IMMIGRATION IS GOOD
... it's just Islam that is bad
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.
The nasty taste of a disastrous Islamic immigration experiment should not extend to all immigrants. We can credit good immigrants with contributing to our lifestyle, our wealth and our standing as a first-world Asian power but, as Howard said, “We will choose who comes here” and that makes today’s High Court ruling a critical high-water mark on the boat battle.
But, as many bloggers suggest should happen, no responsible Australian government will ignore the UN or breach international treaties and nor will we ignore our High Court’s rulings. To do that would be to degrade our standing as a nation and undo 200 years’ standing as a responsible nation.
The High Court has already shown its dislike for Scott Morrison’s “Sovereign Borders” by ruling his cap on boat arrival places, and his temporary protection visas “invalid” after the Senate voted down his attempt to re-introduce them in March this year. Let’s see which way Clive jumps on this one.
But that’s no problem anyway now there are no boat arrivals to invoke High Court rulings regarding visas or caps.
The High Court has predictably nestled itself comfortably somewhere between Left and hard Left ever since its Chief Justice, Sir Garfield Barwick advised Sir John Kerr how to deal with Whitlam.
So today you can count on the High Court remaining true to type and overruling the elected Executive. Yesterday’s successful application for an interim injunction is a huge victory for the Left and designed to effectively scuttle Abbott’s “turn-back” policy.
But the ABC’s and Fairfax’s delight will be short-lived because Abbott and Morrison have already morphed “turn-back” into “come-and-get” by cleverly massaging and bribing Indonesia’s and Sri Lanka’s corrupt militaries... something Labor, the ABC and Fairfax declared an impossibility.
Morrison’s mistake was to truncate processing of Tamils on board an Australian vessel, which acknowledged our receipt of the refugees, rather than simply ensuring their safety until the Sri Lankan navy arrived.
That action makes the High Court’s decision even easier.
Regardless, Morrison’s signature “Sovereign Borders” will be safe from High Court rulings and the Left’s ideology as long as conservative practicality rules.
