Hear hear!

Via @jarvanitakis, this quote from Australian Workers Union’s Paul Howes on the resurgence of refugee madness in Australia:

”The immaturity in political debate in Australia sometimes makes me sick. Question time is dominated by 78 people on a boat. We have around 50,000 visa overstayers every year. We are a nation of immigrants. The history of Australia since World War II has been successive waves of immigration. All were opposed by substantial sections of the population. They were wrong every time. Rudd has an approval rating of 68 per cent [and] is in a unique position to change the debate. Changing the way Australia deals with race would be pretty special – that’s Labor hero stuff.  Some things have to be above polling.”
