check the 13.4% unemployment figure rather than seek to find fault with my argument. It can be found at ABS or the Newcastle University. A critical thinker looks for flaws in their own argument and I have found mine in this one thank you. But a critical thinker also looks for merit in an opposing argument and recognises ones own biases. If my figures for unemployment and my knowledge of the payment system are so inaccurate why did Mr Pickering find it necessary to delete all my comments on Facebook.

No the mind Boggles Mr Pickering himself had to tell some lady she verballed him and that he never said most are in receipt of disability pensions. Read my post at the top of the page. Mr Pickering is telling pork pies. The figure for unemployed is 13.4 % Mr Pickering says it's 87%. Even you and his other fans can do the maths on that mix up. He has exaggerated his figures by 74%. See Mr Pickering did not factor into his post that some one that actually worked in the carer payment system would stumble on his post and recognise that he was not quoting credible sources. Ask him to verify his source and the statistics and he will delete you like he deleted me and other's who questioned him. I read very carefully, I research carefully and would never make a claim that I know can not be backed

Excuse me apparently a lot smarter and better educated than the average Non Muslim Australian. 21% of Muslim Australians hold a higher university degree while only 15% of no Muslim Australians have university qualifications.

say to muslims Fuck Off

When muslims stop threatening Australians with terrorism and when they stop arts king our police officers with knives etc etc then maybe the discrimination will stop . In the meantime I sau

Agreed.
Of course, sometimes, some people just don't want to debate. I've had debates on the internet and they always go nowhere. As long as people get to express their opinions while being respectful is all that matters.

National figures for Muslim unemployment 13.4% which means that 87% of Muslims are not on unemployment benefits. Many Muslims are have higher education than non Muslims in Australia. 21% have University degrees compared to 15% of non Muslim Australians. In spite of this Muslims in Australia who have University qualifications have income levels below their qualified non Muslim peers. Most Muslims report that they are happy with their economic circumstances even though they are paid less than the peers. There is more evidence to refute the lazy bludging Muslim and this evidence has proven that Muslims are actively discriminated against particularly Muslim women who wear the hijab. Newcastle University, Flinders University, Melbourne University and the ABS can verify these facts are correct.

Jai I do not know why my comments have remained on this sight maybe Mr Pickering is unaware of my post or can not delete it. But I posted several comments including this one on his Facebook page and they have all been deleted and I have been blocked. I have noticed a couple of other people wondering where their comments have gone. I do not care what a persons personal view is as long as they can back up their views if they are going to make public comments. 750,000 followers indicates people trust Mr Pickering and his source. I am disappointed because he does not need to exaggerate to get people having an open and honest debate. It is not wrong to have opposing views and to work through those views rationally and respectfully.

Certainly fair comments - none of which I can refute.
I would add that it is also good that your comments have remained to be read by others. Many wesbites would delete your comments on the basis that it contradicted those of the author of the website.
Maybe LP is more open to free thought and speech than some suspect?

Some of what you say rings true but a lot of it has questionable content which brings the rest of what you say under suspicion.
Since when does the CEO of any government body get $150-$175K? Absolute bollocks when you weigh it against the senior directors, executive driectors and other executive positions above that before even getting to CEO.
Once the red flags go up, it starts to sound like a diatribe from a union wanker (not saying that you are - just that it sounds like it....)

CUNTS

Like Great Britain, Sweden and Australia it is not home grown Islamic Gov't officials who allow unlimited, dysfunctional and non-assimilating Islamic Migration into these countries, it is the home-grown elected non-Islamic members of parliament, unelected bureaucrats and judges and the usual self-serving social-engineering industry who promote it. If the majority of the rest of us punters know that this is a problem, what is their agenda in not doing something about it.
